Intelligence Vets Denounce Israel

Sep 15, 2014

Forty-three veterans of an elite Israeli military intelligence unit have publicly declared they will no longer “take part in the state’s actions against Palestinians” during their reserve duty. They say the kind of information they collected while on active duty “harms innocent people ... is used for political persecution, does not allow for people to lead normal lives, and fuels more violence, further distancing us from the end of the conflict.”

Among the things they did was to collect information about medical conditions and the sexual orientation of Palestinians who were being held in detention and easily subjected to threats, harassment, injury or torture to force them to spy for Israel.

And these were Israeli intelligence agents – revealing just a little bit about the filthy war Israel’s military carries on every day against Palestinians in what used to be their own lands!
