Boston Transit Rejects AFDI Pro-Israel Ads After Restoring Libelous Anti-Israel Ad

     Last week, the Boston Transit Authority restored vicious anti-Israel ads that had been removed. They were taken down because of the fallacious libel they advanced. The Jew-haters strong armed the MBTA to put them back up. We of course, countered the libel with truth. I submitted our pro-Israel ads to the MBTA last week.

We responded by submitting our pro-Israel ads, which were denied. Our message is that any war on innocent civilians is savagery. 9/11 was savagery. 7/7 in London. March 11th in Madrid. The jihad against the Jews is savagery.

The MBTA said that our ad was "disparging and demeaning." To whom? Savages? Any war targeting innocent civilians is savagery. And the war on the Jewish people is a war on innocent civilians. Whether it's targeting schools with missiles from Gaza or the bloody wholesale slaughter of a Jewish family in the middle of the night, the Fogel family, it's savagery. Jihad is savage. The murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens was savage. The relentless 60-year campaign of terror against the Jewish people is savage. The torture of hostage Gilad Shalit was savage. The bloody hacking to death of the Fogel family was savage. The Munich Olympic massacre was savage. The unspeakable torture of Ehud Goldwasser was savage. The tens of thousands of rockets fired from Gaza into southern Israel (into schools, homes, etc.) are savage. The vicious Jew-hatred behind this genocide is savage. The endless demonization of the Jewish people in the Palestinian and Arab media is savage. The refusal to recognize the state of Israel as a Jewish state is savage. The list is endless.

Below are the vicious anti-Israel ads that the MBTA restored

AntiIsrael ads

The city of Boston sanctions jihad by denying our ad while allowing a Jew-hating ad full of lies to run. It is Israel that is denied her land, as set forth in the San Remo Resolution and in the Balfour declaration. It is Israel that keeps giving her land away in her relentless and self-destructive pursuit for peace.

The Arabs left their homes at the behest of Muslim leaders, assuring them that they could return after they annihilated the Jews who had been living there for thousands of years. The Jews implored the Muslims to stay and live side by side with them in peace. Refugees? No, propaganda. 60 years of hatred. The ad is lies, lies and more lies.

We are filing suit against the MBTA. David Yerushalmi and Robert Muise of the American Freedom Law Center are our legal counsel. This is viewpoint discrimination and a violation our first amendment rights. The MBTA may harbor the age-old hate of antisemitism and allow it on their transit platforms, but they cannot and will not silence us. They cannot pick and choose what position they prefer. We won in NY and we will win in Boston.

The freedom of speech is increasingly threatened in the U.S. in recent years — the Left and Islamic supremacists are doing all they can to rule honest discussion of Islamic jihad violence and Jew-hatred out of the realm of acceptable public discourse.

The notoriously pro-jihadi Lisa Wangsness of The Boston Globe has no problem with the anti-Israel posters, the blood libel and antisemitism. But watch her claws come out when Wangsness does a story on our ads. She actually quotes the vicious anti-semite Phillip Weiss of Mondoweiss.

You remember Wangsness — she conspired with Islamic supremacists to get Robert Spencer cancelled at a conference at the Catholic diocese of Worcester, Massachusetts back in January.

MBTA restores ads critical of Israel By Lisa Wangsness and Martine Powers | Boston Globe

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority said Friday it would restore advertisements criticizing Israel that had been removed after a rash of complaints from the public.

The ads, which appeared throughout the transit system, depict four maps that purport to show “the Palestinian loss of land” to Israel between 1946 and 2010. Text alongside the maps says: “4.7 million Palestinians are Classified by the UN as Refugees.”

The MBTA said Friday morning that all 80 posters had been taken down Wednesday and Thursday, just a few days after being posted. The transit agency said its advertising contractor, Titan, made the decision.

“The MBTA informed Titan of the complaints and Titan decided to remove the ad,” said Joe Pesaturo, spokesman for the agency.

But Friday afternoon, Pesaturo said the ads were going back up. He gave little explanation for the change, saying only that a miscommunication between the T and Titan prompted the ads’ removal.
