Peres family upset he’s become settler icon

The late president Shimon Peres’s family expressed outrage Sunday at the settler movement drafting his image for its new campaign calling for the annexation of Ma’ale Adumim.

The campaign began over the weekend with ads posted on a building overlooking the Menachem Begin Highway in Jerusalem. The ads call for continuing the path of Peres, who helped found Ma’ale Adumim and was quoted saying that developing it was essential to guarantee the defense of Jerusalem.
