IDF Soldier protests

Jpost: A soldier being honored at a national ceremony on Wednesday refused to shake the hand of Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz in protest against the disengagement from the Gaza Strip and northern Samaria last August. The soldier, Cpl. Hananel Meged said that when he saw Halutz, all he could think of was the bulldozers razing his grandfather's house in Gush Katif. His grandfather passed away shortly after he was relocated from his home. The IDF said that, following the incident, Meged's nomination as an outstanding soldier would be re-examined. The official response stated that such behavior was political, was not appropriate and there was no place for it in the armed forces.......
