Check out this Guardian article about Yonatan Ben-Artzi, nephew of Bibi Netanyahu, who’s spent 200 days in prison so far for refusing to be conscripted into the Israeli Army. He says he’s a pacifist and conscientious objector. The Army does not seem to understand those terms. It’s a fascinating piece all-round, but this sentence in particular leapt out at me:
The committee came to the remarkable conclusion that his persistent resistance to the army was evidence of the qualities of a soldier and therefore he could not be a pacifist.
