IDF arming and training Israeli settlers as 'mass disorder' expected in September
Haaretz ^ | 8/29/11 | Chaim Levinson

Posted on 08/29/2011 7:50:52 PM PDT by Nachum

The IDF has conducted detailed work to determine a “red line” for each settlement in the West Bank, which will determine when soldiers will be ordered to shoot at the feet of Palestinian protesters if the line is crossed. It is also arming settlers with tear gas and stun grenades as part of the defense operation.

The IDF is currently in the process of finalizing its preparations for Operation Summer Seeds, whose purpose is to ready the army for September and the possibility of confrontations with Palestinians following the expected vote in favor of Palestinian statehood at the UN General Assembly.

Yep...I'd call half the population missing their right feet due to bullet trauma a "mass disorder".

Coming from Haaretz, I have serious questions about the veracity of the news. However, if the IDF is arming the settlers, would the author be happier having the Palestinians massacre the settlers?

I hope the Israelis have the supplies to last through Jan of 2013. This Administration will give less aid than they gave the Libyan rebels.

I’m also sure our vote at the UN will properly reflect the wishes of the American people. I pray God’s blessings upon Israel and the US until we can replace this Administration.

If you are using a high powered rifle against a large crowd on rocky ground, aiming at their feet will cause more hits than aiming directly at them.

Looks like it’s going to be an interesting fall.
I’m ready, the IDF is ready, the settlers are ready.
Bring it.

You give 0 too much credit. I would not be surprised if he ordered the IAF be shot down.

If every Israeli settler takes out 20 “Palestinian” rioter then the problem should be resolved quickly.

Back in the day, you never saw a settler without either an Uzi or an M1 Carbine slung over their shoulder.

An uzi is a great weapon for clearing trenches or rooms but for anything beyond 50 meters range you need a rifle .

Give them .30 carbines or old school sks carbines good to 200 yards. It would stop the riot in short order. however since the govt. doesn’t trust the citizenry it won’t happen.

it should not be for a government to trust it’s citizenry , but for a citizenry to trust their government .

By works

Perhaps it’s time for Israelis then to take such matters into their own hands . As with Americans .

If there were no Jewish people in Israel, but westerners, French, Gemans, Swedish, Poles, etc. the aabs would still be opposed to Israel.

“Uzis are for chicks.”

Have you ever fired one in full-auto? The one I shot had a silencer no less; no barrel climb. Slicker than owl Shi’ite. I would love to own one.

I have.

They were primarily a personal defense weapon for women soldiers working in clerical or other non-combat positions, as a favored attack method of arabs is to go shoot up hospitals, offices, or other softer targets.

It’s small, packs a decent punch, but is a REMF weapon.

I’ve never understood why they garnered the reputation they have.
