Attorney General Yitzhak Zamir administered on oblique rebuke to the army and police this week by implying that the 40-day blockade imposed on four Druze villages on the Golan Heiqbis earlier this year was an excessive measure to impel, the Druze to accept Israeli identity cards. Zamir is investigating charges made by former Supreme Court Justice Haim Cohen’s Association for Civil Rights in Israel that the army violated the civil rights of the Golan Druze.
