Adam  KELLER אדם קלר

Adam Keller (born 1955 in Tel Aviv-Yafo) is an Israeli peace activist who was among the founders of Gush Shalom [The Peace Bloc founded and led by former Irgun and Knesset Member and journalist, Uri Avnery, in 1993], of which he is a spokesperson.

A long-standing supporter of Yesh Gvul*, Keller has served several prison terms for refusing reserve military duty in the 1967-occupied territories.

In the Court Martial which drew considerable public attention in April-May 1988, Reserve Corporal Adam Keller was charged with "insubordination" and "spreading of propaganda harmful to military discipline" in that while on active military duty he had written on 117 tanks and other military vehicles graffiti with the text: "Soldiers of the IDF, refuse to be occupiers and oppressors, refuse to serve in the occupied territories!" [1] as well as placing on electricity pylons in the military camp where he was serving - and on inside doors of the stalls in the officers' toilet - stickers with the slogans "Down with the occupation!". Keller was convicted and sentenced to three months imprisonment.[2] Keller was an active member of Yesh Gvul, but declared that he had done his act on his own without consulting anybody else. For its part, the movement did not take responsibility for his act, but did provide his wife with the financial support given to the families of refusers.

In April 2004 he was a member of a Gush Shalom delegation who visited Palestinian National Authority leader Yasser Arafat at his headquarters in Ramallah to protest at what they claim was an Ariel Sharon, Israel's prime minister, threat against Arafat's life.

Keller has authored Terrible Days: Social Divisions and Political Paradoxes in Israel (CYPRES Amstelveen 1987; ISBN 90-71261-02-6).

Since 1983 he has been the editor of The Other Israel bi-monthly newsletter of the struggle for Israeli-Palestinian peace (ISSN 0792-4615)

*Yesh Gvul, "Enough is enough"[1]) is a movement founded in 1982, at the outbreak of the Lebanon War, by combat veterans,  who refused to serve in Lebanon and has expanded its opposition to the war in Lebanon to the negation of service in the occupied territories, reflected in the current slogan: “We don’t shoot, we don’t cry, and we don’t serve in the occupied territories !”
