I have seen several reports wherein they state that Sharon has employed non-Jewish Russians as shock troops against the Jews of Gaza/Gush Katif. That includes housing, training, and supplying them with rolling stock (trucks) to haul off the Jewish resistors. Anyone with specific information, I would appreciate your response.

I do recall publishing on what I believed the Labor Left was planning with the non-Jewish Arabs of Arafat's Terrorists in the early 1980s. The objective of meetings with Arafat was to similarly eject the Jews of Judea, Samaria, the Golan Heights, and half of Jerusalem.

The plan was to move in phases such as making it difficult to get building permits, slowing down installation of water pipes, electricity grids, sewage lines, roads, etc. Then there was the bribery phase where Settlers were to be seduced with payments to move out. There was a period of what was to be the use of military force.

Finally, there were the "shock troops" stage, wherein the Settlers would be faced with Arafat's PLO who could make the roads so dangerous that the Settlers would be forced out. While Yitzhak Rabin is not around to testify, Shimon Peres - among others - could be called upon to testify but, of course, such investigations do not usually take place in Israel.

Whether Sharon is gathering gentile Shock Troops in advance of the Police and Army is something to be revealed. If anyone has accurate and provable information on employing Russian Gentiles living in Israel as Shock Troops to terrify the Jews of Gaza/Gush Katif, it should be made known. Using mercenaries is not unique to such Jewish tyrants as Herod was in his days.

Sharon has already poisoned much of the Police Force with orders to beat protestors, releasing all their normal inhibitions. We have reports already of beatings where ribs were broken, heads cracked, with eye and hearing disability. With disappearing files on the injured. This is the stuff that Jews were to have escaped from in Russia, Germany, France, Poland, etc. Once a KGB style Police Force takes hold, then the entire nation will suffer brutality - which Sharon, no doubt, means to be merely a brief period of a Police State tactics.

Have you ever noticed that Jews only discover they have been taken only after they have been taken? We have lost a lot of Jews because we seem to avoid seeing the problem, let alone acting in time to save ourselves. What's worse is that we feel guilty when we think to question anyone who rises to the top. Just hang on with bleeding fingers until one day you get the job. The Title doesn't make you a good person or an angel. Unless you really are but, then again you wouldn't be a problem.
