Central Israel Police Force

Reader comment on item: Explaining Israel's Timid Security Establishment

Submitted by Stein (United States), Jun 30, 2020 at 08:33

Note, the region of Central Israel, the heart of the Land of the Israel, is Judea Samaria, often socalled the "West Bank". By contrast, Tel Aviv and its surroundings are really West Israel.

I appreciated the compassionate viewpoint of this article. I often find the Israeli Defense Force to be counter-productively timid. But I appreciate the article assessing the viewpoint from the Defense Force. Not leftist and wishful. But rather, minimalist and cynical. Its officers have morphed into functioning as if a police force to keep calm, rather than as a defense force to achieve victory.

Perhaps this adaptation will prove useful?

When Israel is finally forced to liberate the entire Land of Israel, Israel will need a police force to keep the calm among the Muslim residents within Central Israel. The same tactics that the Defense Force officers use to police Central Israel now, are the same tactics that will be necessary to police this region in the future.

Thus, Israel can officially split off all of these jaded military officers to create a new Central Israel Police Force. Whose job is officially to maintain calm within Central Israel.

Meanwhile, Israel can appoint new military officers to head a restored Israeli Defense Force, whose job is actually to win.
