IDF general discusses how territorial depth matters — raising danger of concessions embraced by Israeli leaders left and right in Trump’s Peace Plan

Defensive thinking causes Israel to back away from conflicts it can win — until it backs itself into a conflict that it cannot win.

Lieberman’s Haredi ultimatum leads to new elections, highlighting faults in Israel’s democratic ‘balance of powers’

Offense is needed -- not defense oriented strategies like Iron Dome which ensure yet more attacks from the enemy.

Ironic victims of rock throwing attack, and an opportunity to celebrate independence with Israeli soldiers.

Where else would an entire nation stop a week before elections to honor a fallen hero?

Scathing look at disastrous effects of Israeli generals in politics proves that ability to command does not guarantee ability to lead

With no political expertise, ex-senior security officials call for ‘divorce’ from Arabs via Arab Peace Initiative's withdrawal to '48 Armistice Line and ‘right of return.’

Diminishing support for constraints on IDF action raises questions over 'acceptable' enemy civilian casualties.
