Peace Now ‘Proud’ of Getting America Involved

Yariv Oppenheimer, the head of the far-left Peace Now organization, has expressed satisfaction over his group’s success in torpedoing an Israeli initiative to allow Jews to build new homes in Judea and Samaria (Shomron). The Palestinian Authority (PA) claims the regions as Arab land, and has said that it sees Jewish construction as an obstacle to diplomatic talks.
