Benjamin Netanyahu voiced doubt in Israel’s ability to prevail in a future war. The Israeli opposition leader made the remark Tuesday when asked about mounting reports of incompetence in the government and military around the recent war with Hezbollah. “I have come to this conclusion in light of the way the Lebanon war was handled, as well as the aftermath,” Netanyahu told Israel Radio. “The government is conducting a policy of weakness, restraint and concessions to terrorism.”
