Israeli war cabinet member Benny Gantz has resigned from Benjamin Netanyahu's government, delivering a blow to the prime minister who has been celebrating the rare rescue of hostages held in Gaza.

"Netanyahu prevents us from moving forward to a real victory [in Gaza]," Gantz said in a televised statement Sunday in which he described leaving the government as a "complex and painful" decision.

"Gantz " considered Netanyahu's main political challenger " said he was quitting eight-months after the October 7 Hamas attacks because "the situation in the country and in the decision-making room has changed."

He accused Netanyahu of putting his own personal political considerations ahead of a post-war strategy for the Gaza Strip, claiming that "fateful strategic decisions are met with hesitancy and procrastination due to political considerations," and urged the prime minister to hold an election in the coming months.

"I call on Netanyahu: set an agreed election date. Do not let our people be torn apart," Gantz said.

The decision by Gantz fulfils an ultimatum he gave the prime minister last month calling on him to lay out a new plan for the war against Hamas by June 8."

Did Houthi successfully strike the USS Eisenhower? I hope not, but there appears to be debate.

Is there widespread use of using white phosphorus and depleted uranium against civilians in Gaza and Lebanon? Again, I certainly hope not, but that's not up for debate.

Oh, that Zionism had but one neck..

Both Gantz and Eisenkot believe that the war can"and should"be paused, for some months at least, to allow for the release of the surviving hostages (Israeli intelligence believes at least 43 out of the 120 are dead) and to start building an alternative authority to run Gaza instead of Hamas. However, Netanyahu has refused to accept these policies, leading to their decision to resign.
