I will not go. An Israeli Refusenik Speaks: “Why I Refuse to Serve in the Occupied Territories.” A Talk with Israeli Refusenik, Ron Gerlitz. Thursday, November 14. 7:30 pm. Women’s Building. 3543 18th Street, Between Valencia and Guerrero. San Francisco, CA. 16th and Mission BART. $5 Suggested Donation. Ron Gerlitz served in the Israeli Defense Forces for six years before making the decision to not serve in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza. He became a leader of Yesh Gvul (There is a Limit!), the Israeli organization that represents conscientious objectors, www.yesh-gvul.org. “I am writing these things wearing my army uniform. Yes, I am in reserve duty. But I have learned that my ethics must dictate the range of my obedience. ... I told my officers that I do not intend to participate in any naval operation against the Palestinian population in Gaza Strip. The Occupation completely opposes every value of mine, and complying with it conflicts with my understanding of democracy. “If I am sent, I will not go.” --Ron Gerlitz Sponsored by Jewish Voice for Peace.
