Dear Media and Activist list:

Subject: An article on beit shemesh that I feel is more accurate than the media


It seems from this article and from this youtube taken by parents   regarding recent headline news in Beit Shemesh that this is obviously not a matter of religious coercion or about modesty because the children were all dressed modestly but rather about a group of extremists called Sikrikim intent on intimidating children in order to get their hands on the school property and getting away with their harassment.  Freedom of expression ends when there is verbal intimidation and when it inflicts fear into the hearts of  innocent parties such as little children.  It is the job of Police to protect the children from such verbal attacks rather than protect freedom of speech of these grown men who are scary looking and are yelling false and derogatory names at little girls. For Shame! 

Is the Media spin on this confrontation way out of proportion, completely missing the point and creating the distorted news that there is deep  friction between the Chareidi and the secular?  

What is the Beit Shemesh Police doing to stop the intimidation of the Sikrikim and protecting the children? As the author writes "When a small group of thugs intimidate everyone else into complacency, they indirectly gain power".

Lichvod HaRav Eliashiv: re: testimony that will help stop destruction of Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria


Lichvod Harav Eliashiv, shlita, amv"sh

Please see below article regarding Rav Shlomo Goren's statement against giving away parts of Eretz Yisroel to Arabs and his position to disobey orders from the IDF when they violate Torah law.

Lichvod HaRav Eliashiv and other esteemed Rabbanim on this list, amv"sh:

The nations of the world are accusing Am Yisroel of being occupiers. They claim Har Habayit, Hebron, Kever Rochel and Shchem as theirs and that we must end the "occupation". Davka, they pick the places which according to the Midrash were bought by our Jewish ancestors. They understand better than we do that when they choose these places they are in essence taking claim of the entire Eretz Yisroel and when we claim these places we are taking claim to our Biblical boundaries of Eretz Yisroel.  That is why they are incensed and angry when we dare challenge them when it comes to these holy places. When we fail to claim these Holy sites we submit to their tantrums and give in to their demands against the Divine will thereby nullifying the Covenant between Hashem and our forefathers Avraham, Yitzchok and Yaakov. In Parshath Nitzavim Hashem says Devarim 29 Pasuk 13 "Not with you alone do I seal this covenant and this curse, but with whoever is here standing with us today before Hashem, our G-d , and with whoever is not here with us today. " (that means us)

In Selichos we say Vayikra 26 Pasuk (42) "Vezacharti as Brisi Yaakov, Veaf as Brisi Yitzchok, Veaf es Brisi Avraham Ezkor, Vehaaretz Ezkor". I will remember My Covenant with Jacob and also My covenant with Isaac, and also My covenant with Abraham will I remember, and I will remember the Land. (43)The Land will be bereft of them; and it will be appeased for its sabbaticals having become desolate of them; and they must gain appeasement for their iniquity, because they were revolted by My ordinances and because their spirit rejected My decrees.

Settlers are woken up in the middle of the night and their homes and possessions including synagogues are demolished as per orders of the GOI  (Governement of Israel). How can this be allowed according to Torah law?  According to Torah, what is the status of Judea and Samaria? Clearly it is within the delineated borders of EY of Parshat Maasei. We would like Rav Eliashiv along with a Rabbinic army, Tzivos Hashem, to testify to that thereby saving homes now slated for destruction from being demolished and destroyed or even moved to a different location. Jewish soldiers may not throw their brethren from their homes.  Why must Jews call these parcels of Eretz Yisroel "disputed territories"?  According to Torah it is clear as day that these are not disputed and belong to the Nation of Israel and to the Nation of Israel exclusively as per the Divine Covenant with our forefathers Avrohom, Yitzchok and Yaakov. It is called the PROMISED LAND for precisely this reason!

 If peace and prosperity is to reign in the world it must be according to the Divine Roadmap.  If the settlers compromise it is not because they accept in principle the concept of "disputed territories".  It is because they are traumatized by a government that has lost its ideology and have forgotten the Torah. Let us unite to raise the banner of Torah throughout the world and create a Kiddush Hashem!

