August Israel News Review

By David Dolan

Click for this month’s Israel news and analysis report. It naturally focuses on Ehud Olmert’s announcement that he will step down as Prime Minister after a new Kadima party leader is elected next month. I detail who might follow him as Israel’s next leader and what that might mean for the country and region. I also examine continuing high tension along Israel’s northern border with Lebanon, where Hizbullah is threatening to attack Israel yet again, and look at recent important developments with the Palestinians and Iran.

Russia’s resurgence as a possible military threat to Israel is also included.
