Support the release of Israeli Shministim’s

Shministim – are 16, 17, 18 and 19 year old students studying in the 12th grade – these are a new breed of conscientious objectors in Israel and right now they are taking a stand. They believe in a better, more peaceful future for themselves and for Israelis and Palestinians, and they are refusing to join the Israeli army. They’re in jail, holding strong against immense pressure from family, friends and the Israeli government.



The Shministim are reaching out to people to let the Israeli government know people are watching, and that we support their courage. They’re hoping to receive hundreds of thousands of postcards to be delivered to the Israeli Minister of Defense. Especially now-while bombs rain down on Gaza and we are reminded that when the soldiers say no, there will be no more deaths.

December18th.org – FREE THE SHMINISTIM – ISRAEL’S YOUNG CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTORS. The Shministim are Israeli high school students who have been imprisoned for refusing to serve in an army that occupies the Palestinian Territories. December 18 marks the launch date of a global campaign to release them from jail. Join over 20,000 people including American conscientious objectors,Ronnie Gilbert, Adrienne Rich, Robert Meeropol, Adam Hochschild, Rabbi Lynn Gottleib, Howard Zinn, Rela Mazali, Debra Chasnoff, Ed Asner and Aurora Levins-Morales and show your support by contacting the Israeli Minister of Defense using the form below. 40,000 LETTERS AND COUNTING!

I, as a Pakistani Muslim, fully condemn this recent offensive by the Israeli army on Gaza, but passionately believe that the world must quickly search for a peaceful solution in this half century war, it is heartening to note that young Israelis are standing up against their government to condemn this brutal offensive. The Shministim’s have my full support in their struggle to attain peace in their region – Do go to December18th.org website to sign their petition

    Life for such youth and their families is not easy.This voice for humanity and tolerance is the most difficult.I want to congratulate these youths for standing up not only for themselves but for other Israel citizens ,who want Peace and rest of the Jews living in world peacefully.
    These voices of PEACE must be freed without any prosecution.
    They are part of Israel but they are human and must have a choice like rest of the citizens of the world to decide for themselves what they want to be.
    I am glad they choose to be a Peaceful human being.
    FREE THEM .

    @ they simply refused to serve in Israeli army !
    just like before they refused to attack by air on
    Palestinians homes, schools or playgrounds they were
    known as ” refusniks ” we should all help them
    encourage them and defend them,

    no comments. just one question
    if they were in jail how they were interviewed. for me this seems to be a propaganda to achieve some hidden goals .
    we have sign millions of petitions for restricting anti Islam agenda like images on wiki but no result. i am not gona waste my time .

    @ bunch of young men women not like all zionist
    with killer instinct nade out of USAID, and
    certainly not like MQM’s elite hijrahs jiyalas
    terrorists, killers, thugs .

    @ fizdosani,

    your one question can be pertinenet, but its just
    about 30 % to 33 % Israelis who wants to live side by
    side with their Palestinian neighbours ! Refusniks
    between 22 to 28 years ) were also persecuted like
    these shministims jailed at the age of 18 19 20 for
    open and daring conscience, you see, may be Israeli
    jail authorities played a game with ” peace now ”
    militants and let them do these interviews, but remember
    one clever tactic from nazi Israel can be fatal for
    the whole Gastapo structure, my years of experience
    with very few jewish people vis a vis our Palestinian
    Association is that 28% of Israeli citizens are
    harrassed, tortured, insulted, boycotted, persecuted,
    bugged, spied, father against son, denouncing neighbours,
    collaboration with Mossad, Shin beith, sahal etc,
    your telephones are bugged, you are enlisted, traced out
    followed and first victim of first suspision, as worst as
    Nazi gastapos, Israel is not only terrorist but also a
    totalitarian regime. EVERY one is followed and listed,
    Imagine, MQM’s Mafia doing the same with its elite,
    every Party leader is followed, and controled, one word !
    against Altaf or MQM, you are executed. Just ask its
    members who left MQM, the horrors !

    but in a country who was established on the principle of killing innocent and downtrodden ,this seems really odd.

    why don’t you support to release all Islamic learn scholars from GTMO who know the Islamic Mohammaden system instead of Mammon system.

    everyone is not our enemy.there is nothing wrong to be afraid of torture,murder ,abuse and brutality.
    I respect the conscience and will of these people who realise and say no to kill people.Whoever these people are Israel,Palestine,Pakistan,British,USA ,Japan or China.
    When we say no to murder it means we say yes to HUMANITY and to life.

