The Coalition Against Racism criticizes the intimidation tactic adopted by the creators of this new campaign from "Commanders for the Security of Israel.” In a statement by the Director of the Coalition, Att. Nidal Othman: "it is a campaign of incitement that treats Arabs as a demographic threat and relies on that as a scare tactic. Unfortunately, this campaign does not promote political equality or peace. The mere fact that it is built on fear of the other will only encourage hate and will cause damage, first to the Jews who strive for peace and then to the victims of racism in general.”
250 people joined the campaign, “Separate from the Palestinians – Now.” The campaign was spread throughout the country, especially in Tel Aviv.
It was revealed that one of the people who joined is former Mossad Director, Shabtai Shavit, as well as Dan Halutz and former chief of police, Assaf Hefetz.
The movement, "Commanders for the Security of Israel,” was established after the Paris Summit.  The goal of the movement is to revive the peace attempts between the Israelis and Palestinians.
The movement posted billboards and newspaper ads in Arabic that state, “Soon We Will Be a Majority,” and a logo that states, "Two People.”
