My name is Moshe Keinan and I am a "settler" from the community of Shiloh. My only son, may G-d avenge his blood, was also a resident of Shiloh. He was a fighter in the Givati Brigade's commando unit, an officer in the anti-terror commando unit.

During the day he instructed his cadets and at night he would go out at the head of his team of soldiers to capture barbaric terrorists.

Since last night I have had no rest, I couldn't sleep and couldn't calm down.

I and my family, who gave the dearest one to me, my son, who sacrificed his young life and sanctified G-d's name when he fell protecting his people and his country, are we worse than the Hezbollah?

I want to tell you, small-minded journalist that you are,you are worse than the Hezbollah and not because it is impossible to kill you, as you wrote about us. We don't kill and evict Jews, we only kill our enemies.

You are worse because of your shameful opinions, because of your hard heart. You are lucky that you live in a Jewish and democratic country where there is freedom of speech even for depraved people like you.

In the article, entitled "More dangerous than Hezbollah”, Klein slammed the Religious Zionist sector, claiming they are more of a threat than murderous Arab terrorists or the Hezbollah terror movement in Lebanon, which has killed hundreds of Jews worldwide since the 1980s.

"The national religious [public] is dangerous, more dangerous than Hezbollah, more than drivers ramming their cars into people, or girls with scissors. The Arabs can be killed, they cannot.

"What do they want? To take control of the state and cleanse it of Arabs. If asked, they will deny it ... They know that it is too early to be so obvious. Do not believe their denials. Their religious nationalism is extreme nationalism, enveloped in a pious reverence. It permeates the education system, is getting stronger in the army and affects the Supreme Court. They are already on their way to us, another moment and they break down the door.

"I have more in common with the Eskimo of Alaska than with all the [national-religious leaders] and everything they represent. What do I have to do with Smotrich? What have I got to do with Israel Harel? What do I have to do with those who want to achieve freedom for themselves at the expense of someone else's freedom? He did not mean us, but we are the ones who will have to get used to it," adds Klein.
