    The Posse Comitatus Act was passed to eliminate the Army's involvement in law enforcment in the South after the Civil War. Today facing the threat of terrorism and the lack of border security many are questioning the wisdom of keeping the Army away from involvement. In any case there are a couple of key points, first Gaza is not part of Israel and the primary force for the last 38 years for maintaining the law ther has been the IDF. No all of a sudden its wrong because the law they are carrying out displeases some people. That is very hypocritical. Second, Israel has no equivalent to the National Guard which can be clled out by the individual states whenever needed for riot control or natural disasters. The only equivalent force in Israel is the IDF. I think Mr Arens argument is merely a smoke screen for his obvious contempt for the disengagement.
