Re: the “controversy” surrounding the King County Metro Bus ads, “Israeli War Crimes – Your tax dollars at work” (TNT, 12-22):
Not all Jews in King County are as thin-skinned as the ones making all the noise. I tend to agree with the premise of the advertisement, but more importantly I believe these individuals have the First Amendment right to express themselves so long as they are not threatening public safety.
Freedom of speech should not be restricted merely because some people may be offended by the content. Contrary to the Anti-Defamation League’s statement, stifling this advertisement will lead to a one-sided representation of the Israel-Palestinian conflict.
