Subway station billboard battle is latest flareup in Israeli-Palestinian conflict

WESPAC Foundation's subway ad campaign is the first volley in a war of words playing out on billboards. A pro-Israel group plans a counter-campaign.

A subway station billboard war is the latest flareup in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The dispute began with posters urging an end to U.S. military aid for Israel, prompting a City Council member to demand an end to the ads - and spawning an upcoming series of counter-ads.

"This is a highly political campaign with a controversial underlying anti-Israel message," Councilman Lewis Fidler (D-Brooklyn) wrote MTA President Thomas Prendergast.

"I would urge you to disallow and/or remove these advertisements."

The group behind the ads, the Westchester County-based WESPAC Foundation, said the subway spots are intended to encourage dialogue and not dissension.

"If the councilman thinks they'e anti-Israeli, he should say why," said Felice Gelman, a member of the group. "I have family in Israel. They deserve peace. And U.S. policies are not helping."

Israel was slated to receive roughly $3 billion in military aid this year from the U.S. The ads - with the tagline "End U.S. military aid to Israel" - appeared in 18 stations beginning Sept. 5.

The pro-Israel group Stand With Us said it planned to counter the WESPAC campaign with a series of ads appearing in stations later this month.

"We didn't ask for a billboard war," said the nonprofit group's CEO, Roz Rothstein. "But the group putting them up wants a response, and we have to give them a response."

The answering ad shows two small boys with their arms over each other's shoulders. "The Palestinian Authority Must Accept The Jewish State & Teach Peace, Not Hate," the copy reads.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said it had no problem with the ads.

"There are First Amendment rights here, and the advertisement adheres to our guidelines," said MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz.

Straphangers in the Times Square subway station shrugged off the controversy.

"I really have no reaction to it," said Alex Zambrano, 34, of the East Village. "I know what's going on in Palestine and Israel. But it's just like every other ad that no one pays attention to."

It will end like every other billboard in the NYC subway system. Drawn on with obscene images and words in either thought balloons or as words coming out of the people's mouths. There might even be a gang symbol or two.

Who's the blurry person strolling by?
She's a metaphor for the fuzzy and indistinguishable borders, and the bleary political climate, between Israel and Palestine.

maaannnnn.......

Nah. Plenty of uber Dems are pro-Israel (like Harry Reid). Not really surprising. It's one of the more bipartisan issues.


I just wonder if those people on the side of "peace and justice" also want to end aid to the Palestinian authority since they violate freedom of the press and give the Death Penalty to people who sell land to Jews. Probably not.

If they just came out and said: "Hey, we're anti-Israel. We don't like it and we think you shouldn't give it any money," I'd have no problem with this. It's the fake pretense of being for "peace and justice." GLAAD is anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian, even though Israel has a thriving gay community and big Pride Parades every year, yet in the Palestinian Authority, homosexuality is a crime. Code Pink supports the Palestinians even though Honor Killings are still a common legal practice there. It's just the dishonesty that disgusts me. Not to mention that they are selling out their own supporters for some unrelated political (or Antisemitic) agenda.

What? Most of it goes to pay for American-made hardware anyway. Plus, the security it provides enables Israeli companies to invest close to $40 billion annually into the US economy. It's a smart investment.

I'm sure Neon already knew that Dems will rape their own mothers with shards of glass, to please whoever happens to be their constituency. Of course a NY Dem will pay lip service to Jewish causes.

As an intelligence source/outpost/clearinghouse to keep tabs on the anti-American plotting and planning going on in the neighboring savage lands, Israel is an invaluable ally. investment and aid to Israel is worth every penny we send them.

Israel is an island fortress of civilization awash in a vast sea of Muslim savagery. If Israel were to fall, the shift in the balance of power would go in a a frighteningly anti-American direction. Trust me... we don't want that to happen. We just don't.

Go fuck yourself with that shit! We all know you all have it in little satchels usually attached to a necklace and worn at all times.
Right? We know damn well the Jews are keistering their gelt. At any given moment, your average Yid has probably got around 2 lbs. of gold and 40 karats of diamonds stashed up their tuchuses.

They're not fooling anybody.

How?

Okay... how about we let Israel off the leash and then we look the other way while they change the Palestinian problem fundamentally and permanently.
