Kadima MK and Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee member Nachman Shai on Friday sent a letter to Defense Minister Ehud Barak where he wrote that "the
soldiers of the Kfir Brigade placed a serious challenge to the IDF yesterday.
They announced they would refuse orders to evacuate a settlement if the order
would be made. The IDF has no room for soldiers who refuse to carry out orders,
and I expect that as the defense minister you will instruct the chief of general
staff to take immediate disciplinary measures against [these soldiers] in order
to clarify that Israel is a state governed by law and soldiers must also obey
The IDF has announced that the recruits will be punished. It is business as usual when the State of Israel punishes its heroes and strengthens those like Nachman Shai who have no vision or sense.
Kol HaKavod boys!
Shabbat Shalom l'kulam!
