Last night I talked to Henry Clifford, the 83-year-old Connecticut man who paid for the smashing ads on New York commuter train platforms that describe the dispossession of Palestinian lands over the last century.
"I've been plowing this field for many years and I am absolutely astounded by the response I've received, and the news coverage," the former financier said. "We've been begging for coverage for years. Now it's pouring in."
He said he had been interviewed by CBS, Fox News, NBC and many radio stations, and the questions were fair ones.
"I have received nothing but positive responses with two exceptions [by email]," said Clifford, whose email address firstname.lastname@example.org, is on the ads. "This has produced an overwhelming response."
