And the Blood Libel on Jewish Settlers continues. By US Lieutenant General Michael R. Fenzel, a three-star general. By the IDF itself? By Bank Leumi? By Israel Postal Bank?

The Fraudulent Case Against ‘Violent Settlers'
U.S. officials are using pro-Palestinian NGO sources to back a controversial effort aimed at punishing the Jewish state
BY LIEL LEIBOVITZ Feb 7, 2024
"Much of the information that these lawmakers were citing came from a single, ostensibly impartial source whose words carry weight in Washington in part because of his rank: Lieutenant General Michael R. Fenzel, a three-star general who currently serves as the U.S. security coordinator to Israel and the Palestinian Authority (USSC)."

Fueled by anti-Israel organizations such as OCHA and Breaking the Silence, the fraudulent campaign about “settler violence” continues to spread.

Sadly, parts of the IDF, in the leadership, has become infected!
IDF drill simulating Israelis kidnapping Arabs blasted by Israeli leaders
Far-right ministers slam IDF over drill simulating settlers kidnapping Palestinians.
Military says exercise was among the 'extreme scenarios' troops drilled for, apologizes for vests labeled 'enemy forces' worn by soldiers pretending to be settlers
Yes the IDF Military apologized after having gotten tremendous justified backlash... but how sincere is their apology?
This is what Chana G wrote (a translation) in response to this stupid IDF drill.
Shalom to Defense Minister Yoav Galant
My name is Chana G, a resident of Talmon. My spouse is a doctor in the reserves in the 890th paratrooper battalion, my two sons are paratroopers in the 646th brigade.
While all three have been recruited since the beginning of the war and are currently fighting in Khan Yunis, I heard that the IDF considers them an enemy.
Unfortunately, I cannot contact them and inform them of this, but as soon as I can I will inform them and ask them not to burden the IDF forces with the presence of an enemy in its ranks.
And I will preface an answer to your expected response: The IDF spokesman's denials are lies.
In stark contrast to the speaker's statement, the IDF in the exercise held yesterday (2/5/24) did indeed treat the residents of Judea and Samaria as an enemy.
General Yehuda Fox is indeed a dedicated officer who spends his days defaming the settlers and turns a blind eye to the way scenarios that are happening every day are being dealt with in front of our eyes.
We see the PA forces training to occupy bases and settlements. It is the same turning a blind eye that characterized the first days of October in the Otef, (the border of Gaza) calling them far-fetched scenarios and marking the residents of Judea and Samaria as enemies and is an existential threat to the State of Israel.
Major Yehuda Fox must be deposed immediately, before the disaster that will necessitate it.
For the security of the residents of Israel, for regaining trust in the IDF and for the benefit of Meretz party which desperately needs a new commander in its ranks.
Yes. It can justifiably be argued that the IDF spokesperson apology is neither sincere nor sufficient.
The blood libels against Jewish Settlers and specifically the Hilltop Youth has been going on for years. Many Rabbonim in Eretz Yisroel have finally spoken out but still not sufficient and Rabbonim in Chutz LeAretz need to view Torat Eretz Yisroel as relevant to Torah and not just a matter of Politics. How can the excuse of Politics justify being silent and not making a statement?
Why does it take "Free Palestine" rallies supporting jihad and violence throughout America and college campus to wake up?
We need to address and reverse the terrible miscarriage of justice by the Shabak Jewish Division of Terror, and by the Justice Dept and by the government leadership to the Settlers and specifically the Hilltop Youth.
We, the entire country, all of Am Yisroel are now reaping the bitter fruits of allowing the false narrative to spread, and for allowing the miscarriage of justice of Amiram Ben Uliel and for not stopping it sooner.
These same blood libels are now being spread against the IDF, the Jewish people and not just Settlers.
The same leadership that allowed the October 7 massacre to happen under their watch allowed a dangerous security situation in Judea and Samaria for years. They were asleep on October 7 failing to protect the Gaza border because of a false Conceptzia. Had the Settlers and our rightful claim to our land been defended, maybe these negligence leaders would not be in power today, and maybe October 7 would never have happened.
