    The IDF and the settlers are two sides of the same coin, gone is the old IDF which was responsible and answerable to a responsible government with a semblance of common sense. Today, the IDF is answerable to Mirkaz H'arav, to the gurus of Gush Emunim and Chabadists and other Talmudic circles which uphold the ideals of Eretz Yisrael Ha'shlema..which means expulsion, extermination or enslavement of non-Jews. Hence the closure of streets in the face of Palestinians.. And, as always, the pretext is ready: terror. And the courts are paralyzed...because when non-Jews are involved, there is apathy, a lot of apathy.
