Reach out and touch someone....

Things start to heat up and of course given some of the settlers who are being disengaged are former US residents, and the past huge financial support that came from private US citizens to the settlers some feel it necessary to act.

How? Private home phone numbers of Israel Police officers were somehow obtained and passed on to people here in the US who have been calling them at home to try to encourage them to not participate in the disengagement.

It's not working, so I'd say the answer to the other known phone jingle "Can you hear me now?" might be, No.

The Israeli bureaucrats responsible for leaking the phone numbers of police officers should be ferreted out and fired.

I remember as a child of 7 seeing the shocked and angered look on my dad's face (he was a Detroit police officer for 25 years) when he found out about a vicious hood driving past our house.

Seems the perp - who my dad had helped bust, and who tried to fight my dad and 3 other cops when they went to arrest him - found out where we lived, and was engaged in a not-so-subtle intimidation campaign.

How did he learn this info? Who knows; there were more than a few Detroit cops on the take in the 1960s and 1970s, so the leak could have come from anywhere.

We had to move really quickly to a new house.

This type of tactic just sickens me. It is one thing to stop what a person may think is an injustice. It is quite the other to ask, persuade, or just plain demand that an officer, of law or military, to ignore the law and make himself a potential criminal.

I agree with HT, the people responsible should be found and fired.

Gee, I wonder why this tactic isn't working. What would the phone call sound like? "Hi, I'm here halfway around the world in the United States with my cushy six firgured income asking you not to participate in the disengagement as so ordered by your superior officers. I know that you are on the front line and are risking your life everyday with little pay to show for it, but our people should stick together. What? Oh. I'm not sure the last time I went to temple. Hello?"
