The retreat was a disater for all the reasons mentioned above - essentially signalling defeat and weakness, giving ground to our enemies and betraying our allies but Sneh is disingenuous at best when he claims he opposed it. He was a labor minister- deputy defence no less- and he held collective responsibility with govt. decisions. He did not resign, he did not campaign against it, he did not speak out publicly against it. Indeed he campaigned as a labor member for the party that clearly said it would retreat in its manifesto. Israel is in a mess because of Sneh and his friends on the Left who are ever-willing to surrender to our enemies from Sinai to Judea and Samaria and Gaza, all territory handed to Arabs will lead to disaster. Israel must aim to gain ground in the next war and hezbollah must be made aware of this.
