In Israel, military service is close to universal. Motivated by conscience--and at substantial personal risk--some Israeli soldiers refuse to serve with the occupying forces in Palestine. These soldiers are known as Refusers. We explore this important movement. And we'll hear one Refuser's story in depth, that of air force Major Yonatan Shapira, interviewed by Mike McCormick.
This installment was originally broadcast (as NWN #66) in June 2009. It is now available for the first time in a broadcast-quality (192 kbps) MP3 recording.

Thanks to Mike McCormick, producer of the radio show "Mind Over Matters."

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "false promises") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Music added: Chumbawamba, "Walking Into Battle With the Lord."
