Die Lebensgeschichte eines wahren Israeli: Über die Militarisierung der Jugend in Israel

„Ein wahrer Israeli drückt sich nicht vor der Einberufung“[1] – dieses Motto steht im Mittepunkt einer großangelegten Werbekampagne in Israel. Die Kampagne wird nicht vom israelischen Militär betrieben und zielt nicht darauf mit Soldat_innen den Schwund bei den israelischen Streitkräfte (IDF) zu stoppen. Israel hat – zumindest de jure – eine allgemeine Wehrpflicht sowohl für Männer als auch für Frauen. Das Motto ist dennoch Ausdruck und Verstärkung der israelischen Auffassung über die Rolle des Militärdiensts im Leben eines Israeli – eines „wahren“ Israeli.

Noam GurNoam GurWar Resisters' International is concerned about the recent imprisonment of Israeli conscientious objector Noam Gur.

Noam Gur, 18 year old from Kiryat Motzkin near Haifa, arrived in the morning of Monday, 16 April, to the Induction Base in Tel Hashomer, where she declared her refusal to serve in the Israeli Army as it is an occupying force. She was sentenced to 10 days of imprisonment for her refusal.

Noam Gur: declaration of conscientious objection

  • Israel

For years I have been told that the control over the Palestinian people is supposed to protect me, but information about the suffering caused due to the terrorizing of the Palestinian population was omitted from that story. The road to dismantling this apartheid and achieving true and just peace is long, and hard, but as I see it, actions taken by the Israeli army only push it further away.

I am very concerned about the recent imprisonment of conscientious objector Noam Gur, who has been sentenced to 10 days imprisonment on 16 April 2012. This is the first of potentially a series of prison sentences.

Israeli High Court of Justice legalizes the exploitation of natural resources in the OPT

2011 will go down in memory as the year in which the Israeli Knesset has intensified its anti-democratic legislation, while the Israeli High Court of Justice validated once again the structural economic exploitation in the occupied Palestinian territories. On Monday, December 26 the Israeli High Court of Justice rejected a petition filed by the organization Yesh Din, which challenged the legality of the use of natural resources extracted by 11 companies quarrying and mining in the occupied West Bank.

Campaign of the Month: Military Embargo on Israel Now !

On July 9, 2011 the BNC (BDS National Committee), the largest Palestinian civil society coalition, launched a call for a mandatory, comprehensive military embargo on Israel.

The BNC calls upon all people of conscience, movements and organisations worldwide to support the embargo and to pressure governments, multilateral bodies and the UN, as well as private and public companies and institutions, to:

Freedom Flotilla - solidarity from words to action

Jørgen Johansen

The illegal blockade of Gaza has been condemned by most major international actors. The horrible consequences of this brutal violation of humanitarian law are unacceptable from every point of view. One and a half million people interned on the small strip (45 square km) between Israel, the Mediterranean, and Egypt. The blockade has reduced the transport of goods to and from Gaza by 80%.

Statement: Impose an immediate, comprehensive military embargo on Israel!

A call for urgent international action

Occupied Palestine, 9 July 2011 – While the Arab Spring for freedom, democracy and social justice has exposed and challenged the collusion of world governments with autocratic and oppressive Arab regimes, many states and corporations continue their business-as-usual arms trade and military cooperation with Israel. Cooperation with Israel is maintained despite its systematic resort to massive violence against and killing of Palestinian and other Arab civilians, including school children and peaceful activists, and in spite of its increasingly brutal colonial policies against the Palestinian people and the persistent flouting of international law. Seven years after the International Court of Justice advisory opinion recommending international cooperation to ensure that Israel dismantles its illegal Wall in the occupied West Bank, and on the sixth anniversary of Palestinian civil society’s call for a broad campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law, the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) calls for immediate international action towards a mandatory comprehensive military embargo against Israel similar to that imposed against apartheid South Africa in the past.
