The pro-Israel education group StandWithUs (SWU) has announced that it will unveil several pro-Israel advertisements on New York’s Metro-North transit system in Westchester County over the next month.

The SWU ads come in response to anti-Israel ads by the American Muslims for Palestine, which is labeled by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as a “leading anti-Zionist group.”

“Anti-Israel activists continuously seek ways to attempt to undermine America’s strong support for the Jewish state with campaigns that misrepresent Israel,” Roz Rothstein, CEO of StandWithUs, said in a statement.

SWU’s said its ads intend to “celebrate Israel’s diversity” as well as Israel’s close alliance with the U.S. and efforts toward peace with the Palestinians.

New York’s transit system has been a frequent venue for the battle over Israel’s public image. Last year, the Metro Transit Authority (MTA) banned an American Freedom Defense Initiative ad condemning radical Islam and supporting Israel, but a federal judge overturned that ruling, arguing that the ad was protected under the First Amendment.
