I don't know how long this will remain, but take a look at the Forward Newspaper Online - there's an animated ad near the top right. It's from an outfit called "Brit Tzedek v'Shalom" - "America's Largest Grassroots Jewish Peace Organization." And, true to the Orwellian term "Peace Organization," they seem to be pro-terror. For example, they have a letter writing campaign to thank Congress for refusing to hold the PA to their side of the bargain. Good work, guys!
Anyway, as you can see from the ad on the Forward site, their latest letter writing campaign (science has not yet determined whether they have any other type of campaign) urges folks to write the President, encouraging him to (somehow) ensure that the Gaza disengagement plan succeeds. Fair enough.
But take a look again at that animated ad. The first image is Jewish Israelis - let's assume they're settlers - holding M-16s and possibly screaming (it looks like they're on partrol and calling out for some reason). The next image is Palestinian "gunmen" shooting their rifles into the air (or at least pointing them skyward) and shouting.
The text over these images: "Don't Let the Gaza Disengagement Fail!" You have to love it - those two armed groups are the same. Don't let either of them muck it up!
