I like how rehmat posts about the anti-Israel adds and makes some very good points along the way. I would have preferred to comment on his blog but I have forgotten my Wordpress login info (long ago).

Last December, a Seattle Metro Transit bus advertising campaign that accused Israel of committing war crimes in the Gaza Strip was rejected by King County Executive Dow Constantine under pressure from Jewish Lobby groups. The good-old adds have made the come back and Jewish groups furious.
The new ads campaign, entitled Be on our side has appeared in prominent transit stations in Chicago, San Francisco Bay Area, Albuquerque, Boston, Berkeley, Oakland, and Washington DC. The ads depicts two grandfathers – a Native Palestinian and the other a European Jew – each holding a grandchild. The text reads: “Join with us. Build peace with justice and euality. End military aid to Israel“.
Interestingly, the ads only mentions Obama’s promised $30 billion aid to the Zionist entity instead that the later has sucked $3 trillion out of US taxpayers, 15% of whom cannot afford basic medicare. I bet Rep. Ron Paul will approve the text of the ads.
The ads are co-sponsored by Jewish Voice for Peace, American Muslims for Palestine, the Middle East Children’s Alliance, and Bay Area Women in Black.
Abe Foxman, national director ADL must be feeling very uncomfortable about these ads resurfacing as he did last year. The guy has very funny standards of morality. Last year Abe blasted one of Israel’s top American supporters, the Islamophobe Glenn Beck for accusing anti-Muslim billionaire George Soro as a “Jewish boy helping sending the Jews to the death camps,” calling it “offensive” and “horrific.”
Beck in his Fox TV show had claimed that during the Holocaust, the 14-year-old George Soros “used to go around with this anti-Semite and deliver papers to the Jews and confiscate their property and then ship them off.”
George Soro is man of many evil talents. He funds a number of think tanks and NGOs which are involved in the destablization of Muslim world. His fingers have been spotted in turmoils in Tunisia, Egypt, Ukraine, Georgia, Iran, Libya and Syria to name few.
