Ahmet Davutoglu calls for party unity, says he will never utter a word against Erdogan.15:08 05.05.16 | 0 comments
The IDF under Ashkenazi kept it's head down and tried to stay out of trouble, with one glaring exception. The IDF response to the Turkish flotilla was a disaster, criticized by most of the world. In the end, even Israeli officials and IDF spokesmen admitted that the IDF response was "flawed". Admitting error is something Israel does not do, so this was significant. This is Ashkenazi's legacy. Even if he did not personally plan the operation, he is still the man with the plan. The result was to sink Israel's political fortune to an even lower level than ever before. On the bright side, Ashkenazi was better than his predecessor, Dan Halutz. Halutz's legacy is the 2006 war, although fortunately for him, I think he was fired before the Gaza op.
