#BDS: StandWithUs to place ads at BART stations saying ‘Stop Palestinian terrorism, teach peace’

I cannot believe that these ads have been approved while those marking the 2nd anniversary of the war on Gaza haven't! 


"The pro-Israel national organization StandWithUs announced Jan. 6 that it is launching a new ad campaign, placing posters in six BART stations.
The posters have received BART approval and will go up in the Berkeley, 12th Street/Oakland, MacArthur, Civic Center, Balboa Park and Embarcadero BART stations starting Jan. 17, a StandWitUs spokesperson said.
Dubbed "Say Yes to Peace," the campaign has been launched, organizers said, to counter a recent poster campaign co-sponsored by Jewish Voice for Peace, a group often critical of the government and military of Israel. Those posters, still on display at three BART stations (according to the StandWithUs release), depicted Palestinian and Israel fathers with their young children, along with the headings "Be on our side: We are on the side of peace and justice" and "End U.S. military aid to Israel."

  1. I am very familiar with this group. They are trash. Why is it okay for them to show ads that promote war and occupation when it's not okay for JVP to show ads that promote peace? Oh wait, it's because the interests of SWU go along with the interests of the state.
