As of 7:30 am Israel time today, there is a compromise between the heads of Moetzet Yesha (representing the settlers) and the IDF (who are supposed to destroy nine house in Amona, close to the settlement of Ofra). The compromise is that the soldiers will withdraw, and the settlers will destroy the houses themselves over the course of the next few days.
The Supreme Court has given a restraining order to the army to wait to act, until a group of three judges will discuss the compromise.
The only one who is virulently against the compromise is none other than our acting Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert.
The houses will be destroyed, the army will not have to take part in dragging citizens out of their homes - and can take care of much more important things like finding terrorists before they get close to their intended targets.
The only thing that will not happen is the dramatic photographs - which seem to slake the thirst of those who hate us (settlers) more than anything else.
The rest of the country, according to polls, do not want any more unilateral withdrawls. The pain of the last summer was not felt just by the right.
Too bad Olmert's thirst to look like he is tough on settlers is stronger than his desire for peace - between the Jews.
Update: 1:45pm Effie Eitam, injured by police horse states: I never thought I would be hurt by Jewish cops.
