And it starts up, once again...

There is a small Yishuv in Gush Etzion called Ma'aleh Rechavam, named after assasinated Minister Rechavam Ze'evi (HY'D). It numbers about 5 familes and another 11 singles. The Civilian Administration (Minhal Ezrachi, the army body that is in charge of administering Yehuda and Shomron) decided now would be a good time to give out expulsion orders to the residents. Why does it seem to be a good time? 25% of the residents aren't around to do anything about it. They're still in the army having been given emergency call up orders (Tzav 8). 5 where called up and an additional 2 are still in their mandatory service. 3 are still in Lebanon, currently. They are unable to fight the expulsion orders, due to their location.
Meanwhile, the handing out of the expulsions orders has been pushed off for a week due to the PR problem this has caused.

Soldiers fighting for their lives, going when the Army calls, comes back to find the Army has stabbed them in the back. It seems the Minhal Ezrachi is unwilling to comment on this, since they do not discuss ongoing operations as it would endanger the security forces.

Of course, kicking innocent people out of their houses doesn't endanger anyone, as we've seen.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael
