Israel vs. Iran

The Shadow War

Few armed forces or espionage services in the world attract as much interest and admiration as the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and the Mossad intelligence agency. Since the Second Lebanon War in 2006, Israel has been preparing for possibly the most complex and dramatic challenge it has faced in sixty years - a nuclear-armed Iran. Israel vs. Iran outlines the choices Israel must face: launch a military strike, which could lead to an all-out regional war, or tacitly accept a nuclear Iran, which would lead to a new balance of power in the Middle East. In 2011, Israel appears closer than ever to making a decision. Drawing on in-depth research and invaluable access to the Israeli defense establishment, Yaakov Katz and Yoaz Hendel describe behind-the-scenes Israeli strategic military deliberations and decisions. They outline the IDF's postwar rehabilitation and the way its fighting units have returned to basic conventional military training. They also review how the Iranian threat is perceived and the variety of strategic options to confront it.


Yaakov Katz is the military correspondent and senior defense analyst for the Jerusalem Post and the Israel correspondent for Jane's Defence Weekly. A popular lecturer on military affairs and former correspondent for USA Today, Katz is a frequent contributor to numerous U.S. publications and a regular commentator on Israel Television, Sky News, Al Jazeera, and other networks. He lives in Jerusalem. Dr. Yoaz Hendel is a military historian and lecturer at Bar Ilan University and a research fellow at the Begin-Sadat (BESA) Center for Strategic Studies. A columnist on strategic and military affairs for Yediot Ahronot, Israel's largest news daily, he is also the military commentator for the Makor Rishon newspaper and a talk show host for Israel's Army Radio. He lives in Jerusalem.

"Without doubt, "Israel vs. Iran: The Shadow War" represents a potentially indispensable contribution to a thoroughly critical literature. For policymakers in Jerusalem and Washington, there can be no better advice than to pore over its lucid pages with great care, prudence, and even a sense of 'destiny.'"
