Description: Few Israelis are as deserving of the title “Mr. Security” as Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon. His history of military and political leadership speaks for itself. A unique voice on the Israeli political scene, Ya’alon holds hawkish right-wing views on security, but objects to a binational state. He supports individual rights and battles corruption within the government.
This unique worldview led to the conclusion of his term as defense minister in 2016 in the Netanyahu government and also serves as his compass in his journey back to leadership of the state. Ya’alon speaks openly on the main issues on the State of Israel’s agenda today, including his criticisms of the submarine affair, the cabinet’s behavior in Operation Protective Edge, and the ethical crisis of the Elor Azaria incident.
This fascinating and inspiring insider view is a must-read for anyone interested in the landscape of the Middle East.
