Breaking the Silence: Israeli Army Veterans Tour U.S. & Canada to Speak Out Against Occupation
Democracy Now! speaks with two former Israeli soldiers who are members of Breaking the Silence, an anti-occupation group of Israeli army veterans. The group's education director, Tal Sagi, describes growing up in a settlement and joining the military without understanding what occupation was. "We've been told that this is security and we have to control millions of lives and we don't have other options," says Sagi, who says Israeli society is not open to ending the occupation. "We're trying to say that there are other options." We also speak with Breaking the Silence deputy director Nadav Weiman about why the group is touring U.S. colleges and calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. "We stood in checkpoints. We raided homes. We attacked Gaza from the air. We fought from the ground," says Weiman. "So, when you bring reality, you bring real conversation about the occupation, and you bring real conversation about Gaza."
