Tell BART to Take Down Anti-Palestine Ads

This petition had 310 supporters

The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) transit district is fueling a political ad war between pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian organizations.

Last month, BART took down political ads at train stations that said "Stop Palestinian terrorism." This month, Stand With Us, the pro-Israel organization came back with a "Stop Palestinian Leadership From Preaching Hate and Violence" ad. An offended member took a snapshot yesterday morning.

Fueling a political ad war between two different ethnic groups is inappropriate and offensive to the Bay Area community that prides itself on tolerance and diversity. It is also against BART policy to entertain disparaging ads targeting certain groups and BART reserves the right to take them down at any time. It must exercise that right in this instance.
