Madison Ave & Israel

The subway system in America's capital city is set to be the scene of a poster campaign war between a pro-Palestinian organization seeking to harm Israel's image and a pro-Israel group which has decided to fight back.

Last month, the 'US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation' (ETO) placed 20 poster ads showing "an imposing tank pointing its main firing turret at a child with a schoolbag walking along a dirt road," the Canadian Jewish News (CJN) reported.

"'Imagine if this were your child's path to school. Palestinians don't have to imagine,' the poster states, before continuing to call for an end to US aid for 'Israel's brutal military occupation… paid for by US taxpayers like you,'" the report added.

Describing the ETO posters as "deceptive and emotionally manipulative," SWU's International Director, Roz Rothstein, said: "Israel is not fighting children. It is defending itself against extremists like Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad whose charters call for Israel's obliteration and whose terrorist attacks target civilians, including school children and toddlers."

This is how Madison Avenue should be employed by Conservative groups...
Along with American Idol, Miami CSI, and other tripe... The unwashed masses should hear the Right's message in commercials... To counteract the subliminal and not so subliminal messages from the left-wing nuts in Hollywood that have been incorporated into their comedies and dramas.

Israel! You go girl!

Are you taking bets on how many of the TV networks would reject any pro-Israel ads for being too controversial?

They'd accept the pro-Palestinian ads, of course. No controversy there!

I'm afraid today's America isn't cheering for the cowboy wearing the white hat anymore, they're cheering for the one in black.

One more thing, is this what Rosie O means when she says the terrorist are "Moms and Dads" just like us?
