taking a trip into the city? let me know if you see this. it denies that the majority of Palestine was owned by the state and while yes I think that is "Socialist" and bad... you can't tell me Palestinians owned it
(EOZ) From Fox News:
Advertisements at train stations in suburban New York depicting shrinking Palestinian territory in Israel are riling some critics who say they are “deliberately misleading and inaccurate,” has learned.
The ads, which were purchased by The Committee for Peace in Israel and Palestine, show the “Palestinian Loss of Land” from 1946 to 2010. An accompanying headline reads: "4.7 million Palestinians are classified by the U.N. as Refugees."
Henry Clifford, co-chairman of the group, told he paid $25,000 to display posters at 50 Metro-North Railroad stations for 30 days. They are to “educate and inform people” on the proper historical context of the region, he said.
“There’s always room for discussion of different sides of every story, but there’s no room for discussion on fact,” Clifford said. “Anyone who challenges these maps and the content of these ads, it’s they’re obligation to show that they’re historically wrong. The ball is in their court.
Excellent! This gives me the chance to repost this:(MORE)
yeah we have a big ass sign in Poughkeepsie that you can't miss downtown. It says remember the USS Liberty and generally promotes 911 Truth. We have a serious cultural problem in that people don't investigate their conspiracies.
