It’s not easy being a whistleblower; least of all an Israeli soldier who decides to go public about his or her time serving in the Palestinian Territories. "Breaking the Silence" is an Israeli organisation that offers soldiers the opportunity to voice their testimonies. Its co-founder, Yehuda Shaul, talks to Annette Young about how they aim to expose the harsh realities of the Occupation to fellow Israelis.

We'd give them a hell of a time

testimony catalog number: 80688
rank: Staff Sergeant
unit: Armored Corps
area: Nablus area
period: 2003

There was this checkpoint inside Nablus itself; this road that connected Beit Furiq with other villages east of Nablus. We'd give them a hell of a time there. It was a checkpoint where we would detain whoever we felt like it, chase "leakers". That was what we did at that checkpoint.

Israel is guilty of “particularly severe” human rights violations, both in the Palestinian territories and Israel proper, according to a scathing new report by one of the country’s premier rights organizations.

Abstract
This article investigates the history of contemporary Christian Zionism in the United States and the impact of this movement on US policy issues related to Israel-Palestine. Dispensationalist Christian Zionists, often described the 'Armageddon lobby', make up the largest voting bloc in the Republican Party and have become a mainstay in US politics. More recently, the Christian Zionist lobby has had a profoundly damaging impact on the Israeli-Palestinian 'peace process' as well as creating a conspiracy of silence regarding Israeli offensives in the occupied Palestinian territories. Though the 'Armageddon lobby' has been successful in its efforts as a pro-Israel lobby, its influence is in fact counterproductive to Israel because the lobby hinders the prospect of Israel living in peace because of their policy of deterring the progression of negotiations.

With the collapse of communism mankind's utopian fantasies have returned to a religious hue.  The Armageddonites (and their co-believer extreme fundamentalists in the Muslim and Jewish worlds) are the new dreamers of bringing paradise to earth, just, however, with the need to eliminate most of the human race first.  In America we have now this strange alliance, the Israeli Likud settler lobby gets money, guns and political cover.  In exchange millions of born again "rapture" evangelicals gain fulfillment, believing that they are helping God to end the world during their lifetimes and thereby will get a quick pass to heaven "without dying" (no judgment day). Oh, and with the death of all Jews (and the rest of the human race) who do not convert to their faith.

There are approximately 20 million people in the United States who devoutly believe that there is a very real possibility that they will not die. Their belief rests entirely on the existence of the State of Israel. This is why they regard current affairs in the Middle East as a life-and-no-death matter.

"The suspicion in Israel," the AP report continues, is (get this) "that the Iranians have held off on a decision in order to deny Israel -- and other countries -- the pretext for an attack." The cunning devils.
