Israel Defense Forces (IDF)

Why has Israel allocated a large part of its national production to maintaining one of the most highly trained and best equipped military forces in the world?

Israel has a number of regional adversaries who have made it

clear that they intend to destroy Israel when they have the

opportunity and the ability. So Israel needs to devote an unusually

large fraction of its economy to military preparation and

readiness, in order to discourage others from pursuing their

intentions and desires in that regard, and, basically, just to

continue to exist.
