"Even I was surprised," Danni Dayan, who heads the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip, commenting on the military guidelines to enforce the second stage of the building freeze, which entail participation of the air force, use of force and a cellular blackout. "This is quite simply deployment for a military operation against an enemy," Dayan told Army Radio on Sunday morning. "This is not how to enforce a government's decision applying to citizens in a democratic state." Noting Defense Minister's Ehud Barak's address on Thursday, during which he pledged to continue enforcing the moratorium "with nary a falter," Dayan accused Barak of conducting the entire operation "to appease [Labor MKs] Daniel Ben Simon and Ophir Pines." For that reason, Dayan said, Barak chose the platform of a faction meeting for his speech.
