Israel is unique in being a country that is constantly under existential threat. There is little question that the majority of Arab governments and the Iranian one would like nothing more than to destroy Israel. One day they may be able to accept Israel but it will still take time. Meanwhile, Winograd justifies my own misgivings from the beginning with the Kadima Cabinet. Israel needs experienced and successful ex IDF military for both Prime and Defense Ministers. Anything else can lead to the failures as in Lebanon and that is something Israel cannot afford again. And we can be sure that more conflict will happen soon. So this is an urgent issue.
