The YESHA Council, the governing body of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, has taken to Haaretz newspaper to promote their cause. Haaretz, known for its negative editorial policy against such communities, printed a front-page ad in its Hebrew and English editions on Sunday and Monday respectively. The YESHA Council's Chief Foreign Envoy stated, "we want the world to know that the residents of our communities in Judea and Samaria are an integral part of the Israeli electorate. The Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria are here to stay and we will not bend to any demands to put the lives of 372,000 Israeli men, women and children on hold."
