When the Prime Minister of Israel says that the way to deal with Palestinians is to “beat them up, not once but repeatedly, beat them up so it hurts so badly, until it’s unbearable,” Americans need to know. When Israel’s Minister of Education says “I’ve killed lots of Arabs in my life – and there’s no problem with that,” Americans need to know. When Israel’s Minister of Justice posts on her Facebook page “[Palestinians] are all enemy combatants, and their blood shall be on all their heads. Now this also includes the mothers of the martyrs, who send them to hell with flowers and kisses,” Americans need to know.

And that’s exactly what we are going to do with this campaign–show Americans the violent racism of Israel’s US-backed leaders in their own words. We are putting these and other quotes in prominent locations in major cities. This campaign will link to our website where visitors can find additional quotes from prominent Israeli leaders.

If you are tired of watching the leaders of both political parties scramble to blame Palestinians for their own oppression in order to get some of AIPAC’s $80 million annual budget, now is your chance to show the American public what their elected officials won’t. But we need to raise another $38,000 by July 31 to make it happen. Will you help us give Palestinians the voice they deserve? Thank you for your generosity and continued support.

Palestine Advocacy Project creates public media and education campaigns that expose Americans to the Palestinian struggle and advocate for an end to Israeli human rights abuses. To learn more about Palestine Advocacy Project, visit www.palestineadvocacyproject.org.

Supporter,

When the Prime Minister of Israel says that the way to deal with Palestinians is to “beat them up, not once but repeatedly, beat them up so it hurts so badly, until it’s unbearable,” Americans need to hear him. When his Minster of Education says “I’ve killed lots of Arabs in my life – and there’s no problem with that,” Americans need to know. When his Minister of Justice posts on her Facebook page “[Palestinians] are all enemy combatants, and their blood shall be on all their heads. Now this also includes the mothers of the martyrs, who send them to hell with flowers and kisses,” Americans should take note.

Help us show Americans the violent racism of Israel’s political leadership.

Palestine Advocacy Project is building a campaign that will show Americans the racism of Israel’s leaders in their own words. We are putting these quotes and others on ads, which will be displayed in prominent locations such as a billboard in Times Square or in the New York Times. This campaign will link to our website, with additional quotes from prominent Israeli leaders.

If you are like us, you are sick of watching the establishment presidential candidates of both major political parties pandering to the pro-Israel lobby. You are sick of seeing them stumble over each other to blame Palestinians for their own oppression in order to get some of AIPAC’s $80 million annual budget.

But by raising just $60,000 from people like you, we can show hundreds of thousands of Americans what those candidates won’t.

Palestinian Poet Mahmoud Darwish Showcased in Transit Ads

 

Palestine Advocacy Project

 

Dear Supporter,

Palestine Advocacy Project has brought the work of Palestinian National Poet Mahmoud Darwish to San Francisco in a series of posters on SFMTA buses and trains. The selection of poetry includes excerpts from the epic ‘Under Siege’, as a well as shorter, but no less powerful works such as ‘Earth Poem’ and ‘A Lover From Palestine.’

“Darwish captures the dual emotions of homesickness and hope that have defined the past several decades of Palestinian popular art,” said Palestine Advocacy Project Board Member Clare Maxwell, “I think a lot of people in the Bay Area will be able to relate.”

Born in 1941 in British Mandatory Palestine, Darwish survived a childhood marked by war, exile, and political turmoil. These experiences inspired him to write a body of work centered on the fragile idea of a Palestinian homeland. Today, Darwish is considered to be one of the greatest Arab poets of the twentieth century because of the way he expertly mixed political themes with traditional styles.

Selections from seven of Darwish’s most beloved poems will be accessible to commuters on Light Rail trains and MUNI buses in San Francisco throughout the month of March. The posters feature photographs of everyday life in the West Bank, Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.

Palestine Advocacy Project’s complete Mahmoud Darwish poetry campaign is available on our website at www.palestineadvocacyproject.org/darwish.

The Poetry Campaign includes seven excerpts, including the one above. The rest can be viewed at www.palestineadvocacyproject.org/darwish

Dear Supporter,

Advocacy that puts the Palestinian struggle in front of average Americans is a critical component of the movement to end the occupation of Palestine. It helps to challenge the Israel-centric politics that many Americans take for granted, and in doing so, creates opportunities for the hundreds of grassroots organizations that have expanded across the country to grow even further.

This kind of advocacy, however, is only effective when it is persistent. Palestine Advocacy Project is the only organization devoted to running ongoing advertising campaigns in major American cities, and it is the only organization with experience managing massive advertising campaigns simultaneously across the United States.

Doing advertising-based advocacy is expensive, and it is only possible with your continued support. You are the reason we were able to bring our message to so many Americans in 2015. We need your help again in 2016, and we will keep  hope that you will consider contributing to our organization.

