JNS.org – The pro-Israel education group StandWithUs has launched an advertising campaign for the month of July on San Francisco’s Muni bus system to address the latest round of anti-Israel ads.

“Anti-Israel groups attempt to misinform the public in order to undermine American support for Israel. Their ads typically demonize Israel and blame it for the lack of peace.  They ignore context including the continued deadly actions and ideology of Palestinian terrorist groups like Hamas,” Roz Rothstein, CEO of StandWithUs, said in a statement.

According to StandWithUs, the ads highlight “Israel’s diversity, religious freedoms and the benefits of the continuing Israel-U.S. relationship.” The group has countered numerous anti-Israel ads over the past several years in cities across North America.

“StandWithUs has countered every anti-Israel ad placed in San Francisco and beyond, and will continue to do so. We cannot let hostile messages, with their deceptive, velvet-gloved rhetoric, influence unsuspecting commuters who may not know the facts,” said Dr. Mike Harris of StandWithUs and the San Francisco Voice for Israel group.

    Its amazing to me that people actually believe Israel is to blame for the lack of peace in the Middle East. A little investigation and some common sense would reveal that belief to be absolutely ridiculous.

    In San Francisco buses, ‘Stand With Us’ should should post two-line, unscripted photo-posters of how Gay Rights activists are treated in Israel and its Muslim neighbors, with small symbols of the ‘Star of David’ or the ‘Red Crescent’ in the top right corner, to identify the place

    The lies put out by the anti-Israel forces in the USA and Europe derive from the Great lies put out by the Nazis during their massive anti-Semitic propaganda campaigns of the ’30s.
    They are woven from the same whole cloth used by the Islamist hate groups to demonize Israel. If you tell a BIG lie loud and often enough you will win some points.
    Truth spoken equally loud can and does represent the anti-venom needed.
