SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Ads are deceptive, destructive

It astounds me that The Daily Iowan keeps printing and accepting money for ads put out by Facts & Logic About the Middle East.

These quarter-page ads are propaganda to justify the land grab by Israel and the dehumanization of the displaced Arab people.

How can you justify taking farmland, homes, and livelihoods, closing schools, separating families by checkpoints and large cement walls, and giving building permits to Israelis only? How do you justify digging deep wells and diverting much-needed water and not permitting Arabs to dig any wells? How do you justify having lush gardens and swimming pools and allowing Arab farms to dry up?

Iowa City is a diverse community. Many doctors and professionals are Arab and live and work right here with us. Why does The Daily Iowan print an ad that is so racist, insulting, and full of lies?

These ads are divisive. Iowans are too educated to be fed such misinformation.
