Subway station billboard battle is latest flareup in Israeli-Palestinian conflict

"This is a highly political campaign with a controversial underlying anti-Israel message," Councilman Lewis Fidler (D-Brooklyn) wrote MTA President Thomas Prendergast.

"I would urge you to disallow and/or remove these advertisements."

The group behind the ads, the Westchester County-based WESPAC Foundation, said the subway spots are intended to encourage dialog and not dissension.

"If the councilman thinks they're anti-Israeli, he should say why," said Felice Gelman, a member of the group. "I have family in Israel. They deserve peace. And U.S. policies are not helping."
