End of Protest to Free Anarchists to Other Fronts


Member of Knesset Aryeh Eldad (National Union) said Sunday, that the end of the social-justice protests would mean the return of anarchists to protest Israel's security fence near the Samarian Arab villages of Na'alin and Bi'lin, as well as other confrontation points in Judea and Samaria. Interviewed on Arutz Sheva's Hebrew journal, Professor Eldad said an Israel Defense Forces officer told him the reduction in anarchist activity was recorded in recent weeks and the expectation was that, "We'll return to meeting them at the centers of friction. They'll return to torching fields, harming farmers and shepherds, and confronting Israel Defense Forces units."

Eldad felt that given this month's Palestinian Authority's unilateral statehood bid, "Certainly, ahead of September, they intend to set the area ablaze."
