IDF wants to strike Hamas leaders; Peretz wants to strike revenant leaders

The IDF is planning on asking Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert for permission to make targeted strikes on Hamas leaders in response to Tuesday morning's attempted kidnapping of soldiers in the western Negev.

But defenseless 'defense minister' Amir Comrade Peretz has IDF troops tied up preventing buses from reaching the location of the former Jewish town of Homesh in northern Samaria. The buses are supposed to return the celebrants from yesterday's peaceful demonstration to their homes, but Peretz won't let the buses through. As a result, many revenants spent the night in Homesh.
Organizers of the march claimed that the IDF was preventing participants from leaving the settlement safely, and putting their lives at risk.

The IDF responded by saying that the march was not approved in the first place, and that the settlers and activists should leave Homesh the same way they entered it, by foot.


Most of the marchers left the settlement by foot, save a few hundred who decided to spend the night at the settlement in response to the IDF’s refusal.

Members of “Homesh First”, one group that organized the march, expressed rage over the IDF’s decision, saying that they were forcing families, women, and children, to walk home in the dark, often through Arab villages.

The group’s members said that it would hold Central Command Chief, Major General Yair Naveh responsible should anything happen to the marchers.

The IDF claimed that there was lighting in the area, and that forces would secure marchers who wished to leave on foot; the IDF has not yet confronted those who intend on spending the night there.

MK Uri Ariel (National Union-National Religious Party), intervened on befalf of the marchers, and called on Defense Minister Amir Peretz to immediately allow the buses to take the marchers to their homes, so that they would not be at risk walking through Arab villages.

According to Ariel, the situation was life-threatening, and Peretz would be responsible for any ‘disaster’ that may befall the marchers.
Fiddle a little louder Comrade....
