As noted in Gateway Pundit and The Blaze, anti-Israeli signs are rolling through the streets of Seattle, Washington. Purchased by the pro-Hamas group, Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign, they say, "Israeli War Crimes, Your Tax Dollars at Work." The text accompanies a photo of a bombed building.

About its Ed Mast (the "bearded Marxist" in the video, as one might suppose by his position on the issue; just consider the facial hair, the thoughtful effeteness, and as John Lennon might remind, "Imagine" the wire rimmed glasses, merely added flairs) according to the Seatle Times:
"The ads are to raise awareness that our tax dollars are being spent in one-sided support of the state of Israel and particularly of those policies of Israel that violate human rights and maintain the bad situation, which is that one people has power over another," said Ed Mast, spokesman for the group sponsoring the ad. "We're all committed to the simplest of solutions, which is equal rights."Perhaps along with Christmas standards now being heard, such as "I'll be Home for Christmas," does it make you nostalgic for mid-Twentieth Century times?
Mast is a Seattle playwright and longtime activist against U.S. military involvement in Israel and Iraq.

During that Twentieth Century, anti-Israel jihadists of the Mideast were trained by Nazis (and Russian Communists, alternately) and the movement continues, as the undead simply do.
The Seattle official says, "We can't reject it, based on any of the reasons we have established. over the thirty-six years we have been accepting advertising." Now, the Gulag is all for Freedom of Speech, but what if the buses carried pictures of the results of the slaughter of innocent children in the womb, or warned that homosexual sex is immoral and on numerous levels, destructive to both individuals and families?
You get the picture.

Seattle Times (today):
Proposed bus ads respond to ‘Israeli war crimes’ ad
“Amid a furor over an upcoming Metro bus ad alleging “Israeli war crimes,” two groups said Tuesday they intend to run their own ads that portray Israel as a victim of terrorism.
Conservative writer David Horowitz said his Los Angeles-based David Horowitz Freedom Center has submitted an ad to Metro Transit that shows a burning Israeli bus next to the words “Palestinian war crimes your tax dollars at work.””
Does anyone know who is behind the Seattle Mideast Awareness Group beside the Ed Mast guy? They seem to be aligned with the Palestinian Solidarity Committee:
They can all rally around the statue of Lenin in Seattle.
"Ah - Can't - HEAR - You!"
I hate haters.
Yet if the same Jewish people are offended by a Christmas tree, the socialists attempting to destroy this country will provide their complaints great solicitude.
HE IS NOW.......
