Is there nothing intrinsically treasonous about subjecting your own serviceman to discipline for acting within an environment of hostility that was created by top level people in the first place? The people doing the punishing, and the top level power brokers, are more to blame, under any moral, ethical or legal context, than the soldiers who carried out their orders or within the context of rules of engagement that were set out by officers. There is much testimony from former IDF soldiers and officers relating how orders came form the top down to do horrible and atrocious things to Palestinians. Most of these soldiers went AWOL due to the fact that they couldn't humanely carry out the acts they were being asked to carry out in the name of Israel and Zionism.
