About the Author

Peretz Kidron is a journalist, broadcaster and writer. Born in Vienna in 1933, he fled Nazi persecution to settle in Britain with his family. He later emigrated to Israel, lived on a kibbutz and became active in the peace movement. A refusenik himself, he handles international contacts for the refusenik organisation Yesh Gvul.


'Our greatest admiration must go to those brave Israeli soldiers who refuse to serve beyond the 1967 borders... These soldiers, who are Jews, take seriously the principle put forward at the Nuremberg trials in 1945-46: namely, that a soldier is not obliged to obey unjust orders - indeed, one has an obligation to disobey them.' - Susan Sontag, novelist, essayist and playwright. 'Resistance to crimes of state, and refusal to participate in them, has been and remains one of the most significant achievements of people of decency and courage throughout history. The Israelis who have undertaken this honorable course merit the greatest admiration and respect. Their testimonies are a memorable contribution to this noble cause.' - Noam Chomsky
