For some articles about the events in Hebron and the territories click here, here, here, and here. To get an idea of the treatment given by settlers to Israel's soldiers and police(wo)men click here. Of course the government is accused of using the evacuation of the House of War for electoral purposes. As if the open and covert support by rightwing politicians for extremists who hurl stones and throw acid at our soldiers, who destroy and damage Palestinian property ( olive trees, mosques, graveyards ) and attack Palestinians, etc. etc. is not driven by political considerations. Tomorrow an article of mine on the subject will appear in a Dutch daily. I wrote it right before the evacuation started, a few hours ago I sent them an updated version.
