The Secular Government needs to come to a reckoning about the whole issue of asking religious Jews to evict other religious Jews from Historically and Religiously significant locations.

(IsraelNN.com) Former Kach activist and resident of the Tel Rumeida neighborhood in Hevron Baruch Marzel says that IDF refusal is spreading.

About 30 soldiers of the elite Duchifat unit refused orders to secure a road leading to Hevron ahead of the planned forced eviction of Jews from the Shalhevet neighborhood Monday. Five of them have been sentenced to 28 days confinement on their base and face a fine and removal from combat status.
