Marzel Won’t Miss General Alon

Brigadier-General Nitzan Alon is “the most left-wing commander the IDF has ever had,” longtime land of Israel activist Baruch Marzel said Tuesday, on the occasion of Alon’s replacement as commander of the Judea and Samaria division.

“The political persecution that Brigadier-General Alon created is what pushed people to support ‘price tag,’” Marzel accused. Alon angered many in Judea and Samaria by calling to investigate IDF soldiers from the region, and by describing other residents of the area as “radical settlers.”
