Israel was advised to redesign its defenses to deal with non-conventional threats. The Committee for Israeli Security Doctrine, formed two years ago by Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz, submitted its recommendations this week. According to the panel, Israel faces a diminished threat of conflict with conventional armies, but this has been offset by the risks of international terrorism and weapons of mass destruction sought by countries like Iran. Mofaz endorsed the committee’s findings and said he would initiate an appropriate overhaul of the Israeli military and civilian security services.
