What Snowdon revealed.

Where Is the Israeli Military Heading?  

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The army’s new multi-year plan shows that the IDF is reorganizing its priorities for the coming decade. Military priorities include theattainment of intelligence superiority, development of knockout fire delivery capability, active defense systems, cyber warfare, and border protection systems, while the ground forces are to be downgraded in importance and priority.
The recent announcement regarding future cuts in the defense budget, as well as the launching of the new multi-year plan for the IDF (“Te’uza”), prompt the question: where is the Israeli military heading?
The IDF formulated several principles of warfare in recent years: keeping the campaign as short as possible, allowing minimum damage to the home front (assuming that the home front will have a hard time facing a prolonged missile attack), and achieving a clear and definite image of victory.

I hope all of you who voted for Obama (especially Jews who naively thought he was a friend of Israel and voted for Obama in droves) are having second thoughts about this evil man. The Tanach says “I will bless those who bless you (Israel) and curse those who curse you” Get ready for G-d’s judgement on our country.
She has highlighted in yellow the most salient and vital passages of Mark Langfan’s article. She is correct in what she writes, but I don’t think even this relentless betrayal of Israel over Iran by Obama, since his rise to power in 2008, will yet alert Israelis to surround the Knesset and demand no more capitulation by Israeli leaders to the US, the EU, the UN and the Quartet; and to finally restore Jewish pride and self-respect.  (Read more…)
