"Israel's current crisis provides an opportunity to overhaul its national strategy, addressing challenges and maximizing opportunities. This effort should be guided by several key pillars, including reinforcing the IDF considering the failure of the existing security concept, prioritizing the security component in future diplomatic arrangements with the Palestinians, strengthening ties with the United States, enhancing regional integration, and adopting a responsible economic policy to foster rebuilding and prevent stagnation"

"The State of Israel faces a dilemma:
i. To end the fighting in Gaza without significant military action in the north, but promote a national rehabilitation plan with increased military deployment on the border in order to reduce the number of young families that move out and encourage others to move in from other parts of country.
ii. To initiate a military move designed to restore the sense of security in the northern communities so that young families return to live near the border."

“China and Iran have conflicting interests in the Middle East. While Iran is interested in increased instability, which helps it expand its regional influence, China is acting to increase stability in order to lower energy prices and maximize its regional investments. Therefore, Israel and China have overlapping interests vis-à-vis reducing Iranian aggression in the Middle East.”

“From the regional perspective, it is apparent that the Iran-Saudi reconciliation has stopped the trend of diplomatically boycotting Hezbollah, and the organization is improving its political standing, especially with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf. In parallel, Iran is pressing Hezbollah to cooperate with the Palestinian factions to threaten Israel and reap benefits.”

“The success of the visit and the ability to leverage it towards a fruitful bilateral dialogue, will determine whether the two nations will diverge from the current trajectory of clash and confrontation, or whether the new route will lead towards a new Cold War, which will be characterized by further tensions and will shape the global power structures, including an armament race in USA/China areas of influence.”

“Israel is not be willing to enter a negotiation process with the Palestinians under a Chinese umbrella unless the USA will have a part in the process and will press Israel to join. It is highly unlikely that the USA will be willing to cooperate with China on this issue in the near future, or that the USA will be willing to participate in an international summit where it is not leading and sharing credit with China.”

“China’s aggressive behavior, doubled by the growing number of maritime skirmishes between China and its South China Sea neighbors, and the growing tensions between China and the USA on the Straits of the Taiwan, has increased the security needs of ASEAN’s members to strengthen stability and to project a unified maritime front.”
