"The Palestinian Authority is a state of anarchy, and lawlessness is reigning in the Gaza Strip," said Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz on Friday in a speech to commercial and industrial leaders, adding that the Palestinian issue seemed like a problem whose solution was "far away." Halutz also said that Israel could not remain indifferent to Iran. "Iran has an extreme ideology with the will to attain nuclear capability - a combination which puts the destruction of Israel on its flag," he said. "We need to be prepared for this insane possibility," Halutz continued, saying that Iran's fulfillment of its nuclear program would be an existential threat. In addition, the chief of staff said that Syria was armed with similar missiles to Hizbullah.
