Peace Now presses Olmert on his settlement commitments

Peace Now issued two reports this week on settlements, bringing the issue of Israel's unmet responsibility to freeze settlement construction to the fore.

Peace Now issued two reports this week on settlements, bringing the issue of Israel's unmet responsibility to freeze settlement construction to the fore.

A Peace Now report on Wednesday revealed that a new neighborhood -- comprised of 27 mobile homes -- was being built at the northern West Bank settlement of Eli. The report generated a front page article in Haaretz under the headline, "Despite PM's pledge, Israel still building in West Bank."

A Peace Now report issued today pointed to discriminatory Israeli policies which allow extensive construction in settlements while severely limiting the capacity of Palestinians living under Israeli rule to build new homes.

This report received extensive media coverage by Israel's major papers and around the globe, including by USA Today and the BBC.
