Separation Fence Controversy: Cellcom gets people talking

Israeli wireless provider, Cellcom, is under fire for a new ad showing Israeli soldiers playing soccer with unseen Palestinians across the security/separation fence/wall.

While those on the left are calling the ad a white-washing of the effects of the wall on Palestinians, other have said that the ad shows that everyone has the same desires to engage in leisure activities.

Either way, it is another indicator that the conflict is front and center in Israeli society, even when it comes to choosing a cell phone provider.

What is your take on the video?
