    The religious settlers and their "Hilltop Youth" friends proved to be a paper tiger. In the end, the great majority of them could not find the courage or will to resist the security forces, the same forces who have bled in large numbers to protect them all these years. The door is now open to evacuating outposts in the West Bank. Hebron should go next. Or let those 500 Gush Emunim wackos PAY for their own security... hire a brigade of 5000 private security guards. Whatever happens, Tzahal is no longer a Settler Defense Force.
