An international organization called StandWithUs plans to run pro-Israel advertisements in Vancouver SkyTrain stations.
A post on the group’s website states that the campaign aims to “counter the misinformation of anti-Israel posters currently at these sites and on buses in Vancouver”.
On August 27, a group called the Palestine Awareness Coalition began running ads in TransLink stations and on buses. Those posters detail the “Israel’s steady absorption of Palestinian territory from 1946 to the present day”, according to the group’s website.
StandWithUs describes its ad as depicting “Jewish loss of land from Biblical times to the present by juxtaposing a map of the ancient Jewish kingdom circa 1000 BCE, a map of the land designated as the Jewish homeland by the League of Nations in 1920, and a map of the much smaller Israel of today”.
“In reality, it is the Jewish state that has steadily gotten smaller,” the organization’s website states.
The ads are scheduled to run from October 14 to November 14, 2013.
