Ehud Ahmed Barak bars IDF troops from eating, drinking or smoking at checkpoints during Ramadan

Defense Minister Ehud Barak has ordered IDF troops not to eat, drink or smoke at checkpoints during the month-long Ramadamadan Muslim fast. Ramadamadan starts on Saturday (Hat Tip: Cheryl H).
Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi have decided to ease a series of restrictions on the Palestinian population during the month of Muslim month Ramadan, which begins Saturday.

The soldiers were instructed to act respectfully towards the residents and refrain as much as possible from eating, drinking and smoking in public in front of the Palestinian population, particularly at crossings, during the fasting hours.

According to the IDF, the ease of restrictions is part of a policy aimed at improving the fabric of life of West Bank's population. During the month of Ramadan, the activity hours of crossings leading to the cities of Jenin and Ramallah will be extended until midnight every day. The rest of the checkpoints will operate as usual, for 24 hours a day.
But it gets worse.
The security forces have been updated that ahead of the end of Ramadan, and as part of preparations for the Eid al-Fitr festivities, Palestinian children may be carrying weapon-shaped toys and firecrackers.
What could go wrong?

Many people on the Right are upset about Barak's dhimmi orders.
Rightwing and religious Israelis were up in arms Tuesday after Defense Minister Ehud Barak ordered IDF troops not to eat while patrolling IDF checkpoints in Judea and Samaria during the monthlong Muslim Ramadan month, which begins Thursday. In a statement, the Samaria Residents Council said that “it is sad to see that Barak has become an expert on Islam, as he sends IDF soldiers and border troops to tear down synagogues, beat up rabbis, issue orders to demolish Yeshivot, and arrest Jewish youths by dragging them by their peyot, their sidecurls. Is he Ehud Barak or 'Ahmed Barak,'?” the Council asked rhetorically.
He's not a pal (the caption in the picture at top left), that's for sure.

Carl, this is sheer insanity on Barak's part. How could he????? Where does he think he is? Maybe he wants to move in with the-ever lovely Amira Hass and Slimy Shimon?

Shouldn't that be Ehud dhimmi Barak bin Obama?

How does "the easing of restrictions on the West Bank population" entail any change in the personal habits of IDF forces? I'm not Jewish or Israeli, or Muslim, but it seems to me that such an order to the IDF will only make it more likely that IDF soldiers will get killed by portraying the defense organization as weak-kneed. Am I wrong? If so, how?

Second chief dhimmi Jew Ehud Barak orders the IDF to show extreme respect to Arabs who hate Jews and who want to see them dead but he has never ordered the IDF to show such respect to the revanants.

In Barak's world, its kosher to kiss Arab behinds and its kosher to slap Jews.

What could could go wrong indeed

Why do you say Barak is not a "Pal".

He is is Pal.

He's not an Israeli, that's for sure.

Respect is weakness to the Arabs. Ehud Barak, and the rest of the repeat offenders [Peres, Ohmer, Lipzi, Bibi], have been politicians for far too long. Israel needs to clean house, and put real Jews like MK Michael Ben-Ari in a position with more power.
