JERUSALEM, Jan 27 (Reuters) - An Israeli intelligence officer who feared a planned air strike would kill innocent Palestinians foiled the attack by holding back information critical to the mission, the Maariv newspaper said on Monday.

The world needs more people like this.

That's for sure.

quote:
The officer, who was not identified, told a military tribunal he acted out of conscience, saying innocent people would have been killed and calling his orders illegal under international law, the newspaper reported.

Good for him for choosing not to participate in Sharon's re-election campaign.

Israeli officer tried for sabotaging raid

quote:
The Israeli newspaper Ma'ariv quoted colleagues of the lieutenant as saying he became suspicious about the order when he was asked to identify a building and find out how many people were likely to be in it at the time of the attack. It is more usual for intelligence officers to be asked to identify specific individuals the army wants to target and their whereabouts.
