    The group behind a controversial anti-Islam ad posted in several Metro stations is set to release a new one.

    It features a photo of the Twin Towers under attack on Sept. 11, 2001. Next to it, there's a verse from the Quran that reads:  "Soon shall we cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers."

    The ad is sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, which is behind the anti-jihad posters that are up in a four Metro stations. The organization is hoping to place this new ad in Metro stations as well.

    Metro officials said the new ad has not been submitted to them yet, but they will likely be put up due to the U.S. District Court's recent decision allowing such advertisements.
