The End of Week Quote

"For me, the word 'responsibility' is very significant … My concept of responsibility is what led me to remain in my position until this point, and to place this letter on your desk today."

The chief of Israel's armed forces, Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz.
The General resigned this week over the criticisms of the military's conduct of operations in last summer's war in Lebanon. His departure follows the completion of dozens of military inquiries into the largest Israeli action since 1982.
Good bad, or indifferent as a general – and there are many different views – one cannot fault his style or his sense of honour. Not a few British politicians might take note.