  • guYasir |

    if we say no to democracy and no to oxford education and no globalisation and no to banking money and honey then Vendetta can stop. Evil is Mammon and Enemy of Mohammad
    So murder will be on TOP
    There’s Hadith which says Bloodshe, Bloodshed and Bloodshed all you wanna murder or mammon? i want murder of mammon then all prb can be resolve and redefine in PEACE.TV
    folks, do ya like peace.tv or pi$$.tv?
    I’m staying in Parliament lodges and soon i gonna meet Sherbano-smoker and Shahbaz.Sharif only sharif in our Politics and maybe Rehman Dakait oh i mean R.Malik. PL environment is really rut and I’m unable to see national cohesion between our political parties even our public who choose them.. Democarcy = Delusion which uphold our slavery from our own hands. do we creat our kismet from our own hands?
    Are we Yahweh? no I ain’t I’m Yasir instead of Yahweh
    you aren’t Gods Amerikans and Israelis you are Lucrative Luciferins who feel world is tedious place and should be soulless but soulful soch can creat real “Change.”
    Our youth are soulless instead of soulful be soulful instead of soulless
    Soon Zardari will meet his wife BiBi
    farrah are you bi or straight?

    Mohammedanism instead of Mammonism can safe mankind

    These are end times don’t scare evey1 have to die but die like a LION instead of LIAR.
    Allah may give solace to Ummah and death to Islam Enemies

    Every1 thinks that he’s God like if you see in cricket matches where spectators bring posters like Sachin is God
    Mattew Hayden retired recently on his retirment there’s a poster says Hayden is God. our speedstar Shoaib Akthar thinks he’s god so as Afridi both are useless to our cricket since 2003 WC.
    we ain’t Yahweh rather yules means human beings created to worship One who creates everyone and everything.
    He didn’t create for Game Theory rather made us for God Theory but ye judas lovers but We are followers of Allah Agenda instead of Amerikan Agenda.
    My 1st pirority is your monetary system must redefine becuz you hold the purse strings and can bankrupt anyone without Justice ye created Great Depression and now Greatest Depression.usury is rampant with corruption.
    2nd your illusionary democracy must replace by Theo-democracy then World can turn “benign” place to rule instead of “belligerent.” wars and depressions is rampant You’re the biggest mass murderer of mankind on both sides holocaust and war on terror.
    if i rule the World then world would turn Benign place I’m pondering how to accomplish. im working on my Hypothesis.

    When UN was being created in 1945 the 1st act of UN was to established state of Israel aka state of Kabala
    Jis kabala ne hum sub ka kabara kya howa hai.
    UNO sister is WOrld Bank, didn’t ye listen Pastor Williams that How WB bankrupted Brazil.
    So demon is so flagitious that its hard to overcum at him who’s self-destructive and wants human souls.[killing]
    UN is nothing but a Tool for World Masters/Bankers who was/is being created to spread WASP imperialism.
    Imperialism is another name of fascism which cannot be accomplished without Communism which spawned wars so killings/murders will be rampant.
    They will hire mercenaries if their Shministim continue like Pakistani Army.
    We should start thinking to take 180 degree turn b4 burn in heLLucifer who’s basically Hell-God
    Are Sachin and Shoaib our gods?
    noW choose your God its up to your Free Will

    Note:Freedom lies to obey LORD, the One, the Creator, the Eternal: WOrship Him instead of Game theory/players
