An anti-Israel group, www.twopeoplesonefuture.org, has just placed the attached ad calling for the end of aid to Israel in 18 subways stations in NYC. They claim to target Israel only because "Israel is the strong party, Israel is the Occupying Power and Israel is the only party that can actually end the Occupation and pave the way for a just peace." IT IS NOT ABOUT PEACE. IT IS ANOTHER THINLY VEILED ATTACK ON ISRAEL. For example, certain of the sponsors of this ad campaign actively support Israel boycotts and general Arab solidarity. This is not about promoting peace; it is about attacking Israel.
How can you help?
1. The ad placement is handled by CBS Outdoor. Please send an email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your concern about this ad campaign.
3. Call the MTA at 212-878-7000 and, in response to the prompts, press 1, 3, * and then either 2 for the press office and/or 4 for corporate affairs. Leave a message. You can also email them at http://mta-nyc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/mta_nyc.cfg/php/enduser/ask.php
4. GET THE WORD OUT. Forward this email to your friends and family. If we do not act to protect Israel, no one will.

I have just learned of the anti-Israel ad campaign that has been launched in 18 NYC subway stations by twopeoplesonefuture.org. I am contacting you to express my strong disapproval with this ad campaign. The campaign is supported by the anti-Israel lobby, whose agenda is not peace but the destruction of the State of Israel. Second, it unfairly penalizes Israel for defending itself. New York City should not allow these types of ads to be run in our Transit System.
