Dozens of Yitzhar residents came together for a spontaneous show of affection for a dozen residents of the town who were forced to leave their homes after police handed out administrative restraining orders banning them from Yitzhar. The event was also attended by Samaria Council chairman Gershon Mesika, who praised the dedication of the twelve for their work on behalf of the Land of Israel. He promised that the Council would do whatever it could to help the group, and their families.
The Shin Bet has done a disgusting thing which just should not be done, reminding us of actions usually taken in the third world, Mesika said. The difference between the way these activists are treated and the way rioting Arabs in Bil'in who weekly attack IDF soldiers are treated is too obvious and too painful.
Mesika said that the Shin Bet, police, and others had an agenda against Yitzhar, because they see it as the center of the ideology advocating Jewish settlement in Yesha, and these orders were issued by people who seek to harm that ideology. Fortunately, Mesika, said, the people of Yitzhar are strong, and would not be intimidated.
Speaking at the event, Akiva HaCohen, one of those who received the orders, said that the main reason he was being expelled from the town hopefully just temporarily was because of his work in helping to defend the town, which he is forced to do because the IDF and police don't.

HaShem will “connect” with those who throw people out of their homes and land, as he did with Sharon over Gush Katif.
I hope that whatever those gentlemen did to be barred from Yitzhar, they manage to keep on doing, only more intensively and more successfully and in more yishuvim. The memshala has gone the way of the Jewish Agency during the Mandate, more interested in appeasing the US than in helping the Jews whose homeland this is.
