Guardian Under Fire for anti Hamas ad

This is the advert the Guardian were paid to run, the Times had previously refused to run the advert stating the
“the opinion being expressed is too strong and too forcefully made and will cause concern amongst a significant number of Times readers.”

But the Guardian decided to press ahead, raising all kinds of concerns of the papers willingness to except money form an issue where thousands of civilians have been killed and injured many of which are children.

People have been targeting the walls and phone lines today voicing their outrage, Callers report being on hold for a long time as phone lines are being tied up and staff becoming quite agitated. Some callers also report being told The Guardian is planning to issue a response to the many complaints shortly. 

Yesterday we appealed for people to take this action and would like to thank everyone taking part xx
