    But, doesn’t all the finger pointing at “political indecision” and the like imply that with better leadreship IDF could have had a real winning strategy; i.e we are still in the midst of kochi v’otzem yadi, at least in principle!

    Ein Somchim Al haNes, we do not count on miracles. The Israeli government and military are supposed to manage themselves in such a way that G-d will not need to bail them out with obvious miracles.

    “Clearly the results of the war have been a big blow to the kochi ve’otzem yadi crowd”

    if good performance can be explained by either kochi or yad hashem, poor performance can just as easily be explained by lack of yad hashem as by loack of kochi.

  4. Jewish Observer says:

    “the kochi ve’otzem yadi crowd”

    the gedolim do not characterize it as two crowds, but 2 forces within each person. we should not raise ourselves above it.

    I believe the name of the Golan hero was Avigdor Kahalani.

    Ralph Kiner (former Pirate slugger and Mets broadcaster) was quoted once as saying:

    “It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, but where you place the blame”.
