Occupied Palestine (QNN)- The mayor of Tel Aviv Ron Huldai on Friday ordered the removal of highway billboards that call for the surrender at gunpoint of Palestinian leaders for the sake of peace.
“Peace is made ONLY with defeated enemies,” said the billboards, which showed photoshopped images of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh, blindfolded and supplicating in a war-zone as helicopters hover.
It was not clear who sponsored the billboards around Tel Aviv, Israel’s commercial capital, or if the campaign was meant to help the right-wing in the next national election.
Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai said in a statement that the billboards would be removed, saying that their image “incites violence and recalls the actions of ISIS and the Nazis – whom we do not want to be counted among”.
“Even in election season, there are red lines,” he said.
