Disarming Israeli Settlers?

David Mustard forwarded this and the link below:
[the Defense Ministry] notified Yoni that his weapon's license, permitting him to carry an M-16 rifle, had been voided and that he was now classified as "weapons-negated". The reason: unknown. . . . The result: yesterday, Yoni was forced to 'return' his rifle to the authorities that be. In other words, Hebron's security chief is forbidden to carry the primary tool of his trade, that tool which is used to offer protection and defense, should the need arise, to any of the Hebron community's hundreds of residents or thousands of visitors.

. . . Yoni has not been recently arrested, indicted, tried or convicted of any serious crimes. Not only isn't Yoni suspected of "Jewish terrorism", to the contrary, he has proven his heroism. Two years ago, when terrorists struck, killing twelve men, including nine officers and soldiers and three Kiryat Arba civilians, Yoni was one of the first people on the scene, and put his life on the line to save others. . . .

He wasn't the only one ordered to hand in his rifle. So, too, were the security officers of Yeshivat Shavei Hevron, Kiryat Arba and southern Hebron Hills community Ma'ale Hever.
