13. It's not the regime that is brutal, it's this group of settlers
They were welcomed into Israel and they refused that welcome.

Israel offered to resettle all of the evacuees in southern Israel, however, this particular group of extremely hard-right settlers refused such an arrangement and demanded to live in the West Bank.

They believe that in being there they are, in their words, turing a question mark into an exclaimation point. That is to say, they don't plan to move again and are hopeful that a less conciliatory government will take hold in Israel in the near future.

That is why I think it's going to get ugly.

It should be noted that the all of the other settlers formerly of Gaza were moved into southern Israel.
