Si Vis Pacem...

To all those who thought and feared that the IDF's spirit, courage, audacity, cunning, and boundaryless confidence had vanished and gone - Fear Not.

They seem to be back, epitomized by its current Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz. His interview in today's Jerusalem Post is a must-read:

If they escalate terrorism, we'll escalate our actions to counter terrorism. And in the end, we can reduce terrorism to almost zero. I'll never say absolute zero, but close. And the fact is that in 2004, terrorism dropped to the lowest levels in four years. And the same in 2005.

Furthermore, this is exactly the right message to send to those EUroweenies who would imprison every Israeli who ever defended his country against Hitler's grandchildren:

IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz almost dares someone to invite him to London.
He's even prepared to sit in jail to prove Israel is legitimate in its war on terrorism.

Next Year in Teheran?
