1. Where are the Likud ministers?
Rachel ,   US   (03.09.11)
Why are they being silent?
2. If a soldier's life is threatened - they are permitted
Talula ,   Israel   (03.09.11)
to shoot in self-defense. So! that just about answers any problems that may arise with looney settlers who want to dish out all the violence.
3. Exploiting an imagined controversy....
Gabriel ,   Jerusalem   (03.09.11) order to cause further strife is what Orbach is doing. Orbach is trying to make himself important by derailing a simply issue into a simplistic and antagonistic left/right paradigm. The bottom line is simple - if the settlers threaten soldiers who are carrying out their orders they will face consequences. If the settlers are non-violent as Eldad suggest, then there is nothing to fear. Nobody will be harmed if the settlers protest government actions they oppose peacefully. The allegations of "incitement" against settlers are absurd. Orbach should address *real* incitement, such as the virulent anti-Semitic and anti-Zionistic propaganda around our universities and among the Arab minorities.
4. Don't be naive
Zev ,   Israel   (03.09.11)
This is all part of an ongoing brainwashing of the soldiers so that when the time comes they will not hesitate to open live fire on de-ligitamated settlers. The police butality has succeeded and the army's turn will come.
5. Arabs wildest dream...
Gabe Yakmore ,   Canada   (03.09.11)
...will come true the day IDF will kill fellow Jews.
DAVID ,   JUDEA   (03.09.11)
As you see the state has opened a war front on its citizens, meanwhile ignoring Iran and its allies. Ynet is a great producer of daily brainwashing, in order to support the state and its twisted agenda.
7. And "settlers" must drill for IDF violence
Rebecca ,   Modi'in   (03.09.11)
Like when the IDF arrive with their faces covered, name tags removed, and fire into the "settlers" backs.
8. Settlers are shameful
Shlomo ,   Jerusalem   (03.09.11)
Attacking the army that protects them- shame on them. They put the entire country in danger with their insane antics. They threaten peace and security for the entire country. SHAME ON YOU!
9. Residing in Judea & Samaria
Maansingh ,   The Netherlands   (03.09.11)
IDF soldiers should NOT kill Jewish settlers residing in Judea & Samaria. WHY not ? Because the Jewish People are the rightful owners of Judea & Samaria. And thus, their residences should NOT be demolished.
10. Judea & Samaria are as much part of Israel as Tel Aviv..
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.09.11)
Soldiers were mentally prepared for the evil deportation of Jews from Gaza by brainwashing exercises. In one such exercise, soldiers were told to imagine Jewish residents were all that stood between themselves and paradise... Clearly this outrageous attempt to demonize Judea/Samaria Jews is more brainwashing. Israel must not tolerate this outrageous attack on our brothers and sisters in Judea and Samaria. Judea and Samaria are as much part of Israel as Tel Aviv.
11. So, the nationalist soldiers/officers will....
Adina Kutnicki ,   Israel   (03.10.11)
'drill' against leftist inciters. Vilnai is actually suggesting we have 2 armies, inciting a milchemet achim. He may very well get his wish if he doesn't cease and desist!!