Even if the Nations will tantrum at these truths, it is critical testimony that when affirmed by the majority of Jews living throughout the world.  It will  save Jewish homes from destruction in Judea and Samaria and in homes in low lying areas from rocket attacks. It will stem the Islamic fundamentalism that has overtaken Europe and much of the world and is now threatening United States and Canada. The leadership of the Palestinians have transplanted themselves in America because they were left unchecked. (CAIR). Is it any wonder that anti-Semitism is on the rise?

 If one with the credentials of a Gadol Hador BeTorah UMitzvoth refuses to testify this given, aren't they chayav beDinei Shamayim? Also Har Habayit under the Waqf is used as a soccer field. Doesn't the Torah say Es Mikdashi Tiraoo. Given all the Mitzvoth that require davka HaMokom Asher Yivchar Hashem, how can we allow this continued bizayon and Chillul Hashem on Har Habayit? 

The following comes from the post

 Shlomo Goren adamantly believed that IDF soldiers should uphold the Torah law. Accordingly, he profoundly opposed the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords.  Believing in the redemption of Israel, he did not want any land in Eretz Yisrael to be illegally yielded and ceded to Israel’s arch-enemies. 
As he clearly said below, “an order to uproot settlements” was “contrary to Torah law.” Thus, he instructed IDF soldiers not to comply with such orders, which violated the Halacha. As he further said, “settling the land is a commandment, and uprooting the settlements is breaking the commandment.”
"It is clear that according to Halacha, a soldier who receives an order that runs contrary to Torah law should uphold the Halacha, and not the secular order. And since settling the land is a commandment, and uprooting the settlements is breaking the commandment, the soldier should not carry out an order to uproot settlements.” . . .  – Rabbi Shlomo Goren’s quote published in Hatzofeh National Religious Party newspaper on 12/19/93. (Source of quote:
Indeed, the clandestine illegal so-called Oslo “peace process” made with Arafat’s PLO Palestinian “terrorists” has admittedly been a “mistake”  an enormous mistakefor the State of Israel’s sovereignty and all Jewish People worldwide.  If Rabbi Goren could see what “violators of the covenant,” “traitors” to Jewish people, and “conspirators” with Israel’s arch-enemies have done to “holy” Eretz Yisrael after his death in 1994, no doubt, he would stay rolled over in his grave. It would be better for him to wait for a resurrection at the coming of the Mashiach into a better World to Come (Olam Haba) with a New Holy City of Jerusalem, than to weep with eternal sorrow in his heart over precious “holy” land relinquished to Palestinian “terrorists. (Read Post Summaries on right side of this web page regarding the illegal Oslo Peace Accords Suffocation of Legal/Political Rights to Judea/Samaria; Shimone Peres’ lifted up heel against Israel; the 1920 San Remo Resolution; and the Oslo Peace Accords betrayal of Ben-Gurion’s speech.)
Shlomo Goren served as a Chief Rabbi of Israel; a Chief Judge of the Supreme Rabbinical Court of Appeals; and a Chief Rabbi and Rabbinical Court Presiding Judge of Tel Aviv.  He was also the President (Nasi) sponsor of Yeshiva Har Bracha headed by Rabbi Eliezer Melamed (a well known author on Jewish Law).
According to interesting reports, Rabbi Goren and Rabbi Getz (the Chief Rabbi of the Western Wall and holy places in Israel) also searched for the Ark of the Covenant under the Temple Mount.  In June of 2011, the Israel Postal Co. issued a stamp honoring Rabbi Shlomo Goren – a remarkable Orthodox Torah observant Religious Zionist. (See stamp on top left side of this web page.)
ISRAEL HAS THE GREATEST MILITARY POWER ON EARTH BY THE SUPERNATURAL FINGER OF GOD!  It is time to tap into this supernaturalpower, once again, by upholding the sacred Torah Law of Moshe like the spiritual Orthodox Zionist Major-General Rabbi Goren did in the IDF.
There are no short-cuts to the ancient Holy God of Israel. Since the days of Moshe, God has always required that the Children of Israel fear (reverence) Him; walk in all His ways (according to applicable Torah law commandments, statutes, and judgments); love Him; and serve Him with all their heart and soul. (Deut. 10:12)  Without observance of the Torah, the supernatural power of God cannot manifest to God’s Chosen People, whom He created for His praise and glory on earth.
Indeed, God established a “holy people” from the House of Jacob/Israel so “all people of the earth” would see they are “called by the name of the Lord” (YHVH) – and would be “afraid” of Israel. (Deut. 28:9,10) That’s exactly what happened in the 6-Day War.This war was won by the supernatural finger of God,” “fear of God,” and “fear of the Jews.”
An article of eyewitness accounts and reports of “miracles” published in Arutz Sheva 7 (5/14/07) regarding the 6-Day War is discussed below, in part. The article is titled: “Miracles in the 6-Day War: Eyewitness Accounts”:
·         IDF surprises brought the “fear of God” and “fear of the Jews” upon the Arabs:
"The Arabs were surprisedthe fear of the Jews fell upon them. In Hevron, and in Shechem, in Jenin and in Jericho the Arabs were heavily armed. There was not even one small Arab village without arms. With great haste, the Arabs, however, hid their weapons and didn't consider using them. They raised their hands up, and flew white flags of surrender from every edifice. The fear of G-d fell upon hundreds of thousands of proud Arabs, who were filled with hatred and loathing for Israel. Only yesterday, they had sworn to fight until their last drop of blood."
·         A dumbfounded German journalist’s summary of the 6-Day War:
Nothing like this has happened in history. A force including a 1000 tanks, hundreds of artillery cannons, many rockets and fighter jets, and a hundred thousand soldiers armed from head to toe was destroyed in two days in an area covering hundreds of kilometers filled with reinforced outposts and installations. And this victory was carried out by a force that lost many soldiers and much equipment, positions, and vehicles. No military logic or natural cause can explain this monumental occurrence.”
·         Ezer Weizmann’s profound words about mysteries in the 6-Day War:
Major-General and IDF Director of Operations in the 6-Day War, Ezer Weizmann (who was later elected President of the State of Israel), was asked by a fallen pilot’s father to explain the following mystery:  How could the Israel Air Force fly planes for three hours “from one Egyptian airstrip to another destroying the enemy planes,” without Egyptians warning their forces via radio of oncoming Israeli attacks? After some silence, Mr. Weizmann responded to the father’s question with these profound words: “The finger of G-d.”  
·         Haaretz Newspaper’s admission of supernatural “help from heaven” in the 6-Day War:
By its own admission, the secular Haaretz Newspaper acknowledged Israel’ssupernatural victory as follows:
 “Even a non-religious person must admit this war was fought with help from heaven.” 
(As referenced in the Arutz Sheva 7 article above,
eye witness accounts and reports were obtained from HaTekufa HaGedola,
Rabbi Menachem Kasher, Chap. Sichu B’chol Niflaotav, pp. 445, 446, 452 (2000 ed.)

