They are young Israelis soldiers only, not good or bad Jews. Should not you be more diplomatic and respectful in talking about others? We are being watched!,3523,1179836-6098-0,00.html

: Young Israelis refuse military service

: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------JERUSALEM
: About 213 young Israelis called up for national service
: said in a
: petition released yesterday they would refuse to serve in
: an "army of
: occupation".
: The petition was addressed to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel
: Sharon, Israeli
: Defence Minister Binyamin ben Eliezer and Education
: Minister Limor Livnat,
: said a spokesman for the petitioners, Hagai Matar.

: The petitioners accuse Israel of "committing war crimes and
: violating human
: rights" in the Palestinian territories, and back any form
: of refusal to do
: military service. "Among us there are some who refuse to
: wear the uniform,
: others refuse to serve beyond the Green Line (separating
: Israel from the
: West Bank and Gaza Strip) and others will find different
: ways of refusing to
: serve the occupation," said the petitioners. "The
: occupation is not only
: immoral, it also damages our security as it is driving the
: Palestinians to
: despair and provoking acts of terrorism."

: A year ago, a similar but weaker statement of conscientious
: objection
: circulated among new call-ups for military service
: attracted just 62
: signatures.

: In addition, 483 reserve officers and soldiers have signed
: a "refusenik
: petition", saying they will not serve in the occupied
: territories. Eight of
: the signatories appealed to the supreme court on September
: 4, asking it to
: endorse their stance by ruling the occupation illegal.

: The attorney-general countered by asking the court to deem
: the plaintiffs'
: refusal to serve illegal. The army, relying on reservists
: to pursue its
: reoccupation of the territories, has toughened its stand
: against
: conscientious objectors in recent months, after initially
: turning a blind
: eye to the movement. Sapa-AFP
