American Muslims for Palestine Plan Twitter Onslaught

In the absence of any real progress, there's always Twitter. Although Code Pink was unable to muster more than 2 dozen activists for their  recent AIPAC protest, they were able to make a splash on Twitter via the use of paid spammers.

No one shows up to their press conferences anymore, so the American Muslims for Palestine may have something similar in mind. To publicize their new Washington DC anti-Israel bus ad,  they are taking to Twitter.

According to the ADL, the American Muslim's for Palestine's political agenda  promotes extreme anti-Israel views and has at times provided a platform for anti-Semitism under the guise of educating Americans about "the just cause of Palestine and the rights of self-determination."

From their website:
