ISRAELI YOUTHS REJECT ARMY CALL-UP

.
More than 80 Israeli students have announced their refusal to serve in the Israeli military because of what they call their nation's track-record of oppression in the occupied territories.
.
The conscientious objectors issued a letter declaring their determination not to join up during a news conference in Tel Aviv in protest against the government's policies towards Gaza and the West Bank.
.
"We cannot ignore the truth - the occupation is a violent, racist, inhumane, illegal, undemocratic, immoral and an extreme condition that presents a mortal danger to both peoples," the letter read.
.
"We, who were educated on the values of liberty, justice, honesty and peace, cannot accept it."
.
It was signed by 84 high school students.