So now, any apology by the IDF needs to be accompanied with concrete reform.
Amiram Ben Uliel, falsely accused, slandered, convicted of the Arab village Duma Arson in 2015 based on his forced confession alone must get released.
Amiram Ben Uliel's verdict must be revisited, overturned and Amiram released with reparations!
This apology also needs to be accompanied with an apology to all those Settler farmers and individuals presently under administrative detention and/or administrative restrictions in Judea and Samarian because of allegedly being ticking time bombs.
These slanderous, unproven, unwarranted administrative detention orders and restrictions must be rescinded.
The freedom and release of the farmers must be secured with no strings attached thereby restoring the good name of these innocent G-d fearing Settlers!
These are the conditions necessary to accept this apology as sincere.
Please note that these "Violent Settlers" seem to have in common, long Peyot and a large Kippa. Just an observation...
And it should be noted that it is these Settlers living on the High ground of Judea and Samaria, protecting the large civilian population centers on the low ground, places like Tel Aviv and Haifa, who are getting blood libeled as violent and dangerous :(
Do we need another Jihad massacre Chas veSholom to wake up?
So who are these "Violent Settlers"?
Meet farmer "Violent Settler" Yinon Levi. You can see his picture in the AFSI link below with his adorable farm animals in his IDF uniform.
Yinon Levi just found out that he was issued a 4 months administrative detention order issued 2 months ago. If he was so dangerous why wasn't he informed about it until now, 2 months later.
No Evidence, No Explanation: Timing of this is Obvious.
February 5, 2024, by AFSI Staff
Police have served a summons for a hearing before the imposition of an administrative restriction order to Yinon Levi, a husband, father, and farmer near the town of Michmas in the Binyamin region. The order comes from General Yehuda Fox, who is appointed over the IDF's Central Command....
Just the other day, Bank Leumi notified Yinon, one of four Israelis who were targeted last week by US sanctions, that his accounts in Israel have been frozen.
Another "Violent Settler".
The Israel Postal Bank has sequestered and closed the account of David Chai Chasdai, see his picture at the beginning of this post with his cute kids, another one of four Israelis who were targeted by US sanctions for claims of violence against Arabs in Judea and Samaria. The account is shared with Chasdai's wife. "The fact that a government bank decides to sequester the accounts of settlers because of pressure from far-left organizations and the hostile American government is unfathomable, but the fact that it is happening under a right-wing government a moment after the worst massacre in history is a national embarrassment," David Chasdei stated.

Israeli Banks Freeze Accounts Of "Settlers" Sanctioned By Biden Administration
The Israel Guys on Biden's Executive Order
And if that's not enough, the Hague might be investigating their bank accounts as well!
Problems not only in the US: the settlers who will enter the black list may be interrogated in The Hague.
The order issued by the United States against David Chai Hasdai, Einan Tanjil, Shalom Zicherman and Yinon Levy may pave their way to an investigation at the International Court of Justice, and they also risk measures from Israeli banks - including the possibility of closing their accounts (article in Hebrew)
"High Level Settler Violence" is a frequent modern day blood libel, on Jewish Settlers. The PA is a Cradle of Killers. Arab Violence by Palestinian Jihad supporting Hamas should be sanctioned in Judea and Samaria and in Gaza. By contrast, Settlers have every G-d Given right to defend themselves against their Jihadist neighbors and sanctioning them is despicable.
Meanwhile there are reports with accompanying videos of our enemies conducting military style parachuting under the guise of a sports activity probably preparing for another Nova type pogrom Chas veSholom coming from Judea and Samaria ridges over low lying areas into the Sharon and the Shfela. (Haifa and Tel Aviv areas).
