Letter to the Editor

DI ads a disgrace

The Daily Iowan has printed many ads by a pro-Israeli organization called “Facts and Logic About the Middle East.

Oddly enough, after running a letter to the editor calling out these ads as racist propaganda, the DI decided to continue running them.

A December ad praises Israel, even calling it “A Light unto the Nations.” These ads are disgusting and ridiculously racist, and the DI is only supporting and perpetuating these sorts of attitudes.

“Facts and Logic” can make all the propaganda material it wants, but the Muslim community is not responsible for the so-called dislike of Israeli policies.

As long as a country has discriminatory marriage laws and denies basic commodities to legal Bedouin communities, the international community will always hold that nation legally accountable. These ads are pure propaganda, and I think the DI should be ashamed that it runs them just to get funding.
