An anti-Israel advertising campaign on city buses in Seattle, Washington was rejected on Thursday, according to the StandWithUs organization.

The "Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign" which was set to begin December 27, was rejected by King County Executive Dow Constantine due to the "potential for disruption to transit service."Constantine on Thursday approved an interim policy from Metro Transit which called for a "halt to the acceptance of any new non-commercial advertising on King County buses."



On Wednesday, Seattle Jewish community leaders held a meeting with senior officials from the King County Executive's office and Metro Transit management about the "potential threat to the Seattle-area Jewish community" after over 2,000 emails, and numerous organizations announced that counter advertisements would be initiated to promote Israel.
