Moshe Yaalon recently told journalists that, in the words of The Washington Post's Molly Moore, "Israel's military tactics against the Palestinian population were too repressive and were fomenting explosive levels of 'hatred and terrorism' ... Crackdowns, curfews, and roadblocks in the West Bank and Gaza Strip were crippling the lives of innocent Palestinians, and that the military's tactics were now threatening Israel's own interests."
How were Israel's interests being hurt? By "increasing hatred for Israel and strengthening terrorist organizations?" Wise words to which I hope Israeli hawks and their American counterparts will attend. They just might, because Moshe Yaalon is not some gutless dove. He's a general and the chief of staff of Israel's armed forces.
