Beyond the Limit
In Israel, they say the army is the second most sacred institution after God. But today some Israeli soldiers are choosing to go to jail rather than serve in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. In the wake of this month's election,
Heart of the Matter examines the crisis of conscience raised by the Palestinian Intifada or uprising. Joan Bakewell talks to the 'refuseniks' whose refusal to fight reflects their belief that their country's position in the occupied territories is indefensible.
