IDF Commander To Soldiers: ‘Nobody Opens Fire At Jews!’

Monday, January 16th, 2012

A Golani commander instructed his battalion that under no circumstance may they fire at Jews in the event of a clash with activists in Judea and Samaria.

“We’re in for a rocky Saturday, so stay alert,” the commander told soldiers. “In any case, no matter what happens, let the world burn down for all I care, nobody opens fire at Jews! We don’t want a civil war.”

These comments come after the vandalism of the Ephraim Brigade base last month, and in the wake of statements by former Defense Minister Binyamin Ben Eliezer in which he advocated firing on anyone who threatens the lives of IDF soldiers, irrespective of religion and citizenship.

5 Activists Indicted for IDF Base Attack

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

The Jerusalem District Prosecutor submitted an official indictment against five pro-settlement activists on Sunday, charging them with tracking and disrupting the movements of IDF forces on route to evacuating outposts, collecting classified military material, and coordinating the attack on the Ephraim Brigade base that took place on December 13, 2011.

According to the indictment, the activists had set up a network of approximately 30 sources who furnished information on intended troop movements and logistics. Some of the information they received allegedly came from IDF soldiers.

Further investigation has revealed that Likud MK Ze’ev Elkin provided information to the activists about which outposts would be evacuated by army forces. When questioned, Elkin said that he only attempted to prevent a confrontation and that he did not disclose details about IDF operations.
