The IDF has no political control, The political control in Israel is in the back pocket of the IDF. I can only dream that there will come a day when the elected government will be the master of the house. Until such a time this is nothing but a military/police dictatorship under the guise of democracy. The military "allows" the running of the government so as to use it as an endless funds barrel No different from the "elected" ultra orthodox who "allow" the government until it even dreams about "encroaching" on the haredi "sensitivities. Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase spare us.
