    Halutz: Up to 5,000 have illegally entered Gaza Strip settlements

    Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Dan Halutz said Sunday that the army believes that some 5,000 anti-disengagement activists have infiltrated the Gush Katif settlement bloc illegally. To date, the defense establishment's official estimate had been that 3,000 people had entered Gaza illegally. Halutz said that only 50% of the Gaza Strip settlers would leave their homes by August 17.

    Halutz spoke hours after GOC Southern Command Dan Harel estimated that the planned evacuation of Gaza Strip settlements would go forward even if the number of illegal activists in the Strip rose to 5,000.

    "In the end, three or four or even 5,000 people will not prevent the IDF and the Israel Police from carrying out the law of the Knesset and the decision of the cabinet. They may make it more colorful. I hope they do not make it more violent."

    Settler leaders were to lock the gates of some Gaza settlements Sunday to keep out the soldiers and police officers who are charged with handing out the eviction orders to residents.

    In a parallel protest, dozens of police officers received telephone calls from people in the United States who identified themselves as members of the Chabad movement, asking the police to refuse to carry out evacuations, and to influence fellow officers to refuse, the radio reported.

    It said the police were outraged that their personal phone numbers were distributed to disengagement opponents abroad.

    Friday night I saw an interesting news item about a training exercise for the army kids that must confront fellow Jews to expel them.

    They were making simulations among themselves, and seemed to be having a fun time playing "cowboys and indians".

    I'm sure that Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Dan Halutz, and his soldiers must have had the thought cross their mind that the Land from which they will be expelling their own People, is also their Land too.

    Even those young army soldiers, who have been brainwashed and degraded by their own atheist parents to be the uncircumcized Phillistines, to them even this poem should have some meaning:


    The Lay of the Last Minstrel (excerpt)
    Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832)

    "Breathes there the man with soul so dead..."



    Breathes there the man with soul so dead
    Who never to himself hath said,
    This is my own, my native land!
    Whose heart hath ne’er within him burned,
    As home his footsteps he hath turned
    From wandering on a foreign strand!
    If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
    For him no minstrel raptures swell;
    High though his titles, proud his name,
    Boundless his wealth as wish can claim
    Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
    The wretch, concentred all in self,
    Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
    And, doubly dying, shall go down
    To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
    Unwept, unhonored , and unsung.

    Settler declares establishment of 'Gaza Region Jewish Authority'

    Arieh Itzhaky, a resident of the Kfar Yam settlement in Gaza, has declared the establishment of the 'Gaza Region Jewish Authority' during a ceremony held at the Shirat Hayam settlement.

    The ‘Authority’ would act in accordance with international law and would prevent the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, he said. (Ronny Sofer)
