The Jerusalem Post reports:
IDF OC Human Resources Department Maj.-Gen. Elazar Stern received a harsh welcome on Saturday when he attended his daughter’s sheva brachot celebration at the Elazar settlement, with locals hurling epithets and spittle at him, it was reported on Sunday.
During morning prayers at the local synagogue, one of the members of the congregation stood up and wished the families mazal tov – and then proceeded to bless the IDF soldiers who refused to follow orders to evict settlers from Hebron’s marketplace last week.
When Stern exited the synagogue after the prayer service, a number of residents approached and began shouting at him, calling him “traitor” and “trash” and accusing him of destroying hesder yeshivot. Some of the residents spat on him.
One woman shouted, “It’s because of you that there are widows and orphans!”
I know I’ve asked this question recently, but what is wrong with this world?
