Israelis appealed to pilots not to bomb Iran2012-08-16 14:06
Several hundred people, including academics, have signed a letter calling on the Israeli Air Force pilots to say "no" in response to the order to attack Iranian nuclear facilities, the Rosbalt reported.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"We appeal to you out of a deep sense of anxiety and concern about the situation in which the state of Israel is. We appeal to you in the light of the information revealed to us through the media and in view of what is happening behind the scenes and now can become known too late. We do not know your name, marital status, or political views, but we know one thing - our fate and future is largely in your hands", said in the letter.
The authors of the letter appeal to the pilots asking them to weigh the ability to refuse to obey, rendering a major service to the state of Israel and all its inhabitants, much more important than blind obedience to particular order".
Meanwhile, according to the BBC, Israeli Minister of Civil Defense Matan Vilnai stated that in the event of hostilities with Iran, the conflict would last for about a month. The minister said that if Iran begins missile firing of Israeli towns, over 500 people in the country can be killed.
Vilnai also said that Israel was ready for such developments, and in case of attack on Iranian nuclear facilities it will coordinate actions with the United States.
