Former IDF head Benny Gantz stopped Benjamin Netanyahu from attacking Iran.
Speaking to Ilana Dayan, host of Channel 2’s Uvda newsmagazine, Lt. Gen. (res.) Benny Gantz said he felt that without his presence and input in high-level government discussions, other decisions might have been made.
“It never reached, ‘OK, take off and fly,’” said Gantz in the interview, which is set to air Monday night in Israel. But he added: “I want to believe they listened and took into consideration what I have to say.”
But his legacy may be shaped by inaction against Iran’s nuclear program. The decision to strike was not his to make, but his opposition to a strike during this period, together with the reported opposition of several other security chiefs in recent years, may have helped prevent the political decision to carry it out.
Gantz, who retired in February after 38 years of service, also revealed a dispute between the political leadership, which was moving toward a military strike, and the IDF, opposed to such a move. Despite the disagreement, the army would implement such a strike if ordered to do so by the political leadership, Gantz affirmed.
Gantz’s period as chief of staff was a tumultuous one, as he found himself shepherding the IDF through the instabilities caused by the Arab uprisings, the rise and fall of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the cyclonic civil war in Syria, and the ever deteriorating security situation along Israel’s northern and southern borders.

In am not a military scholar. And I am not able to say if its still possible for Israel to strike the Iranian nuclear weapons program.
But what I do know, is that the Israeli leadership shall surrender to the demands of the last and final antichrist.
Now we know that a head of the IDF hold the same position as the Pentagon. That a military strike on Iran will not be able to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Only “a peace deal” will do the needful. And this “peae deal” is promoted by Obama, and supported by about half of the Israelies.
Secular Israel has become like rest of the World.
Benjamin Netanyahu gave an oat to the people of Israel. “Iran shall not be able to develop a nuclear bomb on my watch”. Now Benjamin Netanyahu might be into his last month of governance, and Iran just a few months away from making “peace” with what the Ayatollah calls a Greater Satan.
So the Iranian revolution of 1979 seems to have won. And Israel seems to slowly approach the age of submission. This age will be an intermesso of evil that will last for some few years.
This is not the time to weep. All believers in the World of God must rejoice. All who deeply and sincerely works for the Messiah, and awaits His second comming.
Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
Because an Israeli surrender to the antichrist must come first. Next we shall all experience the return of the Messiah. Yeshua is the Messiah. We can expect no one else.
