It would appear that Naom Gur is quite a brave, responsible, perceptive young lady; one who is capable of not only empathizing with the suffering of others, but who also believes that the “terrorizing of the Palestinian population,” pushes the any chance of real peace further away. Consequently, she has refused to enlist in the Israeli army, saying; “….. the Palestinian people have been increasingly choosing the path of nonviolent resistance, and I choose to join this path and to turn to a popular, nonviolent struggle in Palestine, rather than to serve in the Israeli army and continue the violence.
Now, Naom lives in the oxymoronic “Jewish Democracy”, therefore, it can hardly be expected that the “oxymorons” have a mechanism to deal with people like her. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that when she declared her refusal to serve in the Israeli army on her arrival at the IDF induction base, because “it is an occupying force”, that she was sentenced to 10 days of imprisonment.
Of course, ten days is hardly a big deal, but that isn’t all and, apparently, when the ten days are up she will be sent back to prison if she refuses again. This will then continue for a couple of months before she is finally released on …….. wait for it, on “a mental health clause”, which is the normal practice with conscientious objectors. That’s right folks, in the oxymoronic “Jewish Democracy”, where newspeak rules the day, being sane, means that you must be mad.
