    Yes the IDF needs to reorganise into four different armies: (i) the guerillia army fighting Hizb-Shaytan by the same means but using highprecision laser guided guns, to act surgically. Equipment: highspeed 4x4 cars, mineproof undistinguishable from normal cars. Civilian clothing. This army has its entry condition to move four weeks with a 20 kg rucksack (an no additional rations) through Sinai. (ii) the regular army against the armies of Syria etc. There are two stratgies for such an army: (1) bulldoze the enemy by shelling (WWI shows that this did not work-but cheaper). (2) high speed partially airbourne army that knocks the enemy of its feet. Able to do city combat by being able to move through the houses rather then along the streets (more expensive). Thus new equipement needs to be developed that can break through walls and even the toughest concrete wall. (iii) a border - interior force (iv) the secret services All need to have different commanders, with a single chief of staf
