The Palestinians have suffered not only at the hands of the zionists but the truth about their suffering is also deliberately suppressed and distorted worldwide so that people would not learn about it. This may be changing, slowly but surely. The saga of the zionist theft of Palestinian land is being graphically depicted through maps that are finding their way onto the transit systems in the US. This is a small but significant victory.

Slowly but surely people worldwide are waking up to the reality of the Zionist theft of Palestine. A picture, as they say, is worth a thousand words. A map is more so, especially if it accurately captures the reality that most people are unaware of or have been deliberately kept in the dark.
The map in question shown with this story depicts the disappearance of Palestine over the years. This Ad has appeared in a number of transit systems in the US, including New York, Washington and Boston. The Ads are paid for by concerned Americans who feel that people in the United States must know the reality of Palestine that has been carefully concealed from the public as a result of massive disinformation campaign by the Zionists and their allies in the media.
Almost all American politicians of every stripe are also in the pocket of the Israel lobby. Those that dare oppose the Zionists are subjected to vicious attacks and demonization.
It the Boston transit system, the Ads appeared on Monday October 21 but a few days later, Henry Clifford of Connecticut, who arranged the “substantial” ad buy in subway stations and commuter platforms, received the following email message from Titan, the outdoor advertising agency that has the Boston metro contract:
“Hi Henry – just wanted to give you the heads up, your campaign posted on Monday and within hours the MBTA [Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority] fielded numerous complaints. They have informed us that we need to remove all of the posters from the system, so I’m letting you know that everything will be down shortly.
“Like I said, just giving you a heads up. We will be reimbursing you in full for the entire campaign in the coming days.
“Sorry for any inconvenience this will cause.
Josh Stevens who works for Titan, declined to discuss the matter. Henry Clifford, head of the Committee for Peace in Israel and Palestine, says the ads appeared in the New York and Washington metro transit systems as well. While they also received many similar complaints, they were not taken down.
“You’d think Boston is an intellectual center of the country, with all those universities, and that they’d be broadminded and open-minded enough to see this,” Clifford said.
That, however, is not the end of the story. On Friday (October 25), Boston magazine reported that the Ads were going back up again. The magazine quoted an MBTA spokesman: “The ads are going back up. Their removal was the result of a miscommunication between the MBTA and its contractor, Titan. There was a breakdown in our established procedures for handling complaints about specific ads.”
This is a small but significant victory for truth and justice but those that care for such values cannot rest on their laurels.
In Toronto, a similar Ad campaign launched by Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East had its request to run similar Ads on the Toronto Transit Commission was turned down.
A petition is being circulated to have these Ads run on the subway and bus systems the Zionists, it seems, are far too powerful in Canada to allow the truth to emerge yet.
