Ex-Israeli pilot: ‘Our army is a terrorist organization run by war criminals’

A former Israeli Air Force pilot, Yonatan Shapira, has described the Israeli government and army as “terrorist organisations” run by “war criminals.”

Captain Shapira, who had resigned from the Israeli army in 2003 at the height of the Palestinian Second Intifada, explained in an exclusive interview with Anadolu News Agency why he realized after joining the army that he was “part of a terrorist organization.”

I realized during the Second Intifada what the Israeli Air Force and the Israeli military are doing are war crimes, terrorizing a population of millions of Palestinians. When I realized that, I decided to not just leave but to organize other pilots that will publicly refuse to take part in these crimes.”

he stated.

“As a child in Israel, you are being brought up in very strong Zionist militaristic education. You don’t know almost anything about Palestine, you don’t know about the 1948 Nakba, you don’t know about ongoing oppression,” Shapira said.
