(PHOTO) Outrage Over An Anti-Israel Billboard Popping Up Around DetroitDetroit_Downtown_Sports_Zone_2013
A New York based group named “Deir Yassin Remembered,” is posting billboards across the metro-Detroit area that is causing outrage among their sizable jewish population.
The billboard reads “America First Not Israel.” Detroit is home to one of the largest muslim populations in the U.S., so it’s no surprise that this group picked this location.
Here is the billboard:
The billboard is attempting to drive a wedge between the American people and Israel but they aren’t falling for it, so it appears.
From the Jerusalem Post:
A billboard in the Michigan city of Detroit that reads “America First Not Israel” is arousing accusations anti-Semitism.
The large sign, placed on the city’s 8 Mile Road, was paid for by “Deir Yassin Remembered,” a New York-based organization that has been posting similar signs throughout the country.
Although the metro-Detroit area has one of the largest Arab populations outside the Middle East, as well as a sizable Jewish community, the sign was placed in a part of the city that is neither predominantly Jewish nor Muslim.
