IDF Chief Gantz: Remember our soldiers on Passover

Israel Defense Force Chief Of Staff Benny Gantz wishes Israel a happy Passover, and asks citizens to keep a thought for the soldiers who remain on watch.



Last Tuesday, Gantz broke with Israeli tradition and ordered all units to cancel the long-customary Passover leaves and remain on full alert over the holiday.

Over the years, an army-wide break during Passover became a tradition followed by all major military units, including the Air Force, Navy and intelligence corps.   Even the IDF headquarters building in Tel Aviv became a “no man’s land” during Passover in previous years.

Gantz – who explained his decision saying that he “does not accept” the notion of a military “going on vacation” – said soldiers will have to divide their vacation days among themselves to ensure their units remain at full strength.


As millions of Israelis prepare to celebrate the Passover seder on Friday night, the IDF will join them at bases around the country.


Vacations and breaks will be plentiful when evil is once and for all time put down like a rabid dog.

Until then………

Shema Yisroel, Adonai Elohenu, Adonai Echad.

Molon Labe.
