Pro-Palestinian Groups Seethe at Stanford
Pro-Palestinian groups at Stanford are whining, seething, and screaming “racism!” because of advertisements placed in the student newspaper, telling the plain truth about Palestinian death cult society: Ads spark controversy throughout campus.
A group of students began circulating an e-mail petition yesterday asking for the recall of Daily Editor in Chief Ramin Setoodeh, after The Daily decided to continue running a series of controversial advertisements from a pro-Israeli group.
The ads, which have run in many college newspapers nationwide, have attracted campus attention over the past two weeks for claims some students say are anti-Palestinian. One ad depicts Israelis lighting candles in remembrance of Sept. 11 victims, under the words, “On September 11, 2001, Israelis mourned in Tel-Aviv.” Next to it is a photo showing Palestinian men and children cheering, beneath the text, “On September 11, 2001, Palestinians celebrated in Lebanon.”
Each of the ads claim, “There are two sides to every story, but only one truth.”
“The advertisement suggests that all Palestinians are inhumane and they revel in the shedding of innocent blood,” wrote the group, called the Coalition for Justice, in a letter that members of the Stanford community signed.
