Quote of the day

"Israel’s security doctrine was built around layers—each layer being more difficult to penetrate—and it was always best to engage a threat at the outermost layer. This was one of the pillars behind Israel’s reliance on dynamic proactive deterrence to strike out preemptively rather than absorb a preventable blow."

-- The Ghost Warriors: Inside Israel's Undercover War Against Suicide Terrorism, Samuel M. Katz
