This post is an incomplete sketch of ideas and thoughts relevant to the BDS movement on US campuses. It isn’t a response to Qato and Rabie’s excellent “Against the Law" (since they did not address the campus BDS movement), but it is motivated by discussions that have stemmed from the article’s…

Thumbs up for Israeli youth who choose not to serve in the IDF!

Israeli Omer Goldman, who went to jail rather than serve in the Israeli Army:
 
“In Israel, after you finish high school, you have to join the army immediately … when it was my time to join the Israeli army, I refused, because I am against the fact that the Israeli army is occupying the Palestinian territories and the Palestinian people. I won’t take part in a system that commits war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The IDF bombs innocent people; it’s a terrorist organization, but no one calls it that. We are hurting innocent people; we are acting like a terrorist organization.

I knew I had to go with my heart, because I have to live with myself. I didn’t want to regret for the rest of my life being a part of a system that is so wrong, and so illegal, and doing awful things.”

The International Solidarity Movement published footage from Tel Rumedia in Al-Khalil (Hebron) showing a group of Israeli soldiers intimidating a group of children. One soldier, the one wearing a cap, pushes one young boy and grabs what appears to be the ear of a second boy before forcefully kicking him and knocking his head away. The ISM reports that this child is 12 years old.

When another child attempts to run from the assault, two soldiers, including the one with the hat, sprint after him and appear to corner him behind a wall.
