Soldier in Iraq puts himself at great personal risk by refusing combat mission.
Tell who you can. Let your neighbors, friends, and enemies know. Because this guy has the biggest balls of anyone. Ever.
Yesterday, Eli Israel refused to be a combatant in Iraq any longer.
Here's what he wrote to one of his friends back home:
He stood up for something he deeply believes (believed?) in. I mean, granted; He's in the army and his life is not his own until he gets out.
But the bravery and awe-inspiring courage he exhibited with this one simple action, with one simple word, "No." No I will not fight this terrible, unjust war for you any longer. Against a mighty oppressor is something truly amazing, and most definitely rare.
