Even if one believes that Israel should end the occupation now, instantly, unilaterally, bilaterally, completely, according to all demands by the Palestinians including the "return" of third generations refugees to Israel - the chief of staff still needs to be selected by military standards, and not by standards of political vision. The nobel price in economics is not received for achievements in literature. Gideon Levy may dislike Generals in general (see his list), but that doesn't mean that they were bad as soldiers (as unimportant as Levy may believe this is). And the next chieff of staff won't have "enormous power", even if the "the leadership is weak", since we live in a system, where the government is the commander in chief. In a democracy one can acually have a leadership which is visionless and weak, yet commands a most powerful military. The choice of the chief of staff has absolutely nothing to do with it!
