    is that in order to reclaim its good standing(among israelis), the idf and its subversives will do so at the expense of the palestinians, who are for the most part defenseless against them(and whom israelis seem to consider expendable), by creating "incidents" that will require harsh measures and overwhelming retaliation. the leanings of the idf should be no secret; nor should there be any secret who actually controls israeli policy. the idf stands alone; it simply ignores any edicts it deems unfit(witness hebron), while aggressively carrying out the ones it espouses(the oppression of the palestinians). there's a malevolent force that controls the idf. an entity all to itself. whether it resides within it or not might be questioned...but that it exists cannot. its certainly NOT israel's elected government. which leaves 'zionism' as the most likely beast.
