who serves in the israeli army? is it not the sons and daughters,husbands, lovers, fathers, uncles and grandfathers of israelis? how could israelis not know what is happening in the occupation. the army is not something 'out there' not known to anyone. do israelis not ask the men and women of their families what they do when they serve in the occupied palestinian territories. or have we all suddenly discovered a huge hole at the centre of israeli society - no one talks to one another. israel is a sophisticated, high tech society, one we in ireland are always told is in competition with us for investment in the new 'knowledge'economy. get real israel, you are all complicit in the horrendous human rights abuses happening under your noses- in this day and age you cannot use the 'we did not know' routine. you know, you do not care and unfortunately you do so because the international community is too afraid to take you on! but beware of where your behaviour is leading you.
