Beirut – The Institute for Palestine Studies (IPS) recently released a new book “Israeli Vision for conflicts in the Middle East and their repercussions on Israel’s security: studies by Israeli generals and researchers”.

Edited by Ahmed Khalifa and adapted by Randa Haidar, the book shows that since the beginning of the so-called “Arab Spring”, massive turmoil has ignited and dominated the region. Countries were devastated, peoples were displaced, regimes were toppled and maps have been redrawn.

This turmoil and their deadly impacts still disturb the intellectual and political circles in the world.

Israeli centers of studies and research and the Israeli media have been highly concerned in observing the ongoing developments in the Arab world and the Middle East, analyzing them, and anticipating their repercussions on Israel.

It also focused on what the Zionist entity should do to face the threats driven by those developments. Many renowned Israeli researchers, politicians and military figures partook in tracking these developments.

The Institute for Palestine Studies closely monitored the publications of Israeli researches, studies and media outlets about this topic. The team assigned to tackle this mission collected hundreds of studies and thousands of articles that reflect and define the general aspects of Israeli thinking.

It is known that the political and security commands in Israel have often benefited from the analyses and recommendations of the studies issued by the specialized academic and strategic centers to understand their reactions and policies.
