Critics say the new force is effectively a personal militia for Ben-Gvir, a former far-right activist who has been convicted several times for incitement and support for a Jewish terror group. Ben-Gvir says the force is meant to fill in gaps in areas where police are spread thin, including in crime-ridden Arab communities, as well as dealing with Arab-Jewish violence and other issues.The force is expected to enlist hundreds at first and cost millions of dollars. The recruits’ precise duties and authorities were unclear.
Oh, their duties are very clear. That’s why the people are protesting.
