Document Portrays Major IDF 'Battle' Against Yesha Jews
Settlers: Secret Plan Renders Barak ‘War Criminal'
The secret document, which has clandestinely reached Arutz-7, shows that the army is planning to enforce the government-ordered construction freeze on Jewish towns in Yesha with the help of six brigades, the entire Border Guard forces of Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, Israel Air Forces helicopters and drones, the Shabak (Shin Bet) and police, intelligence forces, and IDF reserve units. The forces are required to submit a daily report to the General Staff and the Defense Minister by 1 PM each day.
The Shomron Residents Committee released a sharp statement in response: “This war plan formulated against the pioneering settlement enterprise in Samaria and Judea, together with the plan against the hesder yeshivot which produce the best of Israel’s soldiers, turns [Defense Minister] Ehud Barak into a war criminal.”
“With the full backing of Netanyahu, who so cynically called us ‘brothers,’ Barak is wasting billions of shekels of the People of Israel’s money in order to promote his own standing in the Israeli left – instead of investing the money in building and developing the Galilee, Samaria, Negev and Judea. We will fight without compromise against Barak’s criminal actions, and we will continue to build our land wherever Arab nationalism threatens to turn it into terrorist states.”
The document states that the plan is on the “General Staff” level, and outlines the plan to destroy new Jewish buildings throughout Judea and Samaria. It appears that the plan is set to be put into operation within two weeks.
“The security forces will display zero tolerance vis-à-vis violence against the forces engaged in enforcing the construction freeze, demolitions and evictions,” the document states.
Other excerpts from the military plan:
“The basic assumption is that no one will agree to leave when required to, and therefore the eviction will require force. The settlers will see these actions as the beginning of the disengagement [i.e., unilateral withdrawal from Judea and Samaria – ed.], and they will therefore attempt to block the demolition in any way they can.”
“There is no concrete information that the settlers will use weapons, but every scenario must be taken into account.”
“The sector must be isolated; very large forces must arrive in order to carry out the eviction, based on the assumption that ‘tremendous force will silence any opposition.’ There must be tactical surprise, and those who disturb the peace must be dealt with in the courts as quickly as possible, including publication of the verdicts.”
“The media must not be allowed to enter the inner circle [of the action].” Some media outlets are already planning to protest to the Supreme Court against this violation of freedom of the press.
“The nearby communities must be totally closed off, and people may be allowed to leave only for urgent needs. Cellular communication will be blocked off for the entire area in order to prevent [the settlers from] alerting and calling each other to arrive at the site.”
Barak's Response: Just Do What You're Told
Defense Minister Ehud Barak responded to the release of the plan and to the criticism as follows: “All that is required of the settlement leaders and the settlers is to fulfill the government decision regarding the freeze of new construction during this defined period [of ten months], and then there will be no need for force or hostilities with the security forces.”
New Border Guard Companies for Freeze Enforcement
The Border Guards are a combined military-law enforcement agency.
Addendum from Ynet:
MK Danon: IDF Plan 'Smells of Disengagement'
MK Eldad: 'Barak Has Gone Insane'
Shalom: 'IDF Battle Plan is Lunacy'
Aharanovich: Leaked Plan Wasn't Coordinated with Me
BEN-ARI: NETANYAHU'S PLAN WILL LEAD TO CIVILIAN REVOLT
Dr. Ben-Ari explained, "One cannot send the army of the people against a segment of the people. It's an explosive more dangerous than the Iranian nuclear [bomb]."
The Civil Rights Organization of Judea and Samaria released this statement: “This plan against the settler public will trample into the dust their most basic human rights. We call upon the government to wake up before it loses its right to be called the only democracy in the Middle East.”
MK Prof. Aryeh Eldad (National Union): “The police and army are cooperating in a rape of the settler public. This set of commands is formulated as if the intention is to conquer an enemy country. It shows the insanity of subjugating the Central Command, its intelligence branches, and the Shabak together with the Air Force for the purpose of destroying Jewish homes.”
“The crime is two-fold,” Eldad said: “Using the IDF for a political mission against Jews, and not using it against the Arab enemy. Netanyahu and his entire government are to blame for their collaboration.”
Even MK Ophir Akunis (Likud), a political ally of Prime Minister Netanyahu, came out against the plan, and MK Tzipi Hotovely, also of the Likud, called on Netanyahu to "intervene and revoke this disproportionate deployment."
MK Dr. Michael Ben-Ari (National Union) said the document is “shocking” and “shows that the Likud government has declared war on the settlers. Bibi [Netanyahu] is continuing the path of [comatose former Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon who destroyed the IDF in his war against the Jews and left a crushed IDF to deal with Hizbullah [in the Second Lebanon War].”
“The IDF’s function is to fight our enemies and to prepare for that,” Ben-Ari continued, “and whoever changes its function, thus tears the nation in half and destroys the State.”
Danny Dayan, the Chairman of the Yesha Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria, said, “This plan is simply a deployment for an army operation against an enemy.”
