Being a TIPH official (international observers in Hebron) is shit
Rank: First Sergeant
Unit: Nahal, 50th Battalion

period: 2005 - 2006

Being a TIPH official (international observers in Hebron) is shit. It’s another classic example of more shit in Hebron. TIPH regularly get a kind of warm welcome there. Whenever they come down from Abu Sneina, a stone or two at their car. A little present.

By the settlers? Of course. Just because they’re TIPH.

And what do you do? I can describe what I told one of them. I’ll tell it in Hebrew. He says to me: “I’ve just had stones thrown at me.”

Where do you meet him? He comes back to Gross Square. I tell him: “Yes, I know, that’s why I was summoned here.” Then I say to him: “Okay, listen, you know that in the end, they’re under 14 years of age, so there’s nothing I can do.” And then, in these words: “I know, I just wanted you to know.” He’s already aware of it, and there’s simply nothing to be done. Absolutely nothing.

So, in general, what are your instructions about settlers? Nothing. Ask my deputy company commander, who’s really dying to do something against them, what the instructions are. Every time the TIPH or CPT activists (Christian Peacemaking Team) come around – of course, this is before we totally barred leftist activists or such like from entering Avraham Avinu – once they came in and I told them: “Do me a favor, just don’t go in there. I can’t be responsible for what will happen to you”. The funniest thing was a whole group of CPT activists who went through, about 20 people, when I was commander at Gross. So I say: “What are you doing here?” You can’t mistake the CPTers with their awful red hat. So they go: “Why, is there a problem?” I ask: “Have you coordinated this with anyone? Told [the army] you’re touring here?” A huge group, I mean, you couldn’t hide them or anything. I was literally scared something would happen to them.

Where were they walking, in the wholesale market? No, just along David Route. Shuhada Street, for you.

Are there any instructions about the Bnei Avraham groups (Israeli peace organization)? Bnei Avraham come, naturally they’re not allowed into all of Avraham Avinu. I’m dying to understand how things got to be so that a Jew isn’t allowed to walk around a Jewish public area. For leftists…

There’s an instruction barring them from Avraham Avinu? Yes. An explicit instruction not to let any leftist or international organization activists enter the whole of Beit Hadassah, Avraham Avinu etc. (Jewish settlements in Hebron). It’s a very strange instruction, for all of those reasons. Okay.
