      Peace Now "Peacefully" Defaces National Union Poster


      Don't you just love the way our lefties, especially Peace Now, portray themselves has the paragon of public virtue and morality?

      Well, I spotted this this morning at Emeq Refaim:

      That's a National Union elections poster covered up by a Peace Now sticker which 'warns' the voters that Israel seems to be "breaking right" and there's a danger of "connecting with racism".  Another sticker had the slogan "we're disconnecting from the world".  Many more Peace Now stickers were around.

      The irony is that the Emeq Refaim neighborhood of Bak'a and German Colony and Old Katamon are mostly former Arab homes that were abandoned in 1948 and now are demographically liberal, trendy lefty and bohemian Jewish, all of whom preach evacuating "conquered territories" that have been "settled" under an "occupation".

      Little do they realize that the joke is on them.
