 This is a Israeli who refuses to join a military that kills innoccent people for who they are and no other reason..she is one of many.....

 

Fisrt prison term for CO Neta Mishli. Information on Itay Melamed’s refusal. Full information and recommended action follow.

Today’s update contains information on two objectors. First Neta Mishli, 18, from Tel-Aviv, a signatory of the 2008 high school seniors refusal letter, who began serving her first prison term today (23 Apr.) Neta arrived yesterday (22 Apr.) at the military Induction Base and refused to enlist. For this she was first sentenced to seven days of confinement to base (she was told there was no room in the military prison for women). However, the following day she was again tried and sentenced, this time to 20 days in military prison. She was told that the Military Attorney’s Office has authorised trying her again for the very same act.

Neta has prepared the following declaration upon entering prison:

I am not willing to be part of an organization committing war crimes, taking the lives of thousands of innocent civilians, an organization that, in the name of humanism and democracy, forces me and my peers to sacrifise a period of our lives, and our lives themselves, for false calm, for no calm shall come to pass until Israel decides to give up the policy of war and turn towards peace. Therefore, as a small step towards stopping the cycle of bloodshed, I hereby refuse to enlist in the military.
