Washington Post: don't allow hate and Islamophobia in your paper

IMG_9659.jpgOn Sunday March 24, 2019 edition of the Washington Post included a deplorable full-page ad falsely accusing Representative Ilhan Omar of anti-semitism. It intentionally misleads readers to believe Rep. Omar made statements she never uttered.

Send a message now to the Washington Post telling them that as a leading U.S. newspaper, they have an obligation not to participate in smear campaigns and incitements to hatred and Islamophobia. Ask the Washington Post to apologize to Rep. Omar and the Muslim community and commit to not selling misleading and hateful ads.

Sign our letter to the Washington Post!

Dear Washington Post:

I was extremely dismayed to see you print Rabbi Shmuley’s misleading and Islamophobic ad smearing Representative Ilhan Omar and inciting hatred against Muslims.

The ad begins with the words “Jews control the world with their money” next to Rep. Omar’s face, giving the false impression she said that. She did not.

Spreading Islamophobia and hatred is dangerous. The New Zealand mosque massacre just took the lives of 50 people and Rep. Omar is already facing serious death threats. Printing this ad contributes to the dangers the congresswoman and the world Muslim community face.

Please apologize to Rep. Omar and the Muslim community and commit to no longer selling space in your paper for ads that propagate any form of hatred.

    israel is a failed state. It is run by racist and nationalistic Zionist. Jews living in israel support Trump 77% while US Jews approve of Trump by only 30%. Why don’t you report israel’s three largest banks Mizrahi Tefahot, Leumi and Hapolaim, payed hundreds of millions in fines for helping US citizens evade taxes, now that’s a story. Rep. Ilham Omar hasn’t been fooled and neither are we; israel controls the status quo and made Trump our first Zionist president.

    While the Washington Post polarizes against Trump sporting the crown of “liberal media” it shows it’s right-wing colors with this latest ad, not to mention its recent biased reporting on Venezuela. I cannot forget WP support for the 2003 Iraq invasion. The polarized “liberal media” title enables complete disregard for left politics.
