The strongly settler-supported NU-NRP coalition decided to use self-deprecating humor to try to rally young, secular Israelis to oppose possible future Israeli withdrawals from West Bank settlements. Activists from the parties fanned out through pubs in tony Tel Aviv suburbs in recent days passing out postcards of bearded settlers in yarmulkes, with the caption, "Do you want him to be your neighbor?" The campaign sought to fan fears among secular Israelis that if the settlers are forced to relocate, the middle classes of Tel Aviv could find themselves living beside devoutly religious families with large numbers of children.
