The Army Took

This morning Ofer was called for reserved duty. He is stationed in the northern part of Israel, so it's safer than being in Lebanon, but hazardous enough to have us worried.

If he calls to share his sane perspectives, I'll do my best to transcribe them.

Yonatan,
Thank you for sharing that news with us. Ofer and his family will be in my prayers.

Hope Ofer and others stay safe from harm. We should also spare some kind words for the growing number of Israeli refusers, who are not willing to serve in this war of choice, conducted by alleged war criminals (sorry, folks, I will not use euphemisms for these people and their policies).

Information is available here:

including an interview with Zohar, a good friend of mine who will probably go to prison tomorrow (slight correction: Zohar is not the "second...to become", the number is much higher, I get to talk to these people everyday...)

Ofer, I am Lebanese. I am patriotic. And I hate Israel right now more than anything.

Yet, I hope you remain safe.

And I also hope that you don't come back with blood on your hands.

Ofer N (anonymous),

Our friend Ofer is risking his life so that you can remain and write your blog entries from the safety of your home. After all, you "refused" (or are advertising for it) and others are risking their lives in your place.

Israel was attacked, and certainly does not commit war crimes as a policy (which is costing us many lives). You may senseless remarks about war crimes in other threads, but this thread is not the place.

Wishing Ofer a safe return.
