"It Feels Like We're Back to the Disengagement Days"


Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir threw his hat into the ring in expressing suspicions that the new state prosecutor (state attorney) Shai Nitzan is prejudiced against residents of Judea and Samaria and their allies. Ben-Gvir told Arutz Sheva news "what we warned would happen is now happening today. There is a feeling we're back to the days of [the Disengagement from] Gush Katif."

Ben-Gvir complained that "resources and energies are directed" toward minor issues such as "three girls caught with stickers in the Old City." 

Critics say Nitzan played an active role in the Prosecution's decision to carry out mass arrests of demonstrators against the government's removal of Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria in the 2005 Disengagement, and to close investigations against police officers who used violence against the demonstrators.
