Our pro-Israel bus ad is up and running in Washington, D.C., and the mainstream media is howling — which means we’re hitting the target.

And of course, cynical Islamic supremacists such as the execrable Qasim Rashid are actually implying that the ads are pro-Hitler. (He published a cravenly deceptive piece in Time Magazine claiming that Islamic Jew-hatred is not in the Qur’an; we’ll be replying soon).
Pamela Geller, my colleague and the creator of the ads, has several posts about the media coverage, and the lengths to which a clearly frightened media is going to defame us and obscure our message:
