Bus ads against Israel popping up all over the US

Judy Lash-Balint reports that ads like the one above are going to appear on buses in Seattle beginning on January 1.
The ads apparently violate the local Transit Authority's guidelines for advertising. Metro Transit guidelines state that anything can be posted on the side of Seattle buses : "As long as the images and material used don't interfere with public safety or insult specific groups to the point that a riot could be incited, vandalism could occur or public safety could be threatened."

Well, wouldn't you think that some vandalism might occur given the fact that singling out Israel on charges of "war crimes" is so pathetic. I guess the Seattle group doesn't deem it worthwhile to pay for bus signs accusing any other country that tries to defend its citizens against rocket attacks....
StandWithUs points out that the same ads appear on buses in Houston, Albuquerque and San Francisco. But not, so far as I have seen or heard, here in the People's Republic of Massachusetts, where I am still visiting.

Anyway, once it's Monday morning in Seattle (I'm sure you'll be sleepless until then), you can call the local transit authority in Seattle to complain at +1-206-553-3000.

Read the whole thing for more details.

The blood libel is kosher.

Where is the outrage? Really, there's no accounting for taste when it comes to the war upon Israel's existence.
