Omer Goldman is an Israeli who was sentenced to 21 days in military prison for refusing to serve the Israel Defence Forces on 22 September 2008, along with Tamar Katz and Mia Tamarin. She has spent a second term in prison for refusing to serve again.

“In Israel, after you finish high school, you have to join the army immediately … when it was my time to join the Israeli army, I refused, because I am against the fact that the Israeli army is occupying the Palestinian territories and the Palestinian people. I won’t take part in a system that commits war crimes and crimes against humanity.”
-Omer Goldman
