San Francisco Runs Anti-Semitic Outdoor Campaign — No Word on AFDI/SIOA Pro-Israel Campaign
San Francisco BART has been running an antisemitic outdoor campaign at a number of outdoor BART stations for well over a month now. I became aware of them last month when Seattle had agreed to run antisemitic ads on their buses, but had second thoughts when I submitted pro-Israel educational ads.
After Seattle changed its policy on account of my ads, I submitted our outdoor campaign to San Francisco back on December 29th.
Here is the report from the notorious Jew-hating site “The Electronic Intifada,” the same Palestinian blogger that outed Barack Hussein Obama as an anti-semite back in March 2007 (and there is more here).
Check out the ad — a play on the jihad is a religion of peace.
Boycott roundup: day of action against TIAA-Cref

Palestine solidarity activists are organizing a day of action today, 10 December, to encourage “people of conscience” to join the more than 18,000 who have already signed a US-wide petition urging financial holdings corporation TIAA-CREF to disinvest from construction vehicle manufacturer Caterpillar Incorporated.
According to campaign coordinating group Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), TIAA-CREF has invested more than $250 million in Caterpillar, which the group says is “complicit” in Israel’s violations of US and international law (“December 10: TIAA-CREF day of action).
Yes, your basic nightmare.
This day of action is just part of JVP’s ongoing campaign to target TIAA-CREF. In July, activists attended the shareholder meeting and presented an “overwhelming” amount of signatures they had gathered in support of TIAA-CREF’s divestment from companies that profit from Israeli occupation policies.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian-led movement of boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israeli human rights violations and apartheid policies continues to gather steam elsewhere around the world.
