Former IDF Members Speak Against IDF

I like to post links to articles and videos that I think show that not all Israeli’s and Jews are drinking the current Zionist koolaid.

Here is an article by one such man, Simcha Leventhal  who served on the IDF from 2000-2003. 

I am so grateful to the people who speak out against the moral degradation of Israel Nationalism and Policy.

If you don’t read the link, please read this on his call to challenge the Israeli Government’s War Policy:

Challenging them, we must quote not only the numbers of dead civilians, many of them women and children, but we must also say openly that the methods used by our military were ones with known results. Our government knew in advance that the artillery shells would result in hundreds of civilians dead and wounded and thousands of homes destroyed. When they decided to move forward anyway, they did so in complete disregard of international law, dragging our military to a new moral low.

 

Here is a video with the testimony of another former IDF member speaking his truth on the IDF and the immoral occupation of Palestine:

His message is that we need a true moral debate on the implications of the occupation on both Israeli and Palestinian societies, and to do this, more IDF members and Israelis must speak their truths on the immoral actions of their government.

 

Here is a much longer video on the testimonies of two veterans of the IDF:

    It is amazing to me, that there is so much confusion over who the terrorists are. Hamas is a terrorist organization that condones and facilitates suicide bombings and will kill every Jew on the planet if they have the chance.
    Israel is an energetic democracy with a vibrant press. Israel is a free country that abides by the rule of law. By contrast, if a writer were to go to Gaza or Iran, for instance, and start writing bad words, he might wind up on the news, dead.
    Israel allows Christians and Arab Muslims to worship freely, while Hamas wants to see us all at the bottom of the sea. Hamas, supported by Iran, is clear about their goals: they want to wipe out Israel completely, utterly, with finality. But it’s not just Israel that Hamas wants to kill; they want to kill all Jews everywhere.

    James-

    Hamas does not speak for all palestinians, and Israeli policy does not speak for all Israelis…

    Both societies have been violent towards each other, both sides have been responsible for atrocities. But one side has more political, economic, and military power. Israel may have a democracy, but a democracy that reigns over an occupation, and apartheid, and repeatedly shows disdain for International law, Palestinian civilian lives and homes, and builds a Wall to keep people out, is not the kind of democracy that I think is ‘energetic’ or ‘vibrant.’
