MBTA to allow Randish anti-Palestinian ads after language tweaked

Boston Magazine reports the T will allow ads from an anti-Palestinian group now that it's agreed to modify a supposed quote from Ayn Rand that refers to "those engaged in savage acts" against Israel rather than just "savages" and to change a demand to defeat "jihad" with a demand to defeat "violent jihad."

The change came after a federal judge declined to force the T to immediately run the ads from the American Freedom Defense Initiative of New Hampshire.
