In this case, the Israeli Jews are being portrayed as the "civilized man" and the Palestinians are being portrayed as the "savages."
Would you feel as strongly about the ad if it said the exact same thing but supported Palestine instead?
I know individuals who are victims from both sides of this conflict, and I always speak up for the victims.
I no more support the removal of Jews from Israel than I support the removal of people of European ancestry from the Americas. It is not realistic. Even just a couple of generations into to occupation, this land is home to those who were born there, and those who have sought refuge there, and those who have invested time and resources into creating communities and infrastructure.
But by portraying the minority group whose ancestors were robbed of their land as "savages" and by capitalizing on existing prejudices against the 1/3 of humanity who practice Islam, this ad promotes hatred and violence.
It was not that long ago that Jews in NYC were frequent victims of discrimination, and often victims of violence related to their Judaism. And it still even happens from time to time. But today in NYC, it is Muslims who are being targeted, and who are frequent victims of hate crimes. As someone who has watched my friends and neighbors and colleagues victimized, I will continue to fight against any efforts to fuel that hatred and put the Muslim community (or people perceived as being members of the Muslim community) at risk.
And I say this as someone of Jewish ancestry, who is portrayed as being among the "civilized" in this particular piece of hate speech.
