The building of a protest tent at an illegal Israeli outpost in the West Bank drew over two hundred activists
from Combatants for Peace,
a group of Israeli and Palestinian ex-fighters. The action also drew
swift response from the IDF, extensive coverage by Arab media, and no
Israeli or U.S. press. To see video of the protest go here

“We must remember that this conflict is between us and our
Palestinian neighbors, and if we do not continue to remind the Israeli
society and government of this, we will continue to wrongly believe
that if we reach agreements with the Americans everything will be OK.
No! The agreement must be made with the Palestinians."
