300 Israeli Cyberwarfare Reservists: ‘We Won’t Serve Criminal Gvt. Which Undermines Democracy’

Following the Knesset’s approval of a bill’s first reading, 300 reservists working for Israel’s elite cyberwarfare units have sent a letter stating they will not report for volunteer reserve duty.

The law would do away with the courts’ capacity to determine whether or not a decision was “reasonable.

“Today, the Netanyahu administration demonstrated its commitment to destroying the State of Israel.

The first step towards turning the State of Israel into a corrupt, dark, and weak state is passing the law to repeal the reasonability clause, the letter claims.

“Sensitive and potentially misused cyber capabilities must not be entrusted to a criminal government that undermines the foundations of democracy,” the reservists warn.

“There is a severe lack of trust in the government’s ability to control offensive cyber activity.

This is an obvious and present threat, as the letter claims.

“As a result, we, the 300 signatories, are quitting our voluntary reserve service right away. We won’t create tools for a corrupt system, and we won’t help with educating the next generation of cyber-soldiers, they continue.

Pilots and other special forces report for duty more frequently and voluntarily, frequently not during an emergency, due to the nature of their post, in contrast to the majority of reservists who are called up for service with a formal order from the IDF.

While stressing that no action will be taken against reservists who only threaten not to report for duty, the military has stated that it will discipline soldiers who refuse to report for duty when asked to do so.
