Seraphic Secret has just returned from a four-day trip to Israel, where we attended our niece Ariella’s wedding. We then spent a lovely and peaceful Shabbat with beloved cousins in Mitzpe Netofa, a yishuv in the upper Galilee.
We are beyond jet-lagged. In fact, semi-comatose.
But before collapsing in a cranky heap, we’d like to post a few thoughts on Gaza, Operation Pillar of Defense, and the implications for the future of warfare between Western democracies and Islamist terrorists and terrorist states.
To determine where Israeli military doctrine is heading in terms of asymmetrical warfare, you can go to the glossy think-tanks and listen to a bunch of smart but usually clueless eggheads. Or you can sit down with a few scary-smart, articulate young men who are about to enter elite cyber-units within the Israeli military.
Seraphic Secret chose the latter.
