Full text of the letter from the thirteen reservists
To: Prime Minister Ariel Sharon
We, citizens who serve in active reserve duty, soldiers and officers, Sayeret Matkal veterans, have also chosen to join the front guard in the way we have been trained. With grave concern for the future of Israel as a democratic Zionist and Jewish state, and with concern for her moral image ï¿½ we can no longer stand asside.
We tell you today:
We fear for the fate of the children of this land, exposed to an evil that is unnecessary, and to which we have lent our hands. We have long transgressed the limits of soldiers, just in their ways, and have become fighters suppressing another nation.
We shall not cross this limit anymore.
We stress and declare: We shall continue to protect the State of Israel and the security of its people from all enemies.
“He who dares ï¿½ wins.”
