Deja vu all over again: Peretz ignores IDF recommendations

It's deja vu all over again as Defense Minister Amir Comrade Peretz has overruled the IDF and ordered the destruction of some ninety homes in Judea, mostly belonging to Jews. Remember 'Amona'? We could be heading for several of them....
Defense Minister Amir Peretz ordered the Israel Defense Forces on Monday to renew preparations to raze structures built illegally in settlements in the West Bank.

Peretz has rejected some senior officers' recommendations to freeze the demolition efforts. The minister intends to prepare to raze the homes in just a few weeks.

The minister said there were plans to demolish 90 buildings built illegally, the majority of which were built by Israelis, and the rest by Palestinians.

The buildings in question are mostly caravans, as well as the foundations for a few permanent structures.

Peretz spoke during a meeting with some of the army's top brass. Some of the senior officers had voiced their concern that the situation in the West Bank was volatile and the demolition could only make things worse, and thus urged Peretz to hold off on razing the houses.

However, Peretz believes that now that fighting with Hezbollah guerillas has ceased, Israel must get back on track with regards to dealing with the illegal settlements.
Amazing that this is what the government is still thinking about. The Olmert-Peretz-Livni government must go!

If there are still sane military men in the IDF, I suspect that one day there will be a coup.

If I, as military commander of the northeastern front, were ordered to evacuate the Golan (G-d forbid)and thus hand a decisive military advantage to our genocidal enemies, I would refuse to issue such orders and would do everything in my power to frustrate such intentions.

There comes time when the minority, possesing,physically,the military, will refuse to willfully submit itself to the suicidal will of the "civilian" majority.I suspect that if such were to happen, not a few Jews would rejoice.
