A New York City blogger is launching a crusade against "the Islamization of America" —using the sides of 40 NYC buses. "Fatwa on your head? Is your community or family threatening you? Leaving Islam?" read the ads pasted on the buses. "Got questions? Get Answers" it continues. The ads then refer people to a website that decries 'the falsity of Islam,' reports the Daily News.

The campaign is the work of Pamela Geller, a right-wing New Yorker best known for video-blogging her bikini-clad, anti-Palestinian rant, notes Gawker. Geller insists the campaign is helpful, not hurtful. "It's not offensive to Muslims, it's religious freedom," she tells the AP. "It's not targeted at practicing Muslims. It doesn't say 'leave,' it says 'leaving' with a question mark."
