A new ad campaign hitting the streets of D.C. this week will undoubtedly turn some heads, as it features Adolf Hitler having a sit-down meeting with “leader of the Muslim world” Haj Amin al-Husseini.

The ads were created by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, led by conservative pundit Pamela Geller, and will be displayed on 20 Metro buses for a month, a local ABC affiliate reported.

The ads call for an end to U.S. foreign aid to Islamic countries.

“My intent is leapfrog over a media that is not even-handed, that is advancing the propaganda against the Jewish state,” Miss Geller said. “Many folks are supporting the ad. I’ve gotten hundreds of emails in support of the ad. Let’s be even-handed.”

The ads are supposedly in response “to the vicious Jew-hating ads … unleashed on Washington DC Metro buses last month,” by American Muslims for Palestine, the group says on its Web site, The Washington Post reported.

CAIR has spoken out against the new bus ads.

“This is a propaganda campaign designed to incite hatred against American Muslims, and this campaign has been based on false information, taking things out of context from the Quran,” said Nihad Awad, National Executive Director of CAIR.

CAIR says it is considering the possibility of a counter-attack ad, and is offering free copies of the Quran in response, ABC 7 reported.
