    The worst 6 months of my 3 years full-time service was when I was stationed in Hebron. I am against disengagement but the settlers are a bunch of crazies. Go into any Hebron Elementary School and the teachers are teaching the children to hate Arabs daily. And we in Israel cry about a little anti-semitism. All the time the settlers were encouraging us to shoot children who were not throwing stones. More than Yaalon, the crazy settlers wanted to burn genocide into the minds of the Palestinians. The settler girls are taught to spit at, kick, slap & throw water & refuse on soldiers; to call us Nazis and Palestinian lovers. The army of Israel should protect Israelis but these crazies in Hebron are not Jews. They are full-blown terrrorists whose movement should be broken once and for all.
