Reservist
Is Sentenced

Tel Aviv (JTA) — For the
first time ever, an Israel
Defense Force reservist with
right-wing sympathies has
been tried and jailed for
refusing a call-up for
military service.
In the past, scores of reser-
vists with left-leaning sym-
pathies have been detained
in military stockades for
refusing to carry out their
duties in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip.
Their refusal to respond to
call-up orders was typically
based on the grounds of con-
scientious objection to
undertaking police duties in
the territories, where armed
reservists often find them-
selves in head-on confronta-
tions with rock-throwing
youths.
Their punishments gen-
erally ran from 14 to 28
days' detention in military
stockades. But many of them
have served consecutive
terms for rejecting new call-
up orders that were handed
them as they left the army
stockade after their initial
prison term.
Now the first so-called
right-wing "refusenik" has
been sentenced for refusing
to obey a call-up order. His
refusal was a protest against
the government's peace
policy.
The incident occurred,
however, before Israel and
the Palestinians reached a
preliminary agreement for
Palestinian self-rule in the
Gaza Strip and the West
Bank town of Jericho.
Reserve Capt. Mordechai
Karpel, 40, a resident of the
Bat Ayin settlement in the
Etzion bloc south of
Jerusalem, sent a letter to
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin a month ago, refusing
a reserve call-up notice.
He stated that Mr. Rabin's
policy was "leading une-
quivocally to the estab-
lishment of an alien state in
the Land of Israel."
Capt. Karpel was sent
home at the time without
any action taken.
But he again rejected the
order and sent a second
letter to Mr. Rabin, who also
retains the portfolio of
Israel's Defense Ministry.
Capt. Karpel was this time
put on trial for refusing an
IDF order and was sentenced
to 14 days' detention.
It was not clear whether
Capt. Karpel's call-up
notices ordered him to serve
in the West Bank and the
Gaza Strip or at camps
within Israel proper. ❑
