reserve power

"Last week, 52 Israeli army reservists placed an open letter in the weekend papers stating their refusal to serve in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The reservists believe the Israel Defense Force's "mission of occupation and repression" doesn't serve the defense of the state of Israel, and they consider the IDF's actions there to be designed to "expel, starve, and humiliate an entire people." By Monday, the Jerusalem Post reported that the number of refuseniks had grown to 150."
