Police Chief: Police May Use Live Ammunition in Hebron

In an interview with Channel 2 News, Police Chief Moshe Karadi implies that the police may use live ammunition against Jewish 'squatters' in Hebron. (Hat Tip: Harvey in Efrat).

The evacuation of settlers from Palestinian-owned houses they have occupied in the Hebron marketplace will go on as planned, and police will use force if they must, police Chief Moshe Karadi said in interview to Israel's Channel 2 Saturday. [There's only one problem: the houses are not 'Palestinian-owned.' They were built on Jewish-owned land in the Hebron market place. CiJ]

When asked whether he believes the evacuation may lead to blood shed, Karadi said he hopes the situation will not come to that, but added this was a possibility the police have taken into account.

This gets more and more ridiculous. I had long known that the land had originally been owned by Jews, and was now administered by the government's successor to the Jordanian "trustee for enemy property". I had naïvely assumed that this was because the original owner's heirs could not be traced, or were not interested in the headache of managing their ancestor's "investment"; or else that it was owned by an institution that no longer exists, so the government is left administering its property.

But I recently learned that the owner is an institution that still exists, and that is currently run by none other than R Mordechai Eliyahu, who is of course more than willing to have the current occupants live there. So what exactly is the problem?

The government is looking for a pretext to expel the Jews from Hebron. There is no other explanation.
