Analysis: In Eisenkot we trust?

Since becoming IDF chief of staff in February, Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot has repeatedly said that he knows that the army’s greatest asset is “public trust.” The newly released Locker Commission report about the defense budget and its ramifications is an excellent opportunity for him to prove that his words are not just a slogan.

The report is an important document that, if adopted – and it deserves to be adopted – could generate a genuine social, economic and military revolution. It was written out of deep respect for the IDF and a conviction in the importance of the army and its personnel who are serving the State of Israel. But it was also written with the intention of improving the efficacy of the army and making it trimmer, stronger, and more operational.
