Same Old Story

Thursday, 23 December 2010

It’s happened before. The public defamation of Jews.
But in Seattle??

An organization, known as the Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign, paid $1,800 to place the following ad on twelve Metro Transit buses in Seattle:

A visit to their website encourages folks to pressure the United States to end its financing of the “apartheid state,” “war crimes,” “ethnic cleansing,” etc.

No mention on the site of the suicide bombings, continued shelling of citizens in Sderot, kidnapping/murdering of Israeli soldiers, etc.

Apparently, Metro Transit was taken aback by the public response and has now reconsidered their decision. A move that was prompted by some counter-ads that were submitted, causing Metro Transit to hastily change its advert policy.

It goes without saying that the Zionist lobby is being held responsible for clamping down on the free speech of the Awareness group…

    Sadly, having spent an entire semester last year studying anti-Semitism, I am not surprised by this “news.” It is ironic, though, that the money spent for the ads totaled $1800 — such a nice round Jewish number.

      I thought so as well. But wanted to see if anyone else caught it 😉

    Ugh. 😦 Distressing to say the least.
