The Peace Now movement launched a new campaign on Tuesday, calling on Israelis to push for a freeze on settlement construction. The campaign focuses around the slogan: "Settlements are not Obama's problem, not the world's problem, but your problem." At a press conference held in Jerusalem Tuesday morning, Peace Now chair Yariv Oppenheimer said, "The Israeli public has been brainwashed, first by the Labor party, and then by Kadima, Likud and obviously the right-wing parties, that settlement building is in the nation's interest." "We want to remind the Israeli public that settlements are a fundamental obstacle to reaching a two-state solution," he went on.
