Gush Shalom on Sunday wrote to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in response to the Dutch government's cancellation of a planned tour of Israeli council heads in the Netherlands due to the participation of representatives from settlements in the West Bank.

"The Dutch decision is an unmistakable warning sign, written on the wall. It is but a small sample of what we can expect should you give in to the pressure of the settlers and their helpers and decide next week to resume settlement construction in the occupied territories," Gush Shalom told the prime minister.

"The Netherlands is known for a deep friendship toward Israel over the years, but neither the Netherlands nor any of Israel's other friends would ever agree to the existence of settlements in Occupied Territory."
