A small group of settler youths penetrated the army’s Efraim base near Kalkilya in a weak attempt to settle scores. The settlers thus ‘warned’ the army not to proceed with the expected demolition of their homes in Mitzpe Yitzhak and Ramat Gilad hamlets.
The reaction of the Israeli establishment was hysterical, even though the settlers did little more than express themselves: they threw paint at army vehicles, a few small rocks here and there, and scattered a symbolic quantity of nails on the road. A skirmish ensued after hundreds of settlers blocked the army units attempting to demolish the hamlets at night.
When leftists control Israeli courts, and traitors sit in Israel’s government, there is little choice left for good Jews but to resort to mild violence.
More than a dozen settlers were arrested.
