Israel’s top soldier in first ever Saudi press interview

Saudi newspaper Elaph on Thursday published an interview with the Israeli military chief, Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, the first time an Israeli chief of staff has been interviewed by a Saudi publication. Eisenkot called Iran the “biggest threat to the region.” He also asserted that Israel has no intention of initiating an attack on Hizballah in Lebanon, saying, “we see Iranian attempts to bring about an escalation, but I don’t see a high chance for this at the moment.”

    Dayan had much better looks! Plus his wear down on binoculars was only half the IDF standard rate.

      Don’t let his looks deceive you, he is from the infamous Golani Brigade. Training was and still is brutal in this unit.
      They carry more ammo and weapons then any other infantry unit in the world, their forced hikes are long and grueling, doing 60 miles in a night is normal for them while fully equiped. This at basic training, after that they specialize and become even more lethal…. The special units in the IDF even go beyond this, with longs months of sleep deprivation, and the list goes on… Any standard IDF infantry platoon outguns any other platoon in the world period, more bullets per soldier and heavy weapons.

    Not the biggest threat, the biggest threat in the region.

    Lying infidels are going to pay if they don’t send us Rabbi Nachman. If they do they will have the opportunity to repent and live good lives afterwards.

    Only Sam Popack the new Lubavitch Meshiach can help the region with his divine powers.
