Today, in a joint session of the Knesset Foreign Affairs/Defense and Education committees on the topic of refusal of military orders:
Retired Supreme Court Deputy Chief Justice Mishael "the Chopper" Heshin: "Refusal of a demolition order destroys the army... If the 'black flag of illegality' waves over an order, then it must not be fulfilled. But the State did not wave such a flag over participation in the outer rings of a [demolition-and-expulsion] operation…
[Lurker comments: Perhaps the IDF can clear up all the confusion by distributing photographs of the infamous "black flag of illegality" to all soldiers, so that they should know exactly what it looks like for future reference.]
Heshin: Personal refusal is one thing, but refusal of an entire sector is a contagious disease. It leads to the minority taking control over the larger group."
MK Yaakov "Ketzaleh" Katz: "You mean like in the Supreme Court."
