Israel Defence Force: We Must Keep the Next War Short!

A fair warning:

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Chief of Staff Benny Gantz recently stated that in a future war Israel will have to make sure that it secures a “swift” and decisive victory, because “we know that our ability to decide the battle depends on the Home Front’s resilience.”

It is well known that Israel’s enemies have been stockpiling missiles for the sole purpose of targeting Israeli cities with the most condensed population. Military intelligence officials predict that Tel Aviv would be a front in the next war. 

With the U.S.’s financial assistance, Israel has developed the most advanced missile defense systems in the world. Nonetheless, even the most advanced defense system, such as the Iron Dome, will not eradicate the threat of incoming missiles.

Israelis are well aware of the gravity of the situation, and we often contemplate where we will find shelter in case of war. Many Israelis do not have adequate bomb shelters, and many people living in major Israeli cities are vulnerable to missile attack.

Therefore, with God’s help, it will be the IDF’s responsibility to ensure a swift and decisive victory in order to keep targeted and vulnerable civilian populations safe.

  1. The IDF is well trained and ready in most cases, but they certainly cannot stand a long protracted war! However, I am not sure Israel’s enemies know the depth and Israel’s contingencies if and when an all-out war comes? They (Israel) know well their enemies!

    1. The IDF knows its story. And backed up by support agencies like Mossad, watch out! They have proven themselves on the battlefield with heroic acts of defence in the past. I was amazed to see the determination in the eyes of the men and women in uniform when I visited there last. It really is a unique Defence Force.

      Gosh just think of the Desert Eagle for a minute Fr. What a monster… A hand canon 😉
