    If a foreign government were conducting a secretive and illegal policy to discriminate against Jews, nevermind killing them, and someone on the inside revealed it, you'd all call the whistleblower a hero even if they broke 100 of their nation's laws in doing so. So now, what if it turns out Anat Kamm has actual proof of illegal actions in the IDF? Did the IDF provide any formal, transparent mechanism by which such allegations could be brought to the public's awareness and then investigated? Is there any way an IDF soldier can raise allegations against a commander and have the public know about it, before some corrupt official manages to shut them up? If any of you care about the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, you need to demand public oversight over the contents of these stolen documents. If it turns out that Anat Kamm is telling the truth, then it is a duty of any righteous Jew and any lover of freedom and human dignity to do the same thing as she did, when placed in such a position. After all, what does "the most moral army in the world" have to hide from a bunch of petty, vengeful human rights lawyers? From the way much of your nation is treating Ms. Kamm, it sounds like indeed there's a heck of a lot you guys don't want the world to know.

Why Barak regrets speaking out on Iran
