Lt. Major (Res.) Oded Torah has shown strength in taking on Amos Oz.
In an advert in Haaretz on February 14, he attacked Amos Oz and Friends:-
The gist is that Oz and his fellow "intellectuals", the writers and the thinkers, should simply shut up as they aren't strategists.
"What's your authority," Tirah asks, "to advise the people of Israel on these matters such as entering Gaza in a ground operation? Are you professionals?"
He claims they display simplicity and professional shallowness. This, instead of improving national values such as solidarity and mutual responsibility. Where are they, he writes, when the state is breaking its social contract with the citizens to be defended and protected.
Dear Amos Oz: Your words are returning us to the Galut
and are weakening our stance.