Like God’s Divine complete number 7, Rabbi Goren left a spiritual legacy of 7 Torah observant protégés with Makabim spirits of righteousness according to God’s will. Indeed, this writer believes our journey in life is Divinely predestined, and not by chance. Surely, such 7 Children/Sons of Light protégés will carry on Goren’s spiritual legacy in these End Times of Good vs. Evil, which our generations are witnessing before our eyes.(See “Mobilizing Children/Sons of Light” link on the bottom left side of this web page.)
          As reported on (1/1/10), Rabbi Goren’s 7 protégé ex-IDF rabbis of the air force, navy, and IDF Educational Division ruled that Halacha supersedes any military orders that contradict Jewish Law (including the Torah law). These 7 rabbis are members of the LAHAV organization – an acronym “TO STRENGTHEN JUDAISM IN THE IDF.”
BARAK’S ORDERS TO EVACUATE JUDEA/SAMARIA STRONGLY REBUKED BY THE 7 RABBIS:  In a strong letter of rebuke, the 7 rabbis informed Defense Minister Ehud Barak to “stop the “incitement” against Hesder yeshivas, and to reinstate Har Bracha expelled from the Hesder framework. Hesder yeshivas give religious Jewish soldiers the opportunity to participate in the IDF, and also study the Torah. Barak expelled Har Brachafrom the Hesder framework after head Rabbi Eliezer Melamed (mentioned above) gave his full support to IDF soldiers for “refusing orders” to evacuate Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria.”
            The letter to Barak signed by the 7 Rabbis Yosef Harel, Meir Keller, Yosef Wasserman, Yechiel Farber, Shlomo Garbarchik, Abshlalom Katzir, and Pini Isaac (LAHAV’s chairman), further made it crystal clear to him by saying:  “As protégés of former Chief IDF Rabbi Shlomo Goren… there are clear directives with regard to orders that contradict Halacha” as follows:
  “If the soldier is convinced that the order contradicts Halacha, he is not to carry out the order.”
These 7 rabbis also made it crystal clear to Barak that “protection for religious soldiers from being coerced into carrying out acts that contradict their religious beliefs was built into the IDF’s military codes.” They also cited the book “Piskei Hilchot Tzava” (Halachic Rulings of the Army) written by Shlomo Goren with a Chief-of-Staff’s emblem on it. These rabbis also demanded that Barak “stop transgressing” “explicit” IDF “written directives” as follows:
“We demand that the defense establishment and those who stand at its head follow directives enshrined as law in IDF regulations. We call on them to stop transgressing these explicit, written directives, which have governed the IDF since it was first established and which enabled religious soldiers to adhere to commandments while serving.”
It is time for a Torah observant Prime Minister with a Makabim righteous spirit to lead the State of Israel.
It is time for all military leaders in the IDF to uphold the sacred Torah Law of Moshe like the Orthodox Zionist Major-General Rabbi Goren did before his death in 1994; or they shouldn’t lead the IDF.
It is time that non-religious leftists/atheists “violators of the covenant”; “traitors” to the State of Israel and Jewish People worldwide; and “conspirators” with Israel’s arch-enemies seeking to divide and destroy Eretz Yisrael from without and within  – be voted out of the Knesset and/or removed from office in loathsome shame. This includes all those seeking to illegally divide, relinquish, and destroy the “Holy” City of Jerusalem today. Without any legal authority or power to do so (pursuant to the 1922 “Mandate for Palestine” and under international law discussed in article posts on this Web Blog), they have already illegally made the enormous “mistake” of yielding and ceding precious “holy” land in Judea/Samaria/Gaza/Hebron to a "foreign power." Eretz Yisrael belongs to our Jewish People forever – not to Ishmaelite/Arab PLO/PA Palestinian “terrorists”! ENOUGH!
Finally, it is time for the “remnant of Jacob” to rise up like a “great lion” among all the heathen Gentile nations seeking to divide and destroy Israel. May the supernaturalfinger of God,” “fear of God,” and “fear of the Jews” manifest again in many ways – like it did in the 6-Day War of “miracles.” So be it!

