Nasty Ladies

Machsom Watch, an NGO [a radical, progressive, left-wing advocacy group] that monitors IDF checkpoints in the West Bank, said it was distressed by the IDF's call for former servicemen to come from abroad to serve in the territories.

"A large number of the checkpoints that are called "seam-line" are actually found deep inside the territories and far from the Green Line, and these checkpoints harm the Palestinians' quality of life," the organization said in a statement. "Therefore Machsom Watch is distressed by the fact that volunteers from abroad with good intentions to defend the State of Israel are sent to do missions that do not promote security but actually harm it."
