Most of the people who brought us an unnecessary, preventable war in the Gaza Strip in summer 2014, 51 days with no victory, are also involved in what’s happening today – a steady, dangerous slide toward the possibility of an even worse military conflict with Iran.

Benjamin Netanyahu, Benny Gantz and Aviv Kochavi were all there that wretched summer, though the latter two have since been promoted – respectively, from chief of staff to defense minister and from head of Military Intelligence to chief of staff. Then-Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon is no longer in the picture.
