In Praise of @Potus #AmosHarel

“…U.S. President Barack Obama took the threat[s] [of a nuclear attack on Israel by Iran, and/or more probably, an Israeli ‘unilateral military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities’] seriously enough to toughen sanctions against Iran in response.”

Foreign Affairs, “Israel’s Evolving Military: Israel Defense Forces [IDF] Adapt to New Threats” by Amos Harel at 43 et seq., July/August 2016.

He can be a meany: “IDF expects to…release tens of thousands of older, unfit and poorly trained soldiers from its reserves.” Harel lays it on thick at 48 and says Gadi Eisenkot, IDF’s Chief of Staff, will refocus on countering guerilla assailants, such as lone wolves “ramming cars into Israeli pedestrians and soldiers or stabbing them in the streets.” [at 49].

Israel to purchase 50 F-35 joint strike fighters from the United States. [at 48]

If we all read the bad news first, things won’t feel so bad when we finally realize, “Everything’s going to be alright.”
