Mesika: Peace Now Video Distorts Reality


Samaria Council Chairman Gershon Mesika responds to the Peace Now video accusing the government of over-funding Jewish towns in Yesha, "This is a distortion of reality. Most government funding is necessary to address recent security needs that only became an issue since the reprehensible Oslo Accords, promoted avidly by Peace Now."

Mesika adds, "The actual discrimination is, on the contrary, aimed squarely at Yesha towns, with far more funds allocated to Kibbutzim and Moshavim in the periphery. We recommend Peace Now be constructive and favorable, instead of divisive and slanderous."
