Fellow 9/11 truth supporters:

I just received this via Liza Earle (Vermont Impeachment movement).  I
assume that it's a real situation.  I encourage everbody to contact Senator
McConnell and to take any other action that may possibly be helpful.  Please
forward this information widely.  Thank you.

This is all the info I have please be aware and forward this to whoever can
help. I believe his home state is Kentucky.  He's asking for a civilian
attorney. Thank You. Lisa Cantu.

This is his e-mail address eleonai.israel@yahoo.com

Initial message:

Things have escalated in the last 12 hours, and I need your (and anyone else
who cans) help. I have finally sided with my conviction, and voiced my
beliefs about the governments involvement in 9/11, and my belief that this
"war" was staged. My company commander responded by acting as though he was
going to attack me, he came across as seriously unstable and violent,
initially they took my weapon and ganged up me. Things have only gotten
worse.

I have told them that I will no longer play a "combat role" in this conflict
or "protect corporate representatives", and they have taken this as
"violating a direct order". I may be in jail or worse in the next 24 hours.

Please rally whoever you can, call whoever you can, bring as much attention
to this as you can. I have no doubt that the military will bury me and hide
the whole situation if they can. I'm in big trouble. I'm in the middle of
Iraq, surrounded by people who are not on my side. Please help me. Please
contact whoever you can, and tell them who I am, so I don't "disappear".

My original email: 

Yesterday, June 19, 26-year-old SPC Eli Israel put himself at great personal
risk by making the courageous decision to refuse further participation in
the U.S. occupation of Iraq.  Eli told his commanding officer and sergeants
that he will no longer be a combatant in this illegal, unjustified war.  Eli
believes that the U.S. government used the attacks of September 11, 2001 as
a pretense to invade Iraq and that "we are now violating the people of this
country (Iraq) in ways that we would never accept on our own soil."  Eli is
stationed at Camp Victory in Baghdad with JVB Bravo Company, 1-149 Infantry
of the Kentucky Army National Guard.  This soldier's decision to refuse
orders puts him at great risk, especially because he is in Iraq, isolated
from legal assistance and other support.  The following is a message that
Eli sent yesterday to a friend back home:

"I have told them that I will no longer play a 'combat role' in this
conflict or 'protect corporate representatives,' and they have taken this as
'violating a direct order.'  I may be in jail or worse in the next 24 hours.

Please rally whoever you can, call whoever you can, bring as much attention
to this as you can. I have no doubt that the military will bury me and hide
the whole situation if they can. I'm in big trouble. I'm in the middle of
Iraq, surrounded by people who are not on my side. Please help me. Please
contact whoever you can, and tell them who I am, so I don't 'disappear.'"

Eli is taking an incredible risk by refusing orders in Iraq and will most
likely be court martialed.  Please help him by contacting his Senator and
requesting that he take any steps necessary to support and protect this
soldier and ensure that the Army respects his rights and does not illegally
retaliate against him.
