Quote of the Day

The IDF does not operate by slogans, such as "when one is coming to kill you, arise early to kill him". I don't want a soldier emptying his magazine on a girl with scissors.

Gilad Erdan, the Minister of Internal Security, has since confirmed that such a thing has never happened, so Eizenkot's comments are out of place. Eizenkot's words have understandably raised a bit of a ruckus.

I guess Eizemkot's approach is the reason why most of the work protecting citizens in the current wave of terror stabbings has been left largely to arms-bearing citizens... Maybe Eizenkot should find a better approach, even if it does not entail soldiers emptying magazines of bullets into scissors-wielding young girls, and take responsibility for the country's security...
