If the IDF is in the territories to protect the settlers, then why do the settlers have to be armed too? Is the IDF in incapable or unable to protect them? I have no doubt that the soldiers are well able to police your settlers, the fact that they dont and never stop them when they stone or harass or shoot at Palestinians is probably due to the fact that they dont see anything wrong with it, not that they are too weak to stop them. Who protects the Palestinians, I wonder, who are attacked by settlers. Certainly not the IDF and a Palestinian policeman would never dare to interfere against settlers, knowing fully well the futility and dire consequences of such an action. I agree with ElBirawi, more guns is the last thing we need in this conflict.
