Umstrittene Aktion:
Reaktion von Gush Schalom

Aus dem Newsletter von Gush Schalom:

"This time we have to ask you to support us - Gush Shalom - by sending protest letters.

A storm of mostly negative public attention continues to surround the letters sent by Gush Shalom to individual officers in the Israeli army - with copies to the Chief-of Staff and Defence Ministry.

What is all the fuss about? The content of the letters was a warning that specific actions which the addressee had been boasting about in the media may constitute violations of international law.

Why the army and the government chose this particular moment for giving enormous publicity to these letters we can only guess. Actually, the letters have been sent months ago. Since then military personnel who give interviews to the media no longer give their names - according to new instructions which were explicitly motivated as a precauttion against officers being charged at the new international war crimes court...

Maybe we achieved that at least there is a beginning awareness now that one has to be careful; that even when one gets an order, one has to think for oneself whether this order could be considered illegal.

We got an enormous lot of mails and telephone calls - a nice number of supportive ones, some decent but critical, and also a huge number of the most disgusting sort.

If you want to support us, please make clear as follows or in your own words that:

"Gush Shalom, by sending warning letters to officers who have been actually boasting about acts which are violating the Geneva Conventions, has made use of its democratic rights, and fulfilled in a way a civilian duty: guarding moral and legal principles.

A government which starts legal procedures against a peace group for alerting them, does create the suspicion that it has something to hide - an impression which already rose by its keeping the press away."
