The Israeli security doctrine is based on the assumption that peace is not at hand. That is, even if some of the Jewish State’s neighbors sign treaties, their regimes could fall into hostile hands once again. In any event, there will remain other die-hard elements bent on disputing Israel’s existence and well-being. The challenge for Israeli strategists is to avoid a constant wartime mentality, which will block the country’s social and economic progress, and find the right balance in fighting its enemies to hold them at bay while delaying major clashes.