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Prov. 28:1)
“And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of the sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver. Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off.” (Micah 5:8,9)
“God brought him [Israel] forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows. He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir him up? Blessed is he that blesseth thee [Israel], and cursed is he that curseth thee.” – Balaam’s blessings upon Israel (Num. 24:8,9)

Police who Threaten Nationalist with Taser at Home and another Jew arrested for bowing on Har Habayit. Rabbanim sign Declaration!


Dear Rabbanim, Print and Radio Media, and Activist List,


The avoidance of giving testimony is a violation of the Biblical exhortation:

א וְנֶפֶשׁ כִּי-תֶחֱטָא, וְשָׁמְעָה קוֹל אָלָה, וְהוּא עֵד, אוֹ רָאָה אוֹ יָדָע; אִם-לוֹא יַגִּיד, וְנָשָׂא עֲוֹנוֹ. Vayikra 5:1

If a person will sin; he accepted a demand for an oath, and he is a witness - either he saw or he knew  - if he does not testify, he shall bear his iniquity.

This talks about the situation whereby one is called upon to testify by a litigant, he is required to testify.  According to Tosfot  the "iniquity"  it mentions is carried by anyone who fails to give critical testimony, even if he did not take an oath. 

I suggest that the Yesha residents call upon Gedolei Hador BaTorah UbaMitzvoth to testify that homes in Judea and Samaria are legal properties and should not be destroyed.  Let them issue a halaachic ruling that no soldier is permitted to demolish another Jews home for political purposes of the Government of Israel under the IDF or under Civilian administration of the Military. Please forward this to as many Rabbanim, Hesder Rabbanim especially, and Media personalities as possible. Let us not forget those Rabbonim who collaborated with the government of Israel during the Disengagement.

There are numerous examples of Yesh Din Veyesh Dayan of those who were responsible of the Disengagement who are in bad shape today.  There seems to be a direct correlation between those who assisted in the Disengagement and those who are experiencing all kinds of heavenly or human punishment.

