1. Anyone disobeying army orders should face military jail time

2. settlement evacuation is not a job for soldiers
zionist forever   (12.19.12)
Settlement evacuation is a job for hired security willing to do the job for money not soldiers following orders. As for disobeying orders, a soldier is supposed to do as they are by their superiors and the man at the top answers to the government and if any disobey orders over this they should be punished. Right wing soldiers should not be allowed to refuse to evacuate settlements anymore than leftists should dodge the draft because of their ideology.
3. disobedience in Tsahal
Toledano Jean-Pierre ,   Israel   (12.19.12)
I understand that soldiers not always like to follow the orders of their officers, especially about the West Bank issue. But disobey military orders as soldier or as officer is, from my point of view, not tolerable at all. If you allow that, you make from the Tsahal an anarchic jumble. I don't like to say it, but bring these people to a court martial and punish them severely, idem with the instigators.
4. No different than Left Wing extremist who are objectors
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (12.19.12)
Both sides have their extremist. One side calls us Nazis, the other calls us cowards. Both sides refuse orders and both sides need to be disciplined.
5. Each and every
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (12.19.12)
one of the participants in these videos should be brought up on charges of sedition. They endanger both the State and their fellow soldiers. They are a shame to all of us that serve.
6. G'vt created prblm when the started using soldiers to expel
David ,   NY   (12.19.12)
7.  Soldiers should not be obliged to act..
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (12.19.12)
against their conscience.This way they will not disobey orders.
8. The young man in the video is right.
Israeli 2   (12.19.12)
Moreso, it is not for Israeli soldiers to get involved in disputes like that. The police should handle these things.
9. Sending IDF to expel Jews is a monstrous evil.
Chaim ,   Israel   (12.19.12)
The makers of this video are 100% correct. Sending the IDF to expel Jews from their homes is a monstrous evil. It is an absolute perversion of the purpose of the IDF - which is to protect Jews and their homes.
10. The Law!
DavidR ,   USA   (12.19.12)
There should be no laws either State or Miliarily that orders soldiers to act against their own people or to violate Torah Law. The shame in on the government, not the soldiers. I honor them for their stand. Torah first, then law of the Land. I feel sorry for all of you who think otherwise.
11. Gust Katif 2 In the Making
emanon ,   USA   (12.19.12)
Don't let it happen. Let's learn from our mistakes. Jews help Jews build new homes, not leave them homeless.
12.  # 2 - settlement evacuation is not a job for soldiers
split ,   US   (12.19.12)
Not on occupied land ,...
13. They will be the end of the state of Israel
Cohen,Israel   (12.19.12)
Enemy from with in.
14. 7
zionist forever   (12.19.12)
Soldiers do not have a conscious or personal opinions they obey orders. They do not have a right to refuse orders short of being ordered to carry out some kind of crime against humanity. If they are ordered to evacuate settlements they must do it but instead the pressure should be on the politicians to use hired help and not soldiers under orders.
15. And you want more soldiers like these....
Aaron Kuperman ,   Baltimore, MD   (12.20.12)
If the government is able to concript large numbers of hareidim, it means there will be a rising number of soldiers primed to mutiny. While some hareidim will demand religous exemptions (and these are anti-zionists who are very dovish) , the bulkof those drafted, especially from yeshiovs that accept government money, will be extreme hawks.
16. 14 I agree,soldiers must obey orders.
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (12.20.12)
BUT,a good leader ,must evaluate the consequences of his orders. Forcing and breaking excellent soldiers who decide to listen to their conscience,notwithstanding they risk severe punishment, is senseless, since they can be hugely productive in another field.. Moreover,how can a general rely on soldiers who act against their conscience? Don t put soldiers in a situation where they feel they have to refuse to follow the orders. A good general has good soldiers.
