Ultra-nationalists see their quest to remain in Gaza as a clash between good and evil Nitai Wolfman is the kind of person Israel wants to keep out of the Gaza Strip. But in his case, it is too late. The burly, dark-eyed 20 year old believes he is on the right side in a conflict of good versus evil. God 'did not give us territory in order for us to give it away to gentiles', says Mr Wolfman, about Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plans to withdraw from the enclave. He spoke after settlers clashed with police, while setting up a tent camp for ultra-nationalists bent on thwarting the withdrawal, due to start next month. Mr Wolfman said he was dissatisfied that during the confrontation, in which settlers pushed security forces and blocked a vehicle, no one had slugged a policeman. 'What was needed was to come to blows with the police. That's what they understand,' he said. Earlier, as police pulled away, he went further, exclaiming: 'Put a bullet in the head of every one of them. Each one, from the traffic department to the Shabak [Internal Security Service].' The confrontation was sparked when police came to Shirat Hayam to arrest Noam Livnat, a fundamentalist West Bank leader and brother of Israeli Education Minister Limor Livnat. Mr Wolfman says the Israeli government and police are dominated by 'leftists' who despise settlers, are trying to impose a dictatorship in Israel and are intent on 'selling out' to the Palestinians. Mr Wolfman and like-minded young men are a potential nightmare not only for the Israeli government, but for the settler leadership, which is trying to win the hearts and minds of Israeli public opinion. Despite Wednesday's closure of Gaza to outsiders, which the army says is aimed precisely at thwarting an influx of extremists, some settler supporters are still vowing to reach their brethren in Gaza either by circumventing army checkpoints or mustering public pressure through a mass march tomorrow. Asher Mivtzari, a leader of the Kfar Darom settlement, where another tent camp is being built, says the struggle should be limited to 'non-violent civil disobedience'. But, he says, the government has planted 'agent provocateurs' among opponents of the withdrawal, to undermine them in the eyes of the Israeli public. Explaining the ideology of religious settlers, Mr Mivtzari says the planned Gaza withdrawal goes against what he believes is the progression of Jews towards redemption in a messianic age. The progression started with Zionism a century ago and intensified with Israel's victory in the 1967 Six-Day war, when it captured the West Bank and Gaza Strip and thereby came to possession of the biblical Land of Israel, he says. 'The redemption process can be expedited or delayed, it depends on our actions,' he says. 'And this path [of withdrawal] hurts it very much.' 'This government has lost its Jewish heart,' he adds. Mr Wolfman, who comes from the West Bank settlement of Maale Levona, gave up studying for a college scholarship exam in order to devote himself full-time to the cause. 'I don't have time for my studies and they don't even interest me,' he says. 'What interests me is the Land of Israel.'
