In a worst case scenario, 750,000 Israelis will have to be evacuated in the Jewish State's next war. In preparation, there is a nationwide 4-day drill this coming Sunday through Wednesday.
Israel has developed a policy vis-a-vis Syria that includes a worst-case outcome of the current conflict there. The stance Israel has adopted is changing its status in the Middle East.
Almost immediately after the US, Russia and Syria's "ceasefire" began on Monday night, a "spillover" mortar exploded in Israel's Golan Heights. The official interpretation is that it was accidental. Nonetheless, Israel responded "as if" it was deliberate. When Jerusalem's jets struck back, they were fired on by Syrian surface-to-air missiles. Was an Israeli plane shot down?
Russia is not only selling missiles and nuclear technology to Iran, but assault rifles too. Is Tehran's growing demand stretching the combined production of Russia and German manufacturers? If so, why? And what does it mean for Israel?
Without fanfare, Israeli officials are quietly concerned about the nation's ability to protect its citizens from an imminent war with Hezbollah, the "Party of Allah" in Lebanon. Very concerned.
