Did you Raise a Hand Against a Soldier?!

At the beginning of the settlement enterprise, the settlers encountered opposition from the army, and they set up several tents, bringing themselves into conflict with the army. Our Rabbi Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehuda Kook called on all of them to return. Prominent rabbis and professors sat in the Rav's home, and expressed a unanimous opinion that they had to go back there.
Then Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehuda's voice thundered: “Did anybody raise a hand against a soldier?” and everyone remained silent. They were frightened, and they did not respond. Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehuda repeated in a thunderous voice: “Did anybody raise a hand?” Once more, everyone remained silent. Still Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehuda did not relent, and he shouted, “Did they raise a hand against a soldier?” Then they admitted that they had, in fact, and Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehuda replied, “In that case, stay here. Don't go back there.”
Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehuda didn't let them go back there. Only after he had spoken to them on this topic at length, and they had committed themselves not to hit a soldier, did he approve their returning, and he then spoke very positively about the settlement drive and about the need to arouse the healthy forces everywhere. (I heard this story from Rabbi Ya'akov Levanon, and it may well be that I don't recall all the details well).
Obviously, the truth must be stated that one is not just forbidden to hit soldiers, but to strike any Jew, and Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehuda made that point before the State's establishment in his article, “I Am Seeking My Brethren” [Hebrew], where he laid out rules of behavior for public struggles: No hitting, no degradations, no hatred (Le-Netivot Yisrael 1:106). This is an accepted halachic principle: One does not perform a mitzvah by way of a sin. One does not perform a mitzvah that brings a sin in its train. If it is possible to do the mitzvah without a sin, then we remained obligated to do it. Yet if it is impossible, then such performance of the mitzvah is not what G-d commanded us to do. The Jerusalem Talmud includes a parable of a person who gave the king a gift of an object that he himself had stolen from the king (Perek Lulav Ha-Gazul).
Woe to the person whose defender becomes his prosecutor (see Mesillat Yesharim at the beginning of chapter 11 regarding those who fulfill mitzvot with the help of theft).
As stated, we have to avoid not just striking our fellow man, but also speaking or thinking evil of him. There's a well-known saying in Hebrew: “What begins with thought, continues with speech, and ends up with deeds.”
All the preceding applies regarding every Jew, let alone regarding soldiers. Don't forget that this soldier endangers his life for you, and you lift a hand against him?! Ninety nine percent of the time he is defending our people and our land. He is defending the great sanctification of G-d's name. Yet sometimes he is forced, against his will, to do things that are enormously hard for him, and his heart cries within him. And you dare lift a hand against him?!
You've forgotten the main point. You've forgotten that the backbone of the entire enterprise of rebuilding the Land, of the return to Zion, of establishing the State, of Israel's wars and settlement drives - is the love of Israel, the unity of Israel. That is what we need the most - to be friends.
