By Moshe "Bogie" Ya'alon

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.

[A] must-read for anyone interested in understanding Israel, Zionism, and the security establishment.

Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Amos Yadlin, Executive Director, Institute for National Security Studies, Tel Aviv University

[A] practical approach that will preserve both Israel's Jewish and democratic character and the faint but flickering hope for an eventual peace.

—Robert Satloff, Executive Director, Washington Institute for Near East Policy
