COURAGEOUS FEAR 

A vigil demanding the immediate release from prison of the soldier, Yigal Ben Moshe, and calling   
for Israel's immediate retreat from Lebanon, will take place Tuesday, February 29th, at 17.00, at   
the “Kirya,” Tel-Aviv, opposite the Ministry of Defense.  

This morning the media reported that the soldier, Yigal Ben Moshe, had refused to enter Lebanon,   
due to fear. The IDF has sentenced him to 28 days in prison, for what it is calling a grave   
offense.  

Israel's current leaders have admitted the need to leave Lebanon. And yet, like all of Israel's   
leaders for the past 18 years, they lack the courage and wisdom to admit to the full scope of   
Israel's folly. They lack the courage and wisdom to order an immediate retreat, thus revealing the  
 total pointlessness of Israel's occupation of southern Lebanon.  

It is Yigal Ben Moshe, who is showing courage and wisdom.  

The ones committing grave offenses are generations of Israeli leaders, who cause young men to kill, 
  destroy and injure, to die and sustain injuries to body and soul – in vain.  

In such a war – he who refuses is the hero.  
Yigal Ben Moshe, like Ofer Sharon, who fearlessly admit to their fear –  
Are the true heros of the war in Lebanon!  

The New Profile Movement, organizing the vigil, works for the de-militarization of society in   
Israel.
