Being a citizen in a democracy carries with it a commitment to democratic values and a responsibility for your actions. It is morally impossible to be both a devoted democratic citizen and a regular offender against democratic values.

ISHAI MENUCHIN, an IDF soldier who refuses to serve in eth occupied territories.

I wonder why the IDF refusal to serve phenom hasnt been more visible in the media? Probably because it requires some subtlety to grok - after all, the media has barely mentioned that there actually is an occupation, which is a prepreq for understanding why someone would refuse to serve as a matter of principle.
