NEW BOOK PROPOSES ISRAEL WITHDRAW UNILATERALLY FROM THE WEST BANK

“Israeli National Security: A New Strategy for an Era of Change” by former Deputy National Security Adviser Charles Freilich proposes first public national security policy.

srael should unilaterally withdraw from the West Bank in order to lay the groundwork for a two-state solution with the Palestinians and prevent terrorist attacks like Barkan from occurring again, says former deputy national security adviser Charles Freilich in his book Israeli National Security: A New Strategy for an Era of Change.

After 70 years and countless bloody wars as well as enemies with vast rocket and missile arsenals, Israel still does not have a formal national security strategy, because “prime ministers have intentionally avoided from doing it.” And while there have been efforts to adopt such a strategy, notably the 2006 Meridor Report, it remains classified.