We therefore call upon all Rabbonim to provide critical testimony to prevent further expulsions, further harassment and demolitions of homes in Judea and Samaria and we call upon the media to report on it. It would be wise to learn from previous mistakes. 

 Failure of a Jew to testify in order to prevent property damage to a fellow Jew is liable under the laws of Heaven. 

If any Rav needs a wakeup call just listen to this audio of Rav Weissmandl speaking about the Silence of American Jewry in an election year on their failure to scream out to stop the systematic murder of 10,000 to 15,000 Jews a day in Hungary and their failure to get the Americans or British who controlled the airspace to bomb the train tracks to Auschwitz.

Please take the time to read this still very relevant post written in 2008 calling on Rabbonim to end the Silence..

Video: Police Threaten Nationalist with Taser at Home


Footage shows how police harassed nationalist Pinchasi Bar-On inside the home where he is under house arrest.

Gil Ronen

Video footage (below) shows police officers harassing a nationalist, Pinchasi Bar On, inside his own home at Esh Kodesh, near Shilo.

Bar On, a soldier in the IDF, was arrested three weeks ago on suspicion of leaking military information to other residents in Judea and Samaria (Yehuda and Shomron, or Yesha). After more than a week of strenuous interrogation in the National Unit for Investigation of International and Serious Crime, he was released to eight days' house arrest after no connection was found between him and the alleged offenses.  

During the days he was in house arrest, in the home of a relative in one of the communities in Binyamin, police came to the home twice a day, ostensibly to make sure that he was there. Every night, police visited the home in the wee hours of the night, between 1:00 and 3:00 a.m.

On the night between Wednesday and Thursday the police came at 2:40 a.m. Bar On opened the door and the police demanded identification. He told them – as he had told all policemen who visited the home previously – that his ID card had been left behind at Hadarim Prison, where he had been held, and that he had no other ID on him.

These police told him that he was being detained and taken to the police station for identification. Bar On objected and said that the police have other ways of ascertaining his identity besides dragging him off to the station at 3:00 a.m.

When the policemen insisted, Bar On said the arrest was unlawful, and refused to go along. In response, policeman Tomer Elias pulled out a taser gun and threatened to use it against Bar On, even though Bar On had used no force against the policemen.   

Bar On was eventually handcuffed and taken to the police station, where he was charged with attacking Elias...

Bar On denied the charge and said Elias was deliberately harassing him for fear that Bar On would file a complaint against him. He was then locked up all day and cuffed during a large part of the time.

NGO Honenu that assisted Bar On said: "It appears that the police have decided to use the tools their disposal to get revenge on a person whose guilt they were not able to prove. This is a scandal."

Today yet another Jew was arrested for the crime of showing reverence to Hashem on Har HaBayit. 

This is the 7th arrest in the last 4 months.

I am urging Rabbis, leaders and organizations to sign a letter condemning the terrible policies of the Israeli Government and Police on Har HaBayit. Already several organizations and rabbanim have signed. Harav Moshe Tendler has also agreed in principle to sign and push the letter, Rav Tendler asked me to call him tomorrow.

Any Rav who wishes to sign to the attached letter (Public Declaration) should send the following information back to me at

Public Declaration

"They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain" (Isaiah 11:9)

End the Persecution of Jews on the Temple Mount!

We are shocked to learn that Jews, who ascend to the permitted areas of the Temple Mount in accordance with the rulings of their rabbinic authorities, are maltreated by the Israeli Police. It is incomprehensible that the State of Israel, which defines itself as "Jewish and Democratic", would act most un-Jewish and un-Democratic by implementing policies of harassment and discrimination against Jew's who ascend the Temple Mount!

