Israel Elections: 130 former IDF officers call on Gantz to quit race
"Benny, enough," the ad states. "You tried everything, now put the country first."

The pressure on Defense Minister Benny Gantz to quit the March 23 election intensified on Monday when 130 former senior IDF officers published a letter calling for him to remove his Blue and White Party from the race. The list of IDF officers includes many who were Gantz’s commanders, including former IDF chiefs of staff Ehud Barak and Dan Halutz. It also includes many officers who served directly under him in the army and worked with him closely.

“Benny, enough,” the ad states. “You tried everything, now put the country first.” The ad praises Gantz for following his conscience in the past and calls upon him to display courage before it is too late. “The time has come to make your final decision as a leader and leave this dangerous election, which will leave you below the electoral threshold and leave another party outside,” the officers wrote. “Do not permit votes to be wasted in the camp advocating change. Israel is wounded and has hit new depths. Israel will salute you.”
