David Be'eri is a notrious right-wing fundamentalist settler and the prime mover in Elad. And "Elad is to a great extent the story of one man. David Beeri, who is known to everyone as Davideleh, who first worked in Ateret Cohanim and then, in the early 1980s, cast his eye on Silwan." He is the recipient of the 2008 The Guardian of Zion Award, an award presented to zionist activists.
He is a former deputy commander of the IDF's Duvdevan undercover unit
Yigal Bronner writes:Events involving David Be’eri:Those courageous enough to file a complaint at the police station itself were also instantly arrested. In short, Elad is the law in Silwan, where people joke that "David" in "City of David" stands for Elad leader David Be'ery, Silwan's "sheriff", who to this day resides in one of the homes whose acquisition the court decried.
