(JNS.org) Amid its pro-Israel advertising campaign to
counter anti-Israel ads in San Francisco’s Muni bus system this month, the
pro-Israel education group StandWithUs announced July 10 that it would place similar
billboards in Montana.

The
StandWithUs ads in Montana’s capital of Helena will counter recent billboards
in the city that questioned U.S. support for Israel. The ads, one to go up July
15 and the other July 22, each for a four-week period, will promote “the decades-long Israel-US
relationship” as well as “Israel’s
diversity and religious freedoms,” StandWithUs said in a press release.

StandWithUs
also countered anti-Israel ads in Montana this March, in Missoula. Its June
27-July 27 ad campaign on San Francisco buses marks the sixth time it has
countered anti-Israel ads in that city.

“StandWithUs has
countered anti-Israel ads placed throughout the United States since 2007
and will continue to do so. We cannot let hostile messages, with their
deceptive, velvet-gloved rhetoric, influence unsuspecting commuters. We
will continue to stress Israel’s contributions to the world and the advantages
of a strong U.S.-Israel relationship,” StandWithUs CEO Roz Rothstein said.
