Showing the whole picture of militarism in Israeli society

Kinneret Golan Hoz grew up learning that to be a good citizen, she had to be a good soldier. It's an idea that is deeply entrenched in Israeli society, she says. Indeed, she herself served as an officer in the Israeli army.

But Kinneret’s belief in peace and justice compelled her, as an adult, to refuse to be part of the mainstream. “If you do not want to be part of the problem, then you have to be part of the solution,” she says.
