Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett was slammed on Thursday evening when he said during a television interview that he would not be willing to evict Jews from their homes.
Bennett, who served in elite IDF units including Sayeret Matkal and continues to serve to this day as a reservist, said during an interview with the "Mishal Cham" program on Channel 2 that if he ever receives an order to evict Jews, he would ask his commander to release him from his position. Bennett said he would be willing to serve time in prison over this issue.
"If I receive an order to evict a Jew from his home, my conscience will not allow it," said Bennett. "I would ask my commander to release me."
He then added, "Sorry, I cannot enter a Jew's home and evict him." Bennett noted that as an MK he will work to thwart any plan that could hurt the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
The comments were condemned by Likud Minister Moshe Ya'alon, a former IDF of Chief of Staff, who said, "I am appalled by Bennett's comments, which endanger the IDF and Israeli democracy."
Bennett later clarified in a status he posted to his Facebook page that his remarks were in no way advocating for soldiers to refuse their commanders' orders.
"As one who led fighters in operations and in battle, I oppose refusing orders with all my soul and heart," he wrote. "I fulfilled all the orders in my 22 years in the army and will continue to do so. Personally I simply cannot evict a family from its home and would ask my commanders to release me from that. I pray and will work with all my might to ensure that the Israeli government will never evict families... "

Send Soros over to evict them.
He would have an orgasm doing it.
Like he did for Hitler.
Too bad we can’t get more conservative American candidates with like backbone.
It is amazing how Israel has survived this long when it was betrayed by the despicable Moshe Dayan in June 1967 and the evil Yitzhak Rabin in 1992 (yimakh shemo ve zikhro).
You might say that at the time land for piece was an idea not yet tried, that Moshe Dayan opened the door for trying, and Rabin tried it. But it has now been tried, has failed utterly, and ought to be abandoned immediately, and reversed the next time IDF have to open up another can of wupass.
