Will they be investigated too?

IDF Major General Elazar Stern, who is religious himself and who has been in the forefront of efforts to undermine the IDF's hesder program, was subjected to verbal abuse and some saliva when he attended a family celebration at Moshav Elazar in Gush Etzion:
Coward, chicken, traitor – those were some of the words hurled at Major-General Elazar Stern during a ceremony in honor of his daughter’s wedding in the Elazar settlement in Gush Etzion Saturday.

Residents gathered around the settlement’s synagogue and blamed Stern for turning Gush Katif’s residents homeless.

One of the settlers, Menachem, told Ynet, “All day Saturday it seemed as if Major-General Stern was stressed, and acting like he was being persecuted. He felt uncomfortable, and after what he did in the disengagement, I think that is warranted.”

According to him, Stern’s wife pushed people away from the synagogue and yelled, “Go away, crazies. Leave us alone.” Eventually, the Stern family left the synagogue.

This was not the first incident in which Stern has been criticized by settlers. Before the disengagement, Stern received similar treatment during a visit to Neveh Dkalim; his tires were slashed, and teenagers cursed at him.
I wonder if they called him to the Torah yesterday.

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
