MK Eldad mocks Halutz; says Israel can get by without him

"Theoretically and realistically, Israel can get along without [former chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen.] Dan Halutz," MK Arye Eldad (NU/NR) said Saturday evening, mocking Halutz's earlier comments that the Golan Heights is not indispensable to Israel. "Israel must pay heed, and do something if it doesn't want to return to the failures of the Second Lebanon War," of which, according to Eldad, Halutz is "a lawful patriarch." "In that war," the MK continued, "Halutz was exposed as someone who does not understand anything of the basic principles of war, and accordingly Israel saw that it didn't need his advice [anymore]."
