Israeli soldiers speak out for the first time about the truth of the Palestinian occupation, in one of the most important books on Israel/Palestine in this generation. ( The New York Review of Books ). The very name of the Israel Defence Forces - which many Israelis speak of as the most moral army in the world - suggests that its primary mission is the defines of the country's territory. Indeed, both internationally and within Israel, support for the occupation of Palestinian territory rests on the belief that the army's actions and presence in the West Bank and Gaza are essentially defensive and responsive, aimed at protecting the country from terror. But Israeli soldiers themselves tell a profoundly different story. In this landmark work, which includes hundreds of soldiers' testimonies collected over a decade, what emerges is a broad policy that is anything but defensive. In their own words, the soldiers reveal in human and vivid detail how the key planks of the army's ostensibly protective program - prevention of terror, separation of populations, preservation of the fabric of life, and law enforcement - have in fact served to accelerate acquisition of Palestinian land, cripple all normal political and social life, and ultimately thwart the possibility of independence.
