After all, why you do think they are quivering in their boots each time the word “Hizbullah” comes up?
The most significant result of the recent conflict in Lebanon is a change to the balance of fear in the Middle East, and this is why Israel has been resisting the fact that its army got defeated by Hezbollah fighters in the war.
But after months of denial, Israel admitted finally that Hezbollah won the war.
Speaking at a Tel Aviv news conference summing up the Israeli armyâ€™s investigation of its behavior during the war, Israeli chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz, whoâ€™s under fire because of the shortcomings of the war, conceded that the military made serious errors during the war. However, he rejected calls to resign as a result, saying only if the committee called for his resignation, he would comply. â€œI have not heard my superiors calling on me to resign,â€ he said. â€œIf they do, I will respond.â€
