Beginning in late May, strap-hangers in Washington, D.C., were greeted by the image of Adolf Hitler during their morning commutes, thanks to a controversial new propaganda campaign that plastered a photograph of the Nazi leader onto the sides of 20 buses in our nation's capital. The anti-Muslim advertising was created by Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), which is also known as the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), an American far right-wing,anti-Islamist, anti-Muslim, and Islamophobic organization led by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) lists SIOA as a hate group.
The 15-foot posters present Hitler talking to Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, who teamed up with the Nazis in an attempt to try to drive Jews out of Palestine. According to the Washington Post, Al-Hesseini once supported Hitler’s policy of exterminating the Jews. The propaganda was created in response to the below ad
The ad reads, “We’re sweating April 15 so Israelies don’t have to! Stop US aid to Israel’s occupation!” the ads read. Geller called the pro-Palestine group's campaign “Jew-hating.” The American Muslims for Palestine spokesperson said that her organization doesn’t usually react to Pamela Geller. “This is the kind of thing she does, countering political speech with racist, Islamophobic speech,” Kristin Szremski said.
The above American Muslims for Palestine ad refers to the fact that the U.S. gives $3 billion in aid to Israel every year. This money is provided by U.S. taxpayers. A careful look at the image and copy does not reveal any "anti-Semitism" to this author. Calling the ad "anti-Semitic" is actually quite laughable. It is common, of course, for any criticism of Israel to be greeted with cries of "Jew-hating" or "anti-Semitism." And, of course, the Holocaust is usually brought up to show that any criticism of Israel will bring about another Holocaust. It is meant to silence all critics of Israel and negate the First Amendment right of Freedom of Speech. But it is just a pathetic Zionist version of "crying wolf."