Dear Supporter,

As you may have heard, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) decided to ban all political advertising on public transportation following our latest ad campaign. We are obviously disappointed that anti-Palestinian organizations were able to pressure the MBTA into limiting political speech, but we are thrilled that the controversy brought so much attention to our message. We are also excited to share with you how we will be moving forward despite the ban.

Media Coverage:

All of the major Boston papers have covered the story, many of them quite favorably. Google News currently lists more than 160 articles for the search “Palestine Advocacy Project”. Radio Boston also aired a segment on the subject, and local TV stations interviewed our president.

You should also check out this incredible video of our board member, Richard Colbath-Hess, standing up to a mob of anti-Palestinian protesters.

Video of Rick standing up to protesters

Going Forward:

The MBTA’s decision means that we will not be able to run the ads we had planned for December. It does not, however, impact the vast majority of our plans for 2016. Here is a peek at what is coming:

1. We are currently building a great campaign that is not subject to the ban on political ads in most major cities. It features Mahmoud Darwish poetry, and will be the first in a series of ads that will introduce Americans to Palestinians as a distinct people with a rich and unique culture. The media often presents Palestinians as “Israel’s problem”. We want to challenge that.

2. We are nearing completion of a ten-minute animated history of Palestine/Israel. It will be an incredibly useful and much-needed resource for activists trying to educate their friends and families.

3. We are exploring new advertising channels. The Boston Globe and the New York Times called us after the MBTA decision to tell us that they welcome our ads. Both are expensive, but we are analyzing whether they can be effective.

4. We are going to keep fighting for our right to run ads on public transportation. Our lawyers from the ACLU are already looking at the language of the MBTA’s ban and considering ways to fight it.

As you know, the work we do is expensive. We hope you will show your support by donating today. Remember, all of us at PalAD volunteer our time, so every penny you give goes towards our work.

Billboard Truck Partner in Los Angeles Threatened at Gunpoint

Dear supporter of Palestinian Human Rights,

We are emailing to inform you that Palestine Advocacy Project condemns in the strongest terms the armed assault of our advertising partner in Los Angeles.

The advertising company informed the Project on Monday that the attack took place near Ventura Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley. A billboard truck carrying the Project’s ads was stopped at an intersection when the driver of the neighboring car rolled down his window and began yelling profanities. He then pointed a gun at the passenger of the billboard truck.

“We were forced to turn into ongoing traffic coming from the other direction to get away” said the passenger, who works as an account executive for the company. “The car then swerved in front of us to try to block the truck from continuing to drive.”

The account executive, who requested not to be named, said the perpetrator’s vehicle did not have license plates, but that she had given a detailed description to the Los Angeles Police, who suggested that they may be able to identify him from traffic camera footage.

Palestine advocacy project board member Yasmeen Ammus said, ”we couldn’t be more disappointed that someone would threaten one of our partners at gunpoint. We understand that some people disagree with us, but there is simply no excuse for expressing a political opinion through violence and intimidation.”

The advertisements in Los Angeles are part of Palestine Advocacy Project’s current national campaign, which includes hundreds of ads in seven major American cities.

As always, Palestine Advocacy Project relies on your support. If you like our work, please make a donation today.

This is way bigger than anything we have done before.

Palestine Advocacy Project + America

This is way bigger than anything we have done before.

Today, Palestine Advocacy Project launched its first national campaign and a special welcome campaign for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Together, the campaigns cover 7 American cities, 60 subway stations, 52 buses, three billboard trucks, two billboards, and one newspaper. Read about each campaign below, and make sure you follow the links to our website (there are pictures!)

NATIONAL CAMPAIGN

Many of you generously contributed to our Indiegogo campaign last Fall, helping us raise more than $100,000. We promised you we would use your money to bring our ‘One-Word’ campaign to major cities across the United States. That’s exactly what we have done.

The ads in Los Angeles, New York, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington D.C read: ‘Homeless,’ ‘Stolen,’ and ‘Violence,’ referring to Israel’s systematic demolition of Palestinian homes, its violence against Palestinian children, and the ongoing construction of Jewish settlements in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Additional ads in Boston and Washington D.C. highlight Israel’s brutal assault on Gaza last summer.

Check out our first national campaign
WELCOMING NETANYAHU

As many of you know, the Prime Minister of Israel is undertaking a massively controversial visit to Washington D.C. President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry and other senior government officials have refused to meet Netanyahu while he is here. Our campaign therefore highlights the deteriorating relationship between the United States and Israel and the decline in Americans’ support for Israel’s policies.

The ads, which educate Americans about the impact of Israel’s assault on Gaza last summer, emphasize Congress’s use of American tax dollars to support the Israeli military. A mobile billboard will address Netanyahu when he speaks on Capitol Hill and a large banner in the Convention Center Metro station will greet people attending the Annual Conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC).

Check out our campaign welcoming Mr. Netanyahu
