What Do You Think?

There is an Israeli commerical ad for Cellcom cell phones being broadcast presently in Israel which has a very big debate going on because of it.  Some say the ad is sweet showing that Israel wants to have peace with it's neighbors and that our soldiers would much rather play ball than have to guard borders.  The other side says that the ad is demeaning to the Arabs because you don't see them in the ad, and that it belittles the middle east conflict, because the security wall is such a strong symbol, and the Arabs are upset about that.  The security wall which protects Israel from terrorist infiltrations is a hated thing by the Arabs.  They say that this ad shows Israelis can play ball near it and turn it into a 'nice' thing and not the 'deplorable' wall that they claim it is.

Watch the ad below.  What do you think?

Here's another ad just for you to get a feel of another Cellcom commerical.  It is saying that families are the most important thing, and they have a family plan for phones, because families need to be able to stay in touch.
