Israeli soldiers are refusing to fight in the occupied territories.
Further anecdotal evidence to support my thesis that Israel’s fueling of the flames of war against the Palestinians will ultimately defeat Sharon politically and will fracture Israeli society. Israelis themselves will be further divided between peace and compromise; and war and hatred. (Ian’s subjective interpretation of the two camps).
Sharon will need to resolve this matter before 2006 if he hopes to get re-elected. He may need to diminish the effects of the 18-month-old Al Aqsa intifada now, if he expects to avoid the shame of a “no confidence” vote ousting him from power. Because he is a ruthless, hateful warmonger he will seek to do so militarily and an all-out war will erupt.
If the movement expressed on the web site below takes hold, who will fight?
