Listen to these people

The following advertisement appears in Haaretz on 12 June and was placed by peace group Gush Shalom:

OBAMA SAYS:

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!
