SEATTLE-- In response to a proposed anti-Israeli ad campaign, a group has proposed anti-Palestinian ads to also run on the side of Metro buses.
A conservative Los Angeles writer submitted the anti-Palestinian ad to Metro Transit.The anti-Israeli ad campaign is scheduled to appear on 12 buses starting Monday, proposed by the Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign. The group pushing the anti-Palestinian campaign has asked to put their message on 25 buses.
Metro has not yet decided whether to run the opposing ad campaign. However on Wednesday, Metro officials met with Seattle's Jewish leaders.
Since last Friday, Metro has received around 2,000 emails about the anti-Israeli ad campaign. Most of the messages object to the ad.
A pro-Israel rally will be held at Metro headquarters on Monday at 10:00 a.m.
