From United With Israel, 03/20/14 –
In light of last week’s hostilities with Islamic Jihad, IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz lays down the gauntlet.
During a presentation on Wednesday to a high school in Gan Yavne in southern Israel, IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz was alarmingly candid.
“If we want to make sure that nothing will come from there, we need to retake Gaza,” he asserted.
Asked why IDF forces had not already done so, he said: “The decision to ‘sleep on it’ is a strategic move.”
His is the latest voice in a chorus of cries from the Israeli leadership that the time has come to act decisively.
“The God of my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge; my Savior, You save me from violence.” 2 Sam 22:3
