Morality's chief of staff
Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi is a moral and ethical paragon who stands atop an organization that is no less moral or ethical. Last week, he broke his silence and proved his acute sensitivity to matters of conscience: "We have not one gram of tolerance," the chief of staff said in a loud and clear voice, referring to those who had hazed soldiers. "We ought to view this incident as a reminder of the high ethical threshold expected of us," he said in a clear and crisp voice, referring to the affair involving Brig. Gen. Imad Fares.