After investigating the claims of those who regularly ascend to the Temple Mount: We find the Israeli Government guilty of implementing and enforcing the following policies that violate both civil and Torah principle!
  • Only Jews must wait in a special security line before entering the Mount

  • Only Jews must show their ID's before entering the Mount

  • Only Jews are subject to special "ritual item searches" before entering the Mount

  • Only Jews are divided into groups when ascending the Mount and are forbidden from walking on the Mount alone

  • Only Jews are followed and filmed by both Israeli police and representatives of the Muslim religious authority (aka. WAKF) during their entire stay on the Mount

  • Only Jews are arrested for crimes, including the following: praying; learning Torah; holding religious books; wearing tallit or tefilin  closing eyes, swaying;  bowing; singing; dancing, ripping ones shirt in mourning for the Temple or picking up dirt to be placed of the forehead of a groom

  • Only Jews are prevented from ascending the Mount more than once a day

We the undersigned, call upon the Israeli Government to immediately end these policies, which contradict the most sacred values of the Jewish Nation. We will not stand silent as Jews are humiliated, the Torah denigrated and the Temple Mount betrayed at the hands of the Jewish State. The Government of Israel should remember that it was only 63 years ago that the British enacted such decrees against the Jews at the Western Wall. We call upon all Jews to protest this ongoing travesty of justice through every legal and democratic means possible.

We urge the Government of Israel to adhere to what is written, "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea." (Isaiah 11:9)

AFSI  strongly condemns the demolition despotism of Ehud Barak, Israel's Minister of Defense - - Tel: 011-972-3-697-6663; Fax: 011-972-3-697-6218.


I have just called Barak's office and delivered the message that our membership, throughout the U.S.A., and in Canada, England, France, Germany and Israel, is outraged by the destruction of Jewish homes and synagogues in Israel. I stressed the point that there is NO  CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD that destroys its own holy places and the homes of its inhabitants. 


It is disgraceful and shameful that Israel's Minister of Defense, Ehud Barak, can unilaterally decide to destroy Jewish homes that he deems "illegal." As was discovered in Migron, after three homes had been cruelly destroyed, when the case finally got to the courts the Arabs who claimed ownership had NO papers to prove their case, and indeed, did not even show up at the court to justify their claim. 


 Barak's claim that he must uphold the law is laughable, since thousands of illegal Arab homes are left untouched, while he diabolically destroys Jewish homes.


AFSI calls on Jews throughout the world, especially at this time of Chanukah, when courage and bravery are celebrated, to send emails, make phone calls, and send faxes to  MOD Ehud Barak. Let him know that our band of modern day Maccabees will not stand by silently while these atrocities occur.


Our message to PM Benjamin Netanyahu is to annex Judea and Samaria so that there is no question about the legality of these biblical areas that have always been, and remain, the heartland of Israel.;;


Barak: Full Steam Ahead for Demolitions
by David Lev

In an interview Thursday, Defense Minister Ehud Barak denied that he had acted on his own and ignored a deal to ensure that Ramat Gilad would not be demolished. "I can understand aiming for a compromise, but one way or another, illegal outposts will be taken down," Barak said. "Jews cannot settle on land whose ownership is disputed by Arabs."

In its Friday edition last week, the Mekor Rishon newspaper reported that government minister had worked out a deal with Yesha Council chairman Danny Dayan to prevent the demolition of Ramat Gilad. According to the deal - which, reports this week said, is back on track - several structures on the Ramat Gilad hilltop would be moved several hundred meters to areas that are not claimed by Arabs; in return, the government would authorize the area as part of the city plan of Karnei Shomron, effectively turning the area into a new neighborhood for the town. The deal was also said to have been approved by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Barak did not express a public opinion on the deal, but according to the report, he decided on his own to quash the deal, and sent the army in to demolish the site early last week. The forces gathered at the Jitt junction, about five kilometers from Karnei Shomron, where Ramat Gilad is located. As the forces were gathering, hundreds of protesters gathered on Road 55, intending to block the advance of the forces to the site, which is on a hilltop, several hundred meters above the road. As tension mounted, several protesters entered the Binyamin army base adjacent to the town. According to Mekor Rishon, Barak called off the forces only after getting a phone call from a fuming Netanyahu, who was said to have been shocked at Barak's actions.

Barak, for his part, said that the story was inaccurate, although he did not deny receiving a call from Netanyahu asking him to stop the evacuation. Regardless, he said, as far as he was concerned, any deals to prevent the demolition of Ramat Gilad, or any other question, were not his concern. "Our democracy demands the rule of law, and until the Attorney General approves these deals, the IDF will enforce the law, which is to remove outposts built on land claimed by Arabs. I am all for compromise, but the IDF will carry out the law as it is supposed to," Barak said.
