The Peace Now movement on Wednesday criticized a letter of support written by reservists from the IDF's Shimshon Battalion of the Kfir Brigade, which expressed support for two battalion soldiers who had publicly protested the battalion's role in the evacuation of the West Bank settlement of Homesh. "Rightist elements are making a lofty effort to divide the IDF, and turn the Shimson Battalion into a private voice for the settlers," Peace Now said in a statement. "It's up to the IDF to remove from reserve duty every soldier who supports insubordination, and tries to make the IDF political."
