Glick (and Friends) vs. Olmert's Plan

The Center for Security ad against convergence, er, dimunition.

What ad?


(Washington, D.C.): The Center for Security Policy today began a television advertising campaign concerning Israel's proposed surrender of most of the West Bank and parts of Jerusalem to terrorists like al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. The ad recalls the consequences for Israel and for U.S. interests of previous Israeli retreats from southern Lebanon and the Gaza Strip, and urges Americans' representatives in Washington to oppose further territorial concessions to our enemies.

The Center's ad campaign is timed to coincide with the visit to Washington next week by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Mr. Olmert will be pitching his so-called "Convergence Plan" for the West Bank to President Bush in an Oval Office meeting on Tuesday. Among other activities during his U.S. visit, he will also be holding meetings at the Pentagon on Monday and addressing a joint session of Congress on Wednesday.

The ad draws on an analysis of the convergence plan authored by the Center's Senior Mideast Fellow, Caroline Glick. A summary of its main findings can be found by clicking here. Ms. Glick is also the Deputy Managing Editor of and a columnist for the Jerusalem Post.

Super. The counter-campaign begins, and good luck to the demo organized by Buddy.
