TEL AVIV, April 15, 2012 (WAFA) – Two Israeli citizens will declare on Monday their refusal to serve in the Israeli army as it is an occupying power will be imprisoned, Sunday said Israeli media sources.
They said that Noam Gur and Alon Gurman will arrive on Monday to the Israeli enlistment office in Tel Hashomer military base, where they will declare their refusal to serve in the Israeli Army and will be imprisoned time and time again for this refusal.
Alon said that, 'My refusal to serve in the Israeli military, in addition to being a refusal to take part in occupation and apartheid, is an act of solidarity with our Palestinian friends living under Israeli regime, and struggle for liberty, justice and equality.'
While Noam said, “I refuse to join an army that has, since it was established, been engaged in dominating another nation, in plundering and terrorizing a civilian population that is under its control.'
Friends and supporters will join Alon and Noam to the base, and remind the young Israelis about to join the army, that the occupation still continues, that there are those who oppose it, and that we must all act like Noam and Alon and refuse to take part in the ongoing oppression of the Palestinian people.
