Rightists protest evacuation orders near home of GOC Central Command
From Ha'Aretz:

Dozens of right-wing extremists on Sunday demonstrated outside the home of GOC Central Command Yair Naveh, who issued 19 restraining orders to settlers forcing them to evacuate their homes in illegal West Bank outposts set to be dismantled.

The demonstrators, who plan to hold a long and continuous protest, handed out fliers exclaiming, "how would you feel if police knocked on your door, and gave you a restraining order from your own home?" and "dear citizen, do you know of the orders that were handed to your neighbors?

--snip--

Eighteen of the settlers that were handed restraining orders said they were planning a larger demonstration next week. The 19th settler, Ma'on Farm resident Elad Keller, did not attend the protest because he is currently in police custody for refusing to evacuate his home.

--snip--


"how would you feel if police knocked on your door, and gave you a restraining order from your own home?"

Um, like a Palestinian?

1. Police knock on the door?
I'm pretty sure I don't like that, as the possibility gets more real here every day.

2. the Israeli military makes phone calles to Palestinians, then bombs
the home. They do this in land the Israeli Forces occupy illegally.

The settlements were all erected illegally, in land taken from Palestinians. So what do the settlers expect? These tiny illegal settlements (representing just a small fraction of the total illegal settlement program) are being evacuated so that Palestinians may be concentrated into small enclaves (bantustans). It really just makes it easier for the Israeli military to control the West Bank.
