RESISTANCE AND MOTIVATION - MORAL, POLITICAL OR PERSONAL? ISRAELI SOLDIERS AS SELECTIVE CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTORS DURING THE INTIFADA
Abstract:A person's belief in the moral character of his own act is surely not the only court before which that act may be judged. While a reflective conscience is a necessary court, and a very important one, it is not a sufficient one. The audience would want to know whether the individual was acting conscientiously, and whether this way of acting might have moral and/or political motivation. The following paper utilizes Cohen's model for identification of the motivatio n for conscientious disobedience and develops a model of a personally motivated refusal as well.
