Reporting Reality on Israeli Settlements

By R Barrett


Dear editor:

According to June's findings by Mina Zemach, Israel's foremost pollster, 63% of Israelis are in favor of "unilateral withdrawal" from the occupied territories. In fact, 69% call for the evacuation of "all" or "most of" the settlements.

Mina's numbers are corroborated by other research institutions: The Peace Index of Tel-Aviv University's Tami Steinmetz Center found that 65% of Israelis "are prepared to evacuate the settlements under a unilateral separation program".

A poll commissioned by Peace Now a month earlier revealed that 59% of Israelis support immediate evacuation of most settlements, followed by a unilateral withdrawal of the army from the occupied territories."

I urge you to publish these facts. You should let the world know that both Israelis and Palestinians are ready to give up on the occupation -- they are sick of the endless bloodshed, the ongoing grief and pain. It is time for peace.

I urge you to stop pumping out government propaganda and start telling the truth: the people of Palestine and their Israeli brethren are tired of war. They want justice, they want brotherhood, they want peace.

Get busy. Do your job. Report reality.

Thank you.
