This morning, the Israeli newspaper Maariv published a letter allegedly written and signed by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, urging military personnel, including fighter pilots, to disobey the orders of their government on matters of national security.

However, according to a Colonel in the Israeli army, a group of IDF reservists, called “consensus”, was behind the publication of the letter.  Shai Aviv, a Lieutenant in the IDF told Israel’s Channel 2 news that the letter borders on anarchy, and claiming that IDF soldiers should refuse orders is unacceptable.

“Fighters and pilots,” the letter reads, “…Democracy requires you to go with your conscience and to respect the decisions of the government. Netanyahu’s government does not have a democratic mandate and has no right to make decisions, and you need to show courage and not break. It is your duty to refuse an elected government that has no legal mandate. You are obligated to place a red line for the sake of peace.”

    If this guy is so good at writing mock letters in Farsi, why doesn’t he send one to the Iranian people to rebel against Ahmadinejad and co.? Why beat around the bush?
    Shana tova!

    Tell Ahmedinajad in good Australian slang: To nicky woop.
    If he doesn’t know what this means, reommend him to a taxidermist.
