Liberman: Israel doesn’t have luxury of ‘wars of choice’

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman struck a pragmatic and restrained tone during his first speech in his new role on Monday.

In an address to the IDF General Staff, Liberman said, “We do not have the luxury of managing wars of choice. As the society in Israel, we are only authorized to manage wars of no choice, and we must win them.”

Liberman said the role of the IDF in Israeli society “is much more significant than that of militaries in other countries,” due it being a people’s army.
