Israeli settlers opposed to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s Gaza withdrawal plan claim to have recruited sympathizers in the military. “We have our people embedded within their ranks, and when it comes down to the operations, we know every single detail,” a pro-settler activist told the Jerusalem Post on Thursday, referring to withdrawals from the Gaza Strip and northern West Bank slated for later this year. According to the unnamed source, a “large number” of right-wing sympathizers in the military and border police will refuse orders to evacuate settlements when the time comes.
