The "Active" Peace Camp

There was a report in Haaretz yesterday that the U.S. administration has become convinced that it would be impossible to freeze West Bank settlement construction.

That came as a shock to Israeli peace activists.

So what did they do?

"The activists quickly handed over to the Americans documents proving the legal system's approval of a settlement freeze, containing High Court of Justice rulings in which the justices rejected petitions filed by settler organizations in a bid to prevent the settlement freeze."

There must be a word to describe that activity.
