The Minister of Defense and the Chief of Staff were at loggerheads. The PM was silent, not wanting to be quoted later in one of the usual leaks of cabinet meetings. Bennet instead of contributing to a meaningful discussion decided to torpedo any suggestion by linking it to the return of Israelis from captivity.
"The chief of staff and defense establishment’s stance, which was presented to the cabinet, dealt with solutions to the urgent humanitarian needs—water, electricity, health, food and the sewerage system—which provide life and therefore shouldn’t be contingent on returning the soldiers and citizens."
Hope you all see this reasoning which is complete bs and tied like a corpse to religious pandering. Where did, "...which provide life..," come from. From religious panderers. Why didn't they say, "Kill a person before he kills you,"? Because they can't keep their religious bs straight. Eisenkot doesn't even know why he said it or if he did he is the sly above all animals.
