Good news: in fear of criticism from the Jewish and international community, the prime minister has postponed the home demolitions planned for the Palestinian village of Susiya this week. That's how a successful struggle works. In recent years, we exposed thousands to the harsh realities in which we partook as soldiers in the South Hebron Hills, and the occupied territories at large - as well as the struggle against home demolitions carried out by residents of Susiya and other villages, alongside other good people who decided to contribute in aiding the cause. People like to ask us why we speak out abroad. First of all, because it's our duty as soldiers who served in the occupied territories, and as Israelis who demand a future without occupation. But among the other reasons are villages like Susiya, which are faced by endless efforts on behalf of the settlement movement and institutional forces that the right-wing government exploits to dispossess Palestinians of their land. The struggle against them has no chance if it's not conducted on several fronts simultaneously. These are small and important victories amidst a long and stubborn struggle. This would not have happened if our friends abroad - organizations like J Street, IfNotNow, New Israel Fund, Meretz USA, Americans for Peace Now and others, along with members of the American Congress - had not taken a clear, firm moral stand. It must serve as a reminder that there's always something to be done and we have a duty to do so. And no less important, because at the end of the day, behind all the talk about left-wing, right-wing, and occupation, there are also people. People who may lose their homes and lands, who live year after year without knowing whether they'll lose their home tomorrow - not a house that they built on private land that they stole from other people, or on occupied land - a house they built on their own land. They have no other country. And neither do we. That's why we're fighting for a non-occupying Israel. We can write about Susiya endlessly, but you can't really understand what's going on in the South Hebron Hills without seeing it for your own eyes and hearing from the combatants who were there.

A former soldier in a sniper unit speaks about firing unarmed civilians

10 04 18

Watch Nadav Weiman, a former combat soldier in the Nahal reconnaissance platoon’s sniper team, speak about firing at unarmed Palestinian civilians, and explain why the political echelon must take responsibility for what they sent us to do in the territories: "The IDF's open fire regulations when I was a sniper were means, intention, and ability. Then in [Operation] 'Protective Edge' after we threw fliers - everyone could be shot at. And today we see that open fire regulations are [applied to] unarmed demonstrators."

The State Attorney's Office Virtual Reality

The public's trust in the State Attorney's Office must be in tune with its performances. The investigation of Dean Issacharoff and branding him as a liar, undermines this trust.
