Muslim and anti-Muslim groups go to war in bus, print ads
by Cathy Lynn Grossman
A public opinion war on Middle East politics is playing out this spring in new advertising campaigns on public buses and in newspapers.
It began when the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) launched bus ads during the April Cherry Blossom Festival condemning U.S. aid to Israel because of that country's continuing occupation of Palestinian territories.
Then on Monday (May 19), Pamela Geller's American Freedom Defense Initiative countered by deploying 15-foot-long ads on 20 buses in the Washington, D.C., system that equate opposition to Israel's policies with Nazism. One ad shows the grand mufti of Jerusalem meeting Hitler during World War II.
