Tal Mitnick

Like Tal Mitnick, I refused to serve Israel as a soldier

It’s important to understand why

(29.12.2023) Last week, 18-year-old Tal Mitnick was jailed for 30 days for refusing Israel Defense Forces enlistment, becoming the first conscientious objector imprisoned since the Israel-Hamas war began. “I refuse to believe that more violence will bring security. I refuse to take part in a war of revenge,” Mitnick wrote in a statement.

Peace society calls for permanent residence status for Ukrainians in Germany

(29.12.2023) Schulze von Glaßer. The DFG-VK, which has looked after conscientious objectors in Germany for decades, is particularly concerned that the German government has currently only granted protection status to Ukrainians who have fled to Germany until March 2025. This is because there is no end to the war in sight.

There is no military solution – a statement of refusal

(26.12.2023) This land has a problem – there are two nations with an undeniable connection to this place. But even with all the violence in the world, we could not erase the Palestinian people or their connection to this land, just as the Jewish people or our connection to that same land cannot be erased. The problem here is supremacy, the belief that this land belongs to only one people. Violence cannot solve the situation, neither by Hamas, nor by Israel. There is no military solution to a political problem. Therefore, I refuse to enlist in an army that believes that the real problem can be ignored, under a government that only continues the bereavement and pain.
