‘Breaking the Silence’: Israeli whistleblowing NGO under pressure for exposing IDF abuses
The other day I listened to this report on RT & I thought I’d make this my last post for the year. I’m a bit of a romanticist at heart but I can’t help but feel this is what we desperately need if our intention is to stop the outrageous crimes being committed by the IDF. At the end of the day it’s down to the politicians & the media but I’m sure the best way to bring pressure to bear is if we did more to support Israelis who step up to the plate. Happy New Year to all.
“A group of Israel Defense Forces (IDF) veterans, who call themselves ‘Breaking the Silence’, are trying to expose the reality of IDF actions in the occupied territories. However, it stands accused of posing a threat to Israel by the country’s top politicians.
Breaking the Silence says its mission is essential to stopping violence in the region by helping to end the military occupation of the Palestinian territories. Members of the organization are trying to draw public attention to issues that are not covered by Israeli media and are not made public.”
