(NEWS) IDF Historian: The Left Won't Wake Up Until It's Too Late

"Earlier this week, Military Intelligence head Amos Yadlin presented what many called a very pessimistic forecast before the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. According to Yadlin, the regional is moving inexorably towards war, and that the coming war would be the most difficult Israel ever faced.

But perhaps even more serious was the forecast by Israel's IDF military history expert Dr. Uri Milstein, a respected researcher and iconoclastic analyst . 'I have begun to have my doubts as to whether the IDF is up to the task of defending this country,' Milstein told Arutz 7. 'Our enemies have grown stronger, while in some circles, our motivation has fallen. Part of our society is frightened. Even if more people die on their side, they are more willing to sacrifice than we are.'

In his presentation before the committee, Yadlin sketched out the formidable facing Israel in the coming years and explained which group in Israel is the cause of his remarks. Yadlin said that in the coming war, Israel's enemies would attack on at least two fronts, 'if not more. We cannot draw any conclusions about future battles from the Second Lebanon War or from Cast Lead, but we can say a future war will be more massive and widespread, with many more casualties.'"
