Calif. bus ads called offensive to Islam

SAN FRANCISCO — Civic officials joined Arab and Muslim leaders to denounce what they call offensive anti-Islamic ads that will appear on 10 buses for the next month in San Francisco.

The ads were paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative and feature photos of Osama bin Laden, the Times Square car bomber, and the alleged gunman in the Fort Hood, Texas, shootings, accompanied by quotes about warfare and weapons that the group links to Islam.
