San Francisco leaders denounce anti-Islamic ads that will appear on city buses

San Francisco leaders are denouncing a series of anti-Islamic advertisements that will appear on 10 city buses.

Several leaders joined Arab and Muslim community leaders to publicly condemn the ads as racist and offensive.

The ads are paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative and feature Osama bin Laden, the Times Square car bomber and the alleged gunman in the Fort Hood, Texas, shootings.

The city's transit agency says it will give the $5,000 used to pay for the ads to the city's Human Rights Commission to study the impact of discrimination on San Francisco's Islamic communities.

The group ran similar ads in San Francisco in August and has also posted ads in New York City, including one in September that called enemies of Israel "savages."
