Thirteen Israeli commandos refuse to be part of a "rule of oppression". In other words, they refuse to "just follow orders", and when they consider those orders immoral, and just plain wrong, they refuse.
"We will no longer corrupt the stamp of humanity in us through carrying out the missions of an occupation army ... In the past, we fought for a justified cause [but today] we have reached the boundary of oppressing another people," the letter said.

Congratulations and thanks to these very very brave soldiers.

Meanwhile, The New Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg is another hero- for not only lamenting the crap that gets passed off as art, but providing an explanation of why this happens, and providing alternatives.

Rock on!