IDF: Published Plan Was a 'First Draft'
yes daisy as it says in Zecharia 14... "and Yehuda will fight alongside Gog against Yerushalyim..." and this is explained out of fear... not really wanting to... and now we know clearly more than chazal knew... that this will be the case because of the reev rav/unjewish jews commanding our precious army of Hashem against our wishes... their wishes (idf) and Hashem's wishes... but they will do tshuvah at the last minute and not be destroyed along with the slime of gog... both the jewish slime and goyish esav/yishmael slime of gog's army... because our guys are being forced into the war against our own people and land and they don't want to follow the slime orders... they will all be spared... but not the slime erev rav unjewish jews who have usurped Hashem's land and army... nik.out...
Thank you nik, I was looking for this pasuk last night and couldn't remember it: I will include it in my title now, as was my original wish.
SAYONARA, SECULAR STATE OF ISRAEL. WELCOME MOSHIACH!

Columnist Warns Barak: We Won't Forget
"After he destroyed his party and left it bleeding hatred and divided, Ehud Barak is more than ready to destroy the country, too, if we only let him,” Benn wrote. “He is already dividing the IDF and pitting its finest knit-kippah combat soldiers against it. He is already traveling to Turkey... and trying to convince us, against the will of the Foreign Minister who is trying to block the move, that the anti-Semitic Erdogan can be an excellent broker between us and Syria.”
"Barak is also maneuvering the Prime Minister of Israel, after long talks with Obama and Mitchell, into a damaging and grave partial freeze, which Netanyahu never wanted from the outset, and promises to give Abu Mazen at least what he already gave Arafat: agreement to a near-full withdrawal from all of Judea and Samaria and full territorial repayment inside tiny Israel, in accordance with the terrible formula offered by Olmert, who was willing to sell everything in order to be liked by the Left, in the hope that he would be 'etrogized' as Sharon was etrogized.”
In Jewish tradition, an etrog is a citron fruit which is kept wrapped and stored in a special box throughout the Sukkot holiday. The term has recently also come to denote a politician who enjoys special treatment from the media and law enforcement establishment, because he is carrying out policies that are to their liking.
Barak desperately needs “etrog” status now, Benn states. “We shall remember the PR firm established by his wife after he was already appointed Defense Minister, promising all sorts of millionaires to utilize all sorts of connections for them. We will remember the State Comptroller's investigation about sums in millions that were transferred within his family, after he was appointed Defense Minister. We shall remember the luxurious hotel in Paris. We shall remember his illegal Philippine housemaid.”
"How is it that he never bothered to ask his wife and find out if the Filipina was legal or not? How could he not understand that there was something wrong with his wife's PR firm, when she promised to make use of connections with the world's rich and powerful people? And why does his party hate him so much? Can this person be trusted with all of the diplomatic and security matters? This is a man who now wants to rob the public of its right to determine, through referendum, if it should – G-d forbid – retreat from the Golan. Barak, being Barak, expects us to trust his judgment, without bothering to keep us in the loop. After all, this is the man who was about to sell Arafat everything, without asking anyone, at a time when it had become completely clear that the nation would boot him from office. Barak is a danger to himself and trips himself up all the time, but this is something we can live with. The problem is that he trips up Israel as well.”
'Barak Only Understands Force'
"Rabbi [Chaim] Druckman is an important personage but he is least suited for the goals,” Bachrach told Arutz Sheva Sunday, referring to the head of the Hesder Yeshiva Union. “What we need now is not a man of peace but a man of war."
“Just as we must not exhibit weakness before the Palestinians, so we must not be weak with Barak," Bachrach continued. "The State-oriented attitude approach is not the proper one at this time. When the doctors went on strike, no one asked them how far they were willing to go in their protests, so why do people who fight for their homes have to draw boundaries and red lines to their struggle? This is not Barak's private army and we will not be threatened by him.”
The yeshiva heads should be the ones threatening Barak and not the other way around, Bachrach said: “As long as he does not take action against the [leftist] lecturers who incite in the universities, he should not be taking action against us. If he does not want the Hesder yeshivas, we will be the ones to throw the 'divorce papers' at him; we will not wait for him to hand it to us.”
Asked whom he had in mind as tough representatives, Bachrach mentioned Rabbis Dov Lior and Yisrael Ariel. He voiced doubt regarding the Hesder yeshivas' ability to handle the crisis properly. “I did not see them speaking out until now, except for Rabbi [Eliezer] Waldman. It is time to fight and stop being such nice guys.”
The heads of the Hesder yeshivas convened Sunday morning under the leadership of Rabbi Chaim Druckman to try and find a solution to the crisis between the Defense Ministry and Har Bracha yeshiva. Barak decided to stop the 'hesder' arrangement with the yeshiva, because of the opinions of its head, Rabbi Eliezer Melamed, regarding conscientious objection in case of an order to expel Jews from their homes.
