Seattle peace activists are planning to post anti-Israel ads on the sides of local commuter buses protesting US support for the Jewish state, prompting outcry from Jewish groups.
A group called the Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign paid King County 1,794 dollars to plaster the ads on the sides of 12 buses starting Monday to coincide with the three-year anniversary of the start of Israel's war with Gaza.
The ads are due to run for four weeks. In Seattle, the proposed bus ads have led to more than 2,000 calls and e-mails to the King County Department of Transportation -- most of them opposing the move -- according to spokesperson Linda Thielke
Intractable anti-Israel views and warped morality? These folks would fit in nicely at the UN.
