"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 715, October 24, 2014: Unit 8200 refuseniks shed light on ethics of Israel's intel gathering (Part 1)
For the first time, a distinction has been drawn between intel gathering against Israel's enemies, and spying on ordinary Palestinian citizens. By not exiling like Snowden, the signatories were willing to pay the price of their actions. Forty-three former members of Israel Defense Forces intelligence Unit 8200, including some officers, wrote an open letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and top military officials, saying they would refuse to do reserve service because of Israel's `political persecution' of the Palestinians. "We, veterans of Unit 8200, reserve soldiers both past and present, declare that we refuse to take part in actions against Palestinians and refuse to continue serving as tools in deepening the military control over the Occupied Territories." the soldiers said in the letter, which was also addressed to IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz and Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi, the head of the Military Intelligence Directorate.

« Hamas lauded its kidnappers ». We now know from Mickey Rosenfeld, Israeli Police Spokesman’s statements to BBC reporter John Donnison, that Hamas is not responsible for the attack on the 3 settler youth. Why would Hamas want to inflame the situation right after forming a unity government? Mr. Klein, read the Terms of Agreement.
« Israel’s actions have been more prudent across the board ». More prudent than what? Than a genocide? Have you seen the photos of Gaza? Have you read the statistics of the dead, wounded and displaced? The “anti-Israel riots” Why are protests and demonstrations called riots when they are against unjust Israeli state policies?

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 711, September 26, 2014: Netanyahu orders the biggest land-grab in a generation
On August 31st Israel’s government made its largest appropriation of occupied West Bank land in a generation. It took some 1,000 acres of virgin hills for a proposed new city, Givaot, doubling the population of the Gush Etzion block of settlements sprawling on the hills around Bethlehem. But it was not enough for the area’s Israeli mayor, Davidi Perl. Frustrated by what he perceives as the government’s grovelling to westerners, on everything from the recently halted war in Gaza to the conduct of peace talks with Palestinians, he says he will change party—defecting from Likud, led by the prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, to Jewish Home, a party of religious radicals headed by Naftali Bennett.
