Israeli Far Right

The possibility of Rabin-redux, an assassination of an Israeli PM by a far right settlement defender, has recently been raised by former PM Shimon Peres.

Sharon's plan, though supported by a strong majority of Israelis in opinion polls, has infuriated many in his hard-line Likud Party and his former allies in the settlers' movement.

Opponents recently have begun waging strident verbal attacks on the prime minister. Opposition leader Shimon Peres said they are reminiscent of the poisonous political climate that preceded that 1995 assassination of then-Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
Now comes a more comprehensive Christian Science Monitor piece on the possibility of far right Israeli soldiers refusing to follow orders requiring the removal of settlers.

Very disconcerting. See also BBC, CSM.
