New York ~ Pro-Palestinian Ads Arouse Ire


[ … but don’t they always ]

Provocative poster advertisements that are on display at Metro-North train platforms

showing shrinking Palestinian land in Israel

have alarmed a leader in the Jewish community

who is concerned it could leads to acts of hate.

“This is anti-Semitic

because when people think of Jews – they think of the Jewish state,”

[ … instead of the zionist one …  ]

says DovidEfune, editor of the Manhattan-based Jewish newspaper, The Algemeiner.

“Jews have seen this happen so many times. It always starts with messaging that says Jews are committing a crime.”

[ Don’t see ‘Jews’ mentioned anywhere on the billboard, Dovid ]

The ads show a succession of shrinking Palestinian territory in four maps

and contain a headline about 4.7 million Palestinians being classified as refugees by the United Nations.

They were paid for by an 84-year-old ex-Wall Street financier who lives in Connecticut.

“If the facts are inflammatory, then they are inflammatory,”

says Henry Clifford, the chairman of a 10-member group called the Committee for Peace in Israel/Palestine.

“All of the Middle East is infected with the virus of the Zionist – Palestinian conflict.

People need to know the truth of the matter.”

Clifford said he paid $25,000 through an ad agency

to run the posters at as many as 10 Metro-North railroad stations,

including White Plains and Chappaqua, but he was not clear about which stations they were posted.
