Correcting Israel Propaganda at Civic Center
by Anonymous

The most recent BART posters by the Zionist propaganda arm Stand With Us were targeted for some guerrilla truth-telling over the weekend.

The original reads:
"Israeli-Developed AIDS Treatment
Targets HIV Without
Affecting Healthy Cells

Israel Saves Lives"

The revised version reads:

"Israeli-Developed Apartheid
Targets Homes Without
Affecting Profits

Israel Destroys Lives"

The corrected version refers to Israeli policy of demolishing Palestinian homes and confiscating farm land to build settlements and walls in defiance of international law. The Stand With Us campaign is explicitly designed to distract Bay Area residents and visitors from Israel's ongoing human rights violations.

Vandals distorting a banner is not correction.

Underhanded conservative tactics, like erroneously designating a modification of existing propaganda as vandalism, do not constitute "correction" either. Conservatives are fond of these type of ad hominem attacks. Instead of an ad hominem attack trying to falsely paint culture-jammers as those involved in the wanton destruction of property, I would like to offer the example set by Israel in the theft and destruction of Palestinian property as a reproof.

The original was back the next day (Or was the posted picture photo-shopped and the original never actually changed?)
