Cleveland Gas Station Features Grotesque Anti-Semitic Images
Algemeiner ^ | June 4, 2014

Posted on 06/05/2014 4:31:11 AM PDT by SJackson

JNS.org – A Cleveland gas station owned by a Palestinian American is drawing attention for a series of grotesque anti-Israel and anti-Semitic murals featured on its walls.

The gas station and convenience store called Biggie’s, located on East 55th Street and Cedar Ave in Cleveland, is owned by Palestinian-American Brahim “Abe” Ayad, who has been the target of criticism for several years due to the hateful images, the Cleveland Jewish News reported.

One of the most offensive images is that of a so-called “Talmudic Priest” wearing a yarmulke while circumcising an infant with his teeth, accompanied by the words “sex with minors permitted.”

In a recent interview with Cleveland’s Action News 19, Ayad said he was actually disturbed by the image, even though he allowed it to be painted on his gas station’s wall.

“Yes, I am—actually, I am very—but that is all I have to say,” Ayad said.

The gas station also sits across the street from George Washington Carver elementary school, where one of the murals can be clearly seen from the playground, Action News 19 reported.

According to additional images posted by the Elder of Ziyon blog, the other pictures blame Israel for the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, and accuse Jews of “killing Jesus” and of controlling American foreign policy.

Hadn’t thought of that. I doubt artistic images would be covered, but I could be wrong. I’ve read that computer “aging” software is used to make legal age “actress’” look much younger, and that that’s legal.

Obviously this will not be called a hate crime, because the authorities are complicit in the elimination of Judaism and Christianity.

I love this gas station and what it stands for, liberty. He is able to put out his message for all to see. While we may disagree with what he says he has the right to say it.

If they nod in agreement then they already believe the crap anyway.

Besides, democrats support this view, a lot of Jews in America support democrats with both money and votes, so I think they are reaping the harvest they have sown. When it gets really bad they will whine for conservatives to save them, and we shouldn’t.

I guess all whites are responsible for slavery, too.

Or is it just Jewish people who are universally responsible for the actions of some of their people?

Under the First Amendment they can get away with it anywhere. And as repulsive as that is, I would not try to monkey with it. No sooner would we give Government the tools than they'd be turned on us instead.

Why the hell are you suggesting I want the government to crack down on free speech and the First Amendment? I AM suggesting that local business leaders, the Jewish community of Cincinnati and ordinary, decent people create a little blowback for these freaks, OK? Sheesh.

I thought that those people were already creating blowback.
I cannot imagine that anybody actually WANTS this stuff in their city.

Yes, First Amendment aside, I suspect there are people like the JDL who are more than capable of handling this.

That’s how the Libs do it though. They use examples of repulsive speech to guilt us into considering regulating speech. Then they turn the gun on us.

Anyone with any sense of decency should boycott the Pali gas station and convenience store. More exposure of this sleazy operation hopefully will hurt its business to such an extent that the owner will feel the pain in his bank account.

BTW, wasn't it in Cleveland in 2012 where an anti voting fraud billboard was taken down after leftist protests? Apparently, public signs and messages in accordance with the sensibilities of leftist radicals - no matter how obscene to others - are fine in Cleveland, while public signs and messages that merely express ideas that run counter to their program can't see the light of day for long.

Add in the fact that a few Cleveland precincts reported ZERO votes for Romney in the 2012 election, and you can see that Cleveland is rapidly moving toward Third World status.

Agreed, except we're talking about Cleveland, NOT Cincinnati.

There's a lot of other stuff that's taken place in Cleveland in the last few years that should raise some red flags (pardon the pun), including:

The ZERO votes for Romney reported in several election precincts in 2012.

During the 2012 election campaign, a billboard was put up in Cleveland by an anti-voting fraud group, warning voters that it was illegal to vote more than once. The billboard quickly came down or was replaced, apparently because it was "politically incorrect."

The mistake by the lake.

I fully support this delusional scumbag’s freedom of speech, but I hope he goes out of business.

I don’t know if he will though, the area is crap, based on his joe camel image I’m guessing he sells cigarettes, if he sells beer and hooch and lotto tickets too then he will have customers.

1)”“When it gets really bad they will whine for conservatives to save them, and we shouldn’t.”

2) I guess all whites are responsible for slavery, too.

3) Or is it just Jewish people who are universally responsible for the actions of some of their people?”

1. Those unwilling to defend themselves, or those who tried to disarm others, are usually commies wanting to make America and Americans vulnerable. Libtard Jews (the majority of the Jewish population is Democrat) have a long history of supporting gun-grabbers. With the cost of ammo rising, why waste good ammo saving anyone who wanted you disarmed?
2. Non-sequitur.
3. Jews are as responsible for the acts of some Jews as blacks are for the acts of some blacks. However, when societal breakdown occurs, profiling will occur.

Just sayin’.

I'm angry that the Jewish and Black community leaders aren't out in from of that place with protest signs every day, stating, "Boycott the Hate."

Not just angry, but also VERY disappointed with the so called "Jewish Community" leaders. Black "leaders" may not be interested if they agree with the "art" deep down.

It's important that the First Amendment be upheld, and the government NOT crack down on them. On the other hand, the First Amendment protects people against a government crack down, but NOT against the public's decision not to do business with these a$$hats. Just as this a$$hat has the right to "speak his "mind," so does the community, and I'd LOVE to see him go out of business for lack of customers.

I'm a strong believer in "freedom of speech," especially the nasty type. It's better to be able to see your enemies, then allow them to fester in private.

Then again, a leftist should be able to charge this scumbag with a hate-crime and public nuisance, especially if it is across the street from an elementary school.

But you'd have to find a leftist who didn't hate Jews, and that's pretty hard to find.

I think you just put your finger on the real problem. I know it's considered a taboo to say this in some circles, but the truth is, statistically speaking, the most anti-Semitic ethnic-religious-cultural demographic in the US are Arab Moslems, followed in second place by African-Americans.

Here, an Arab-Moslem anti-Semite is taking advantage of the fact that, in a predominantly black neighborhood, (some) "Black leaders may not be interested."
