David Harris, you should be ashamed of yourself. Take a look at this ad campaign the AJC has rolled out attacking Iran in the most brutal, disgusting and sleaziest manner possible. And if you have the guts to watch the video all the way through (I can’t possible embed it here since it is essentially anti-Iranian pornography) note the bodies of Iranian women wriggling as they hang after being executed allegedly for adultery. It’s just lovely. I’d like to know which ad agency created this busha und cherpah for the AJC. Both of them should be hung by their finger nails in the Jewish Hall of Shame.
Oh and since we’re talking about smearing Iran should we dust off all the images of dead and maimed Lebanese and Gazan children from Israel’s last two murderous wars against its Arab neighbors? They’re plastered all over pro-Palestinian websites. They’re no less political porn than the Iranian images are, and they shed as much light on substantive issues as the latter do.
Yes, of course Ahmadinejad walked right into this one with his eyes open. What does Iran expect when they have such a putz calling the Holocaust a lie a few days before leaving for the General Assembly meeting in New York? But actually, I think the Iranian hardliners welcome this sort of reception from parts of the American Jewish community. The Ahmadinejads are just as pugnacious, just as hateful, just as capable of punching below the belt as the Israeli and American Jewish smearmeisters. They were made for each other. I just wish we could lock up ten of their worst hardliners with ten of Israel and American Jewry’s worst hardliners in a room and throw away the key. With any luck, none of them would make it out alive and the world would be a slightly better place for it.
Unfortunately, that’s not possible. So it’s left to reasonable, pragmatic members of the Jewish community to make a geshrei and hope that there will be an element of shame or conscience on the part of the AJC which might be appealed to. Stop this atrocious charade you’re playing. This is not a Madison Avenue ad campaign. It’s not even a Republican presidential campaign. Ads like this inch Iran, Israel and the U.S. closer to armed confrontation. People will die. I only wish it could be David Harris on the frontline or one of his children. Then, we might hear a different ad from these smearmongers.
Every so often a few of my worst detractors tsk-tsk about my “anger” as if this somehow disqualifies my writing as balanced or fair. When I read scummery like this you bet I’m mad, hopping mad. And anyone who isn’t either doesn’t have a head or doesn’t have a heart (or maybe a conscience).
Note which country isn’t mentioned at all in this ad? Israel, of course. The fact that the AJC is carrying water for Israel and attempting to manipulate U.S. policy in that country’s interests is completely absent.
Ori Nir sent this ad to me. I replied saying he was a “bloggers’ best friend.”
