Tell Facebook to take down AIPAC’s racist, hateful ads against women of color in Congress. Stand with Omar, AOC, Tlaib, and Bush!
The American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is at it again, inciting Islamophobia and endangering the lives of women of color in Congress.
The pro-Israel lobby group has taken out a series of paid ads on Facebook accusing lawmakers Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Cori Bush, and Rashida Tlaib of lying about Israel by using the words “apartheid,” “act of terrorism” and “ethnic cleansing.” The ad attacking Ilhan Omar baselessly links her, a Muslim-American, to terrorism. It’s textbook Islamophobia!
Ilhan’s communications director, Jeremy Slevin, responded to the ads by tweeting that “the language AIPAC uses in paid ads to smear and vilify [Omar] is virtually identical to the language used in death threats she gets.” Rashida Tlaib tweeted “I am so sick of this shit.”
Tlaib, Omar, AOC, and Bush aren’t the only members of Congress putting their necks on the line to support freedom and dignity for Palestinians. Mark Pocan was working on the issue before members of the squad were in Congress and Betty McCollum is behind legislation to condition aid to Israel so that it doesn’t support the abuse of Palestinian children. But, as Pocan pointed out, he and McCollum are not so viciously attacked because they are white while Tlaib, Omar, AOC, and Bush are women of color.
Sign our petition to Facebook telling them to remove AIPAC’s hateful, racist, and dangerous ads. Then go to AIPAC’s “ad library” and report the ads for endangering the lives of sitting members of Congress.
AIPAC captioned their ads “stop the lies,” “stop the hate,” and “work for peace.” We agree and that’s why we oppose AIPAC and support Omar, Tlaib, AOC, and Bush.
