US Politics & Gov't  (tags: corruption, war, government, cover-up )

Nils Ande
- 1 day ago - alternet.org
We are more than 50 Israelis who were once soldiers and now declare our refusal to be part of the reserves. We oppose the Israeli Army and the conscription law. Partly, that's because we revile the current military operation.
