Major General Dan Halutz, the IDF Chief of Staff, has finally decided to resign. Good news, but not good enough. Last summer, during the war against Lebanon, we demanded his resignation due to the war crimes the Israeli military forces were committing under his command. Following the war’s end, reserve soldiers and officers called for his resignation, due to his miserable failure as head of a powerful military, defeated by a relatively small guerilla group. Half a year after his failure in Lebanon, and while the Winograd Commission has not yet issued the conclusions of its official inquiry on the Lebanon war, Dan Halutz decided to anticipate the expected recommendations and resign.

The fact that this man will no longer command the Israeli military, however, is certainly not enough. He must also be put on trial for war crimes, as Yesh Gvul, the reserve soldiers movement, has been petitioning the Israeli Supreme Court to do for more than three years.

He must be put on trial for the numerous war crimes committed in Lebanon under his command, and particularly the bombing of cities, villages, and car convoys of civilians trying to escape the combat zones, as well as for the bombing of electric power plants and other Lebanese civilian infrastructure.

But, more specifically, for his decision, in July 2002, to bomb a residential building in Gaza, where dozens of civilians, including many children, lost their lives; a building in which military intelligence had located Hamas leader Salah Shehadeh. The massacre of the Daraj neighborhood in Gaza that day, is only one of many such war crimes, but it will be remembered as a special event because of the reaction of Halutz. When interviewed by the Israeli media about the many civilian casualties, he explained that he felt no remorse or anything else, outside “a slight tremor in the wing of the airplane,” at the very second the bomb was dropped ...
