Anti-settlement ads removed from Danish buses

An offensive anti-Israeli campaign was posted on buses in Denmark, and has thankfully been ceased:
COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Copenhagen’s public transport agency on Thursday ordered the immediate removal of posters opposing Israeli settlements on the capital’s city buses after getting “a considerable amount of complaints.”

Movia, owned by eastern Denmark local authorities, said the campaign by the Danish Palestinian Friendship Association was “unnecessarily offensive.”

The campaign that started Monday was calling for labels on goods produced in Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

“Our conscience is clean. We neither buy products from the Israeli settlements nor invest in the occupation industry,” the advertisement text read next to photos of two women only identified by their first names.

The company that runs the bus routes must remove the advertisements immediately from the 35 vehicles that displayed the posters, said the agency that is in charge of buses in Copenhagen.

“We got somewhere between 75 and 100 complaints, most of them in English,” Movia spokeswoman Camilla Struckmann told The Associated Press.
Whatever the language of the complainants, objecting was the right thing to do.
