Saying No

So, my appeal was rejected by the IDF, and so I shall be going to reserve duty on March 9th. I shall show up at the training base (within Israeli borders) and announce that I refuse to serve in the occupied territories (where I am summoned to do guard duty). I shall no doubt be tried for this, and a likely outcome would be imprisonment for 14-28 days.

I'm meeting a guy from Seruv on Thursday after my exam, to hear a bit about their experiences and some of the IDF's underhanded tactics of manipulation against refuseniks.

I'll make sure the results of my trial are posted here, when the time comes.

Too bad about the semester.
