Eretz Yisrael Time

Nine different Generals came to visit my friend’s reserve army unit after the war.

The Ramatkal (Chief of Staff) was also supposed to visit but after the hard time the 9 generals got he chickened out.

General Gantz (the head of all IDF ground units) came to the unit to explain what happened and to tell them we won the war (since it wasn’t obvious to anyone that we did). At the end he asked if anyone had questions.

One soldier got up, and said, “I have 2 questions for you, a personal question and an operational question.”

He continued, “My personal question is regarding the statement you made a year ago. You see I am a settler and I volunteered to fight in the IDF, and I want to know if after 100% of us settlers showed up to fight and die, do you still stand by your statement that "settlers are worse than Hizbollah"?”

For his second question he asked, “How come you sent in us ground units without first destroying all the enemy sniper positions and houses overlooking us?”

For the first question, he actually denied he said what he said, adding that “Aryeh Eldad is just trying to get brownie points”, but then he said that he doesn’t take back a word of what he said. I guess that means he did say it and still thinks its true.

Regarding the second question, he answered the tanks destroyed most houses marked as Hizbollah sites.

Unfortunately Gantz forgot to mention that most of the houses were apparently not marked.

At this point, the flustered Gantz had enough and ran away like all the other generals that visited this elite reserve unit.

Consider carefully what Gantz said.

They destroyed only a few buildings which were identified at some time that Hizbollah were using - while leaving all the rest for Hizbollah to freely use afterwards.

Is that rational military thought?

How could they think so backwards to openly endanger our troops like that.

Even the most green private would know to destroy the rest of the buildings if you knew that Hizbollah was active and 100% running around the entire village.

If you read Gantz's pearls of wisdom you see a great evolvement. 1 year ago he was saying that if Hizbullah and Syria mess with us they would be set 50 years back. During this miserable war they were talking about Hizbullah only being set back 20 years and not a word about Syria. Now he is doing the road show to convince our soldiers we were not set back 20 years. What next? Who will be set back ands how many years?

He should have been a poet and not a general.

You guys are making it really hard on me. Now, that's another general I have to feed a piece of my cut up reserve duty card. It's already in teeny tiny pieces. How many more of these types of Oberleutenants are there in the IDF?

I find it surprising that so many people find it surprising that there are so many slime balls in the upper ranks of the IDF. We know how corrupt the government, the political parties, the SHABAK, the media, the Supreme Court, the Police and so many other government bodies are, why should the IDF be exempt from the rot? Because of the myth of the "holy IDF"? Remember Air Force Aluf Rami Dotan that stole 12 million (shekels or dollars-don't remember) and is believed to have stolen far more and took bribes to buy defective jet engines for the Air Force? This was some years ago. You think he is the only one like that? TIME TO GROW UP AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY and not let this scum continue to drive the country into the abyss.

It seems that there are no such complications when destroying Jewish houses in the Territories.

There needs to be a revolution.
