Aviram and Scott Chatting

My superstar colleague, Hadar Aviram, was just interviewed by Law & Policy's editor Colin Scott about her recent article, "How Law Thinks of Disobedience: Perceiving and Addressing Desertion and Conscientious Objection in Israeli Military Courts."  You can listen in here.

I'm looking forward to having Hadar blog with us soon.

It seems I was impatient with the download of the podcast, so it worked after all. Thanks. I look forward to reading her article.

I recently read the following from the preface to Jacqueline Rose's The Question of Zionism (2005):

"In December 2003, five teenage refuseniks, part of a growing group of young soldiers refusing to serve in the occupied territories, were jailed for a year by a Jaffa military court--the first to be court-martialed (all previous refuseniks had been given administrative sentences or allowed to go free). Summing up, the prosecutor called them 'ideological criminals,' 'the worst kind:' 'the fact that they are idealistic people and in many ways positive characters should be counted against them.' These young men had spoken out in public; airing their disillusionment, rather than disobeying orders, appears to have been the worst offense. At moments like these, it seems that--as much as danger to its citizens--the threat to the nation, the one thing that cannot be countenanced, was collapse of conviction, or loss of belief."

Relatedly, there's an very interesting interview with Rela Mazali, a founder of the New Profile, "a feminist organization which addresses the gender implications of the militarization of Israeli society," in Joel Beinin and Rebecca L. Stein, eds., The Struggle for Sovereignty: Palestine and Israel, 1993-2005 (2006): 175-181.

I don't seem to be able to access this: is it available online? And the article as well (nothing happens when I click on the stuff at the site): if anyone with access to it could please send me a copy I'd be most grateful.
