Two years before Hezbollah kidnapped our soldiers and fired thousands of rockets into our cities, this same Reuven Pedatzur recommended that Israel adopt a perpetual policy of avoiding conflict with Hezbollah - who, Pedatzur said, is is very responsible and "restrained". He assured us that Nasrallah wants only to "preserve the status quo created in the north after the IDF's departure", and that Hezbollah would never take any aggressive action unless first provoked by an act of "Israeli aggression". If you think I'm making all this up, then read it for yourself: http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/objects/pages/PrintArticleEn.jhtml?itemNo=465064 Today, instead of hanging his head in shame, Pedatzur is pontificating to us once again that we should rest easy, and stop worrying about the impending production of nuclear weapons by the the psychotic maniacs who rule Iran, and are promising every day to "wipe Israel off the map". Anybody who continues to take Pedatzur seriously is an idiot.
