Asunto:[GAP] Israel: Soldiers who say NO!
Fecha:Domingo, 7 de Abril, 2002  15:51:21
Autor:Andres Angel <andangel>

>From: Institut für Globale Friedensarbeit <IGF@...>
>To: <Undisclosed-Recipient:;>
>Subject: Israel: Soldiers who say NO!
>Date: Sat, 6 Apr 2002 17:57:31 +0200
>To the courageous soldiers who say "NO!"                     2nd of April 
>"We will not go on fighting beyond the 'green line' for the purposes of 
>domination, expulsion, starvation and humiliation of an entire people".
>From the declaration of combat officers and soldiers of the IDF published 
>in the Ha'aretz on the 27th of January 2002
>My name is Benjamin von Mendelssohn and I work at the "Institute for Global 
>Peace Work" in Tamera, Portugal. We in Tamera read the declaration quoted 
>above and hope began to rise.
>I am not a young Israeli soldier who is asked to fulfil the inhuman orders 
>of the occupation. I do not know what I would do if I were in this 
>situation. I live in the relative safety of a peace project in Portugal.
>From here I want to express my deep respect, my gratitude and my solidarity 
>to the growing number of young men who refuse to serve in the occupied 
>It is a service of peace to the world to take on the consequences that this 
>decision brings along in a militaristic society.
>I know the story of a friend of mine who served in the IDF. He realized the 
>insanity of it when his best friend was blown to pieces right next to him. 
>He quit the army and quit the country.
>But he also told me about the fascination to hold a gun, the surge of power 
>that one feels when you "can take somebody down from a 100 meters distance 
>as a sniper".
>This is the disease of a male society. We get trained what it means to be a 
>man right from the beginning. We hardly get trained what it means to be a 
>But we young men should grow up instead of just growing old. We need to 
>quit using violence to compensate the fear that we have inside. Fear that 
>we project to the outside and then run fighting against it. Fear that 
>threatens to strangle the whole globe.
>I hope more and more young men start to become fighters against that fear, 
>freedom fighters. What about using all our male strength in body and mind 
>for the protection of our planet?
>If this movement of courageous soldiers who say "NO!" to war - inside or 
>outside - as the first Israeli soldiers do right now, would grow bigger, 
>big enough that the discriminating punishments can not be kept up, then I 
>could believe in a beginning peace process.
>They need our support now. The support of their mothers, who do not want to 
>loose their sons, of their fathers, who might serve in the army themselves 
>but nevertheless recognize the new, of their friends who know that it is 
>easier to be courageous together.
>They need the support of international peace workers and peace initiatives 
>who can provide rest, healing and a new orientation - simply through the 
>advantage of not being involved directly.
>And then we all need a perspective, a peace plan in which we can believe.
>We need models for this peace. Places where peace can be researched, seen 
>and felt. Places where peace and trust can grow between humans, between 
>humans and animals, plants and all of creation.
>May these courageous soldiers be the beginning of a stronger global peace 
>May they grow into part of a movement for a free earth.
>Shalom and Salaam!
>Benjamin von Mendelssohn
