Associates close to Netanyahu and Ya'alon called draft review of Operation Protective Edge 'an unserious report that reeks of politicking.'12:47 06.05.16 | 0 comments
The Prime Minister is not the commander in chief. The army oath of allegience is not to the State, but to "The Jewish People and their Land". which is, shall we say, open to interpretation. The Chief of staff is effectively Viceroy of the Territories and with a four year term he will significantly outlast the average government. And there have been mutinies before - Levi Eskhol anyone?
