New Metro North ads
Last month we did several posts about the awesome maps ad that ran on Metro-North commuter stations in New York, chronicling Palestinian dispossession.
Well the other side is fighting back. Writes a friend, “This sign is on all the local railway stations from Croton to Grand Central!” I’m told it is underwritten by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, the Pamela Geller outfit.
The AFDI also sponsored that San Francisco Muni ad: “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man…. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.”
I’m glad the issue is being politicized. An open discussion, and debate over the facts, are in the interest of those who seek justice in this conflict. That said, can you imagine an ad saying, “It’s not anti-semitism, it’s realism about Jews?” and that then listed Israeli war crimes? Thanks to Andrew Courtney.
