Two ad campaigns, one in New York City and the other in Portland, Oregon, are causing quite a controversy these days.
One has a very simple anti-war message.
jihad and jihad is an Islamic Arab term.
In Islam, the central doctrine that calls on believers to combat the enemies of their religion. According to the Qur'an and the Hadith, jihad is a duty that may be fulfilled in four ways: by the heart, the tongue, the hand, or the sword.
From what I've read, nobody is claiming that any other country is making an effort to fight jihad other than Israel. That means that most of the world is ready to accept jihad and the price we will all have to pay. Have New Yorkers and other Americans so easily forgotten what was behind the terror attack on 9-11, September 11, 2001?
There's a truly offensive, dangerous anti-Israel ad on Portland, Oregon's public transport.
An advertisement that seeks to bring attention to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will appear on TriMet buses and MAX trains next month. Sept. 26, 2012. (Americans United for Palestinian Human Rights) KOIN
Where are the cries of protest? This anti-Israel campaign is based on lies, so why hasn't the American Jewish community and others who claim to be pro-Israel and pro-truth condemn it?
In the History of the World, there never has been an Arab country called Palestine, not an Arab people by that name. It's a modern invention, davka, by Europeans to prevent Zionists, Jews, from establishing a state in our fully documented, historic Homeland. That's the truth!
The United Nations has done unprecedented damage by perpetuating refugee status on Arabs who willingly fled, in most cases relatively new homes, when the State of Israel was established in 1948. Neighboring Arab countries have kept their fellow Arabs in refugee camps instead of absorbing them into their countries and economies. This was supposed to be a simple population exchange, something that has happened many times in the history of the world. A similar number of Jews left or fled Arab countries at the same time. They now live mostly in Israel as full, active citizens.
