In “Israel’s Critical Security Requirements” a group of experts lay out what Israel’s really needs to protect itself in serious and practical terms. With Obama calling for Israel to withdraw to pre-1967 borders, this book clearly outlines what, in terms of territory, Israel needs to protect itself. Specifically, Israel must retain control of the Jordan Valley and an eventual Palestinian state must be unarmed. The essays in this volume lay out the specific security threats that Israel faces, especially regarding the threat of shoulder-mounted missiles. These chapters are well-researched and footnoted. The maps are clear and are a wonderful addition to the book.
