In an advertising campaign organized by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s organization, ‘This World,’ the latest ad calls for the removal of Canadian Professor, William Schabas, as head of a UN Commission to investigate Israeli military retaliation against Gaza, because of his well-known history of anti-Israel bias and close friendship with the Iranian regime.
This World The full page advertising campaign is being launched today with orders being placed with The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post in the United States, and The Guardian and the London Times in Great Britain, as well as many online news outlets.
A copy of the planned ad is available here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/2uzuasy9wp6vzas/AABXF98dLoSuyPda54PPtJsoa
The ad condemns the appointment of Canadian Professor William Schabas to head a United Nations commission to investigate Israel’s operations in Gaza. The ad further details the relationship between Schabas with former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has publicly declared on countless occasions his intention to “wipe Israel off the map.”
The ad follows a similar full-page missive from Rabbi Shmuley and This World: The Values Network over the past few weeks featuring Nobel Peace Laureate Elie Wiesel that called on Hamas to stop using children as human shields in their genocidal war against Israel. The latest ad demands the United Nations remove Schabas and launch human rights investigations against organizations that brutalize innocent Arabs like the government of Syria, ISIS, and Hamas.
The ad calls upon American taxpayers to protest their money being used to fund bogus human rights commissions headed by toadies of Iran with the sole intention of demonizing Israel.
“Schabas remains a steadfast friend of Iran and its genocidal former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, sponsoring conferences in Tehran with organizations tied to the fundamentalist, anti-Semitic regime in Iran that demands the annihilation of Israel,” said Rabbi Shmuley, in the ad. “The UN’s appointment of Schabas is just the most recent symptom of the organization’s well-documented anti-Israel bias.”
The ad goes on to claim: “The UN Gaza commission is a kangaroo court with the sole purpose of demonizing Israel. Schabas frequently says “Israel gets off light” at the UN and claims that Hamas – the genocidal, anti-Semitic tyrant of Gaza, which uses Palestinian children as human shields – is not a terrorist organization at all. In fact, Schabas refuses to say whether he will investigate Hamas’ actions at all.”
