Pro-Palestinian Group to Attack Netanyahu with Bus Ads throughout his DC Visit

The ads use of quotes from a 2001 Netanyahu speech, in which he supposedly described the U.S. as "a thing you can move very easily." Watch the tape here.

On the week of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at a joint meeting of Congress, a pro-Palestinian group has launched a new campaign across Washington, DC, attacking Netanyahu for his actions and urging the U.S. government to end its foreign aid to Israel, Ma’an reported.

The campaign will run bus ads across Washington, DC during Netanyahu’s visit.

The campaign was officially launched last Tuesday, by American Muslims for Palestine. The group said in a statement that the campaign aims to use the Netanyahu’s “contentious address” to congress on the Iranian nuclear program to bring to focus the “detrimental impact” of U.S. support for Israel.

Senan Shaqdeh, a Palestinian-American coordinator of anti-Israel boycott campaigns, told the PLO Sunday that the controversy around Netanyahu’s speech in the American media “created an opportunity to educate average Americans about the crimes and violations of human rights Israel commits everyday using U.S. taxpayers’ money.”

That’s nice.

The ads use of quotes from a 2001 Netanyahu speech, in which he supposedly described the U.S. as “a thing you can move very easily.”

As the tape below shows, Netanyahu is quite braggadocios about the ease with which he would control Israel-U.S. relations, but he bases his notion not on America being an easy mark, as the quote misrepresents, but rather on the fact that, as he puts it, 80 percent of the American people support Israel.

In that recorded speech, Ma’an reports, Netanyahu emphasizes that he managed to “terminate the Oslo accords” and convince Washington to agree that Israel would not pull back from any areas he deemed as militarily strategic sites in the West Bank.

Should look good on a bus.
