We strongly urge you to extrapolate your Call to
reach the logical next step:
Calling upon Israeli academics to conscientiously
object to service in the occupation army. As you know, most Israeli academics do
serve in the reserve forces, thereby witnessing in silence or directly participating in
Israel's crimes against the civilian Palestinian population.
The collusion of
Israel's academic institutions in the violation of international law and basic human rights
of Palestinians is
multi-faceted and entrenched.
