    The IDF will be tough on all who break laws. Even the Jewish illegal building next to Bil'in will be dealt with, though there is less motivation for it. Although it's outside Haaretz's agenda to report it, the IDF has just dealt with 'hilltop youths' in a manner involving unnecessary violence and force in order to dismantle 4 of their illegal outposts. (http://www.israelnn.com/news.php3?id=95323) I imagine they got beat up more than any of the lefties and Pals at Bil'in. There are illegal constructions which the IDF leaves alone for a while, both on the Jewish and Arab side, but there are some which it takes swift action to dismantle because they are symbols and clear provocations. The IDF?s actions are legitimate, whether it is dealing with the Jews or the Arabs, the left or the right, because the IDF upholds the rule of law. http://www.israelnn.com/news.php3?id=95323
