The Independent

quote:
The outpost is unauthorised and illegal, and Ariel Sharon, the Prime Minister, has promised to investigate.

The newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth said the six soldiers, who are performing the reserve duty all men are obliged to fulfil every year until their forties, were so unhappy that they clubbed together and offered to pay for the settler, Yossi Ayalon, to move to a hotel in Israel. He refused.

27 THOUSAND pounds a month? Good grief!

I hope they at least relocate the guy to another settlement or back to Israel proper rather than continue this incredible farce.

Or they could just tell him, "You have three months. We will provide security service until such-and-such a date, and after that you're on your own. You can decide whether you want to stay or move."
