Today I am excited to share with you some good news - news that is encouraging and energizing. I know that you, like me, are subjected to a daily barrage of discouraging news.
For many years, the settlement movement has sought to portray itself as the vanguard of 'real' Zionism. Simultaneously, Peace Now has worked to take back Israeli Zionism, and to show the Israeli public and the Jewish Diaspora that real Zionism is one that represents Jewish values of justice, democracy and peace. In truth, the settlement movement is a small, fanatically ideological movement which threatens Israel's security, prosperity and its viability as a Jewish, democratic state.
