Pro-Israel groups have reacted with outrage - and their own plans for an ad campaign - in response to billboards in New York train stations showing the implacable loss of Palestinian land, and creation of millions of refugees, over the last 64 years. But Henry Clifford, 83, says he's puzzled by the charge the ads are "inflammatory."

"They're accusing me of wrongdoing - of trying to inflame something when the fact is their response is more inflammatory than my ads. I don't see how maps that present historical and geographical facts can be called inflammatory or anti-Semitic...They are the facts, and if you notice we don't editorialize. We present the facts, and we let people decide for themselves what the conclusion is."
