the new york times today reports security forces in israel are contemplating using draconian detention laws against right wing israeli militants.
the militants are threatening violence against ariel sharon, because of the deal he’s struck, where he has agreed to force all 8,500 settlers in gaza to end their occupation of the disputed territory.
till now, only palestinians have been detained under these preventitive detention laws.
the security forces are justifying their call, citing the assasination of yitsak rabin ten years ago by a rightwinger opposed to rabins moves towards peace with the palestinians.
