Peace Now: Buy from 'Peace Authors'

The leftist Peace Now organization is calling on the tens of thousands who come to Book Week fairs to buy works written by authors who oppose the Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria and want to see the establishment of a Palestinian Authority state. The organization is passing out bookmarks featuring those authors and why their works should be bought.

One of the featured authors is Amos Oz and a quotation, "The continued Israeli occupation of the Palestinian population in the West Bank is immoral and corrupting the Jewish state." Another is Yochi Brandess, featured on Facebook, who is quoted as saying, "You can be a supporter of peace and a proud Zionist, also to struggle for the rights of Palestinians and to love our own people, even to protest against the Israeli government, which is dissolving the chances for peace, and to support an uncompromising fight against terrorism."
