The IDF “Victory Doctrine”: The Need for an Updated Doctrine
In recent years, there has been a lively debate regarding the “Operational Doctrine for Victory” advanced by the current IDF Chief-of-Staff. The changes inherent in this doctrine have far-reaching implications for the IDF’s order of battle and approach to the use of force. The doctrine itself has many vulnerabilities that must be fixed.
The Ultimate Goal of the War – a New Regional and Global Architecture
The Gaza war should serve to upend the existing order and usher in a new regional order. This transformation will be reflected in a new regional framework that relies on the normalization process between Israel and the Arab world, spearheaded by Saudi Arabia. The great war against the axis of evil should not stop there. Israel and the free world must continue the relentless pursuit of the leaders of terrorist organizations and their operatives worldwide.

Prof. Gabi Siboni: There are numerous non-Israeli companies that provide similar services in France, the US and the UK. They have not been targeted like this. This is a broadside against Israel's cyber industry as a whole, a pillar of the country's economy.
