Central Command chief gets threatening letter

Following rising tensions between military officials and settlers, unknown people calling themselves 'the orange ones' send letter to Major-General Gadi Shamni saying, 'We'll get to you, too', calling IDF officers 'gang of wretched Yids, reminiscent of Judenrat'

"We'll get to you, too, and your children will see their father for the Satan he is", is just one of example of the threatening letters recently sent to Central Command Chief Major-General Gadi Shamni, following his fight against the extreme right.


The letters recently sent to Shamni are not signed by anyone, but contain harsh words on the Central Command chief's activity against settlers, as well as explicit threats that he will be harmed if he continues in this path.


"You are infested with anti-Semitism and hatred of real Jews, we will be able to get to you, too. The Arabs, those sons of Satan, are your love, and anyone who supports them is a son of Satan and that is you," one letter read.


The anonymous writers referred to IDF officers as "a gang of wretched Yids that are reminiscent of the Judenrat".


In part of the letter, the writers referred to themselves and "the orange ones" and stressed they would have no hand in damaging settlements in the West Bank.


In the past, settlers have protested outside Shamni's home and dozens, mostly youths, have been arrested.


A short while back Shamni's tires were slashed in his own driveway, and defense establishment officials fear the threats found in these letters may soon be realized, especially following the inflammation of recent weeks.
