Caroline Glick confronts Meir Dagan and Gabi Ashkenazy over refusal to carry out order to bomb Iran (with video)carry out an order to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities.
Let's go to the videotape.
"In 2010, according to a report from 2012 on the Israeli news program Uvda, we learned that two of the men on this panel were given an order to prepare a strike against Iran's military installations and they refused," Glick said.Glick is 1000% correct. Too bad it won't help at all today.
"Because it was an illegal order," Dagan interjected.
"You were ordered by the security cabinet," Glick said.
"You don't know what happened there," Dagan answered.
"It is not in your expert legal opinion to determine whether or not the prime minister of Israel and defense minister of Israel have a right to order Israel to take action in its national defense. We would not be where we are today. We would not now be faced with a situation where no international coalition will be built, where now we are seeing the United States moving forward at the end of the month to conclude a nuclear agreement with Tehran that will enable them to acquire the bomb. We would be in a different position.," Glick charged.
Ashkenazi said that what Glick was saying was "stupid," later apologizing and saying he meant "insulting." He rejected the idea that the military echelon could prevent the political echelon from attacking Iran.
I cannot think of any other country in the West where something like this could happen.
