Taking to the Streets: Israeli Protest Movements Part 4

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

The Government Against the Settlers: Gaza 2005

The decision by the right-wing Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to unilaterally disengage from Gaza brought thousands of police and army personnel into conflict with an even larger number of settlers. There were dramatic images of Israeli personnel removing Israeli citizens from their homes and synagogues. The question arose whether religious soldiers would disobey military orders as a result of the former Chief Rabbi’s ruling that an order to take part in the evacuation of Jews from their homes in order to give over the land to non-Jews is an order that is against the religion of our holy Torah and forbidden to fulfill.
