Refusenik: Israel's Soldiers of Conscience

by Peretz Kidron (ed)
£31.99   paperback  Zed Books (2004)

Refusenik: Israel Hundreds of Israeli soldiers, called up to take part in controversial campaigns like the 1982 invasion of Lebanon or policing duties in the Palestinian territories today, have refused orders. Many of these 'refuseniks' have faced prison sentences rather than take part in what they regard as an unjust occupation in defence of illegal Jewish settlements. In this inspirational book, Peretz Kidron, himself a refusenik, gives us the stories, experiences, viewpoints, even poetry, of these courageous conscripts who believe in their country but not in its actions beyond its borders. We read about the cautious, even embarrassed, response of the authorities. And we see the wider implications of the philosophy of selective refusal - which is not the same thing as pacifism - for conscientious citizens in every country where conscription still exists. Here is a real model for the peace movement in Israel and worldwide.
