Benjamin Gantz is an Israeli army officer and politician, who served as the 20th Chief of General Staff of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) from February 2011 to February 2015. In December 2018, he established a new political party named Israel Resilience. The party later allied itself with Telem and Yesh Atid to form Kachol Lavan, lit. ’Blue and White’, the colours of the Israeli national flag. Gantz's Blue and White party platform includes introducing prime ministerial term limits, barring indicted politicians from serving in the Knesset, amending the nation-state law to include Israeli minorities, limiting the power of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel over marriages, investing in early education, expanding health care, and re-entering negotiations with the Palestinian Authority for a peace agreement.
