When Peace Now released a report last week charging that 40 percent of Jewish settlement territory in the West Bank is built on privately owned Palestinian land, the reportís co-author said she hoped it would serve as a wake-up call to principled Israelis.

Hagit Ofran, the granddaughter of famed Israeli philosopher Yeshayahu Leibowitz and the product of a religiously observant family, said she wanted the findings ó aimed as much at the settlers themselves as at the outside world ó to present an acute moral dilemma to the decent people who live on what she argues is essentially stolen property.

In a few cases, she said, that has happened.
