  • Description

    Israeli settlers on the occupied West Bank met on Tuesday (27 December) to protest over their government's peace plan. The settlers, many of them members of the Jewish untra-nationalist gush Emunim movement, claim the proposals could lead to Israeli withdrawal from the area.

    SYNOPSIS: The meeting was to Offra near Ramallah on the West Bank. The militant settlers, who say that the West Bank historically belongs to the Jews, signed a document giving their support for any action which would forestall the latest peace proposals.

    Speakers made it clear that compromise was out of the question. One was reported as saying that no United Nations flag or Egyptian flag would be allowed to fly over the area. He was said to have added: "If we have to shoot, we will shoot". Afterwards, Likud Party member Moshe Shamir explained his opposition.
