High school senoirs won't enlist in army

Israel National News reports on high school senoirs who have formed a petition stating that they won't serve in the Israeli army for its role in expelling Jews from their homes in Gaza:
Hundreds of high school seniors have already signed - more are apparently on the way - that as a result of the IDF's role in the disengagement and expulsion, they will not enlist in the IDF.

Yoni Kahane, 18, of Netanya, one of the organizers, spoke with Arutz-7 about the idea. "We expect thousands more to join up," he said.

The declaration is headlined, "We're not enlisting in the IDF, the army of expulsion and destruction!"

It continues, "I will object to serving in an army that expelled Jews from their homes, an army that fights its nation, that burned [sic] synagogues and yeshivot, that destroyed the lives of 15,000 Jews in the Land of Israel, whose actions strengthened the terrorists..."
I certainly can't blame any of Israel's students for not wanting to serve in the army after what was done. What's interesting about this though, is that it pretty much points out that media scare tactics being led by such papers as the Jerusalem Post in past months are greatly exaggerated. For the moment anyway, serving in the army is not as important as national honor to some people.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
