Description - Refusenik! by Peretz Kidron

In Israel, hundreds of soldiers called up to take part in controversial campaigns or assignments have refused orders. In the current Palestinian intifada, over a thousand such refusals have been registered, many of the "refuseniks" serving prison sentences rather than defend illegal Jewish settlements. This text presents the stories, experiences, viewpoints and poetry, of these officers and ordinary footsoldiers, men and women, from every ethnic background and class. Here is the story of Yesh Gvul ("there is a limit"...) which has long served refuseniks as a voice and campaigning vehicle, and the newer refusal groups. And we see the wider implications of the philosophy of selective refusal for conscientious citizens n every country where conscription still exists, and the model it presents for the peace movement worldwide.
