Israeli Chief of Staff reveals his outlook on issues of security in a conference of Rabbis today .
"Chief of Staff Major General Moshe Ya'alon said today that Israel must emerge victorious in the current armed conflict, so the Palestinians understand that they may gain nothing through terror". According to Ynet (the (Hebrew) online version of Yediot Aharonot) he also said that the present Palestinian leadership does not recognize Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state and is trying to implement the "Stages Plan". He also said that the withdrawal from Lebanon was a mistake, and that we must not withdraw unilaterally from the territories. There's more, Syria, Iran, Iraq, the works. I'm too lazy to translate it all, knowing it'll probably be all over the place in English tomorrow.
