The following advertisement appears in Haaretz on 12 June and was placed by peace group Gush Shalom:
All building activity in the settlements must cease forthwith!
OBAMA IS RIGHT!
There are no legal settlements!
All the settlements sit on stolen land!
There is no difference between “private” Arab land and the land reserves of the villages, which are called “government land”!
All the settlements were set up with the money of the Israeli tax-payers!
The “natural increase” of the settlements must settle in Israel!
Fair compensation should be paid to settlers who are ready to return home voluntarily!
Every settlement is a land mine on the road to peace!
