After the Israeli government released its first national intelligence estimate report, experts have been poised to believe we may well be on the verge of a proverbial cliff. This leads to a chasm of crises that threaten to shake up the natural order of things.
From geopolitical to technological, the leap is expected to be massive. Everything from health to energy will be impacted, leaving the weaker ones dead in the water while the strong battle for a spot at the top.
Israel’s assessment hints at major changes right around the corner
The report was originally published by the country’s Intelligence Ministry.
This is going in line with similar reports surfacing from both the US and several other western countries, with one copy of it being obtained by the Jerusalem Post.

The report in question was written by a team of Israel’s top eight experts in the fields of geopolitics, energy, health, and more. It comes with a strict focus on addressing areas related to the nation’s power and resilience, going far beyond just military prowess.
This included the advancement of Israel’s key alliances, as well as the establishment of a technological bridge between Israel and other developing countries, inadvertently filling the gaps in their national resilience.
Of the topics discussed by the experts, the three crucial aspects of the report were Israel’s health system, and water and energy supply. All of them seem like minor issues at face value, but can become detrimental in the long run, if they’re not addressed.
The Israeli Intelligence Ministry unveiled its national intelligence estimate report:
As the world polarizes between two gigantic power centers (1-China & Russia & allies 2-NATO & allies), all countries INCLUDING ISRAEL are forced to choose & Cold War 2.0 will accelerate

Israel is at a turning point
Another thing to note is the report clearly outlines Israel’s growth from an energy weak country to its current status as an energy independent one, thanks to the discovery of natural gas in their maritime coastal area.
The closed conference following the report hosted a number of prominent figures from Israeli intelligence agencies, including the former IDF chief Amos Yadlin. He spoke up on the nation’s current relationship with Iran, claiming that Israel now has the upper hand.
Intelligence Minister Elazar Stern chimed in, adding the report is meant to shape the horizon, rather than just survey it. He said the long-term intelligence provided in the report will help develop working strategies for the future.
According to #Israel’s first ever national intelligence estimate.
World is on the verge of a cliff.
A series of crises striking simultaneously will reorder:

It’s also been found that the report didn’t just gloss over other issues like global health, trust in governmental institutions, and the current state of the global supply chain. They will be addressed in due time.
However, the shift from battling terrorism to dealing with one crisis after another may spell disaster for Israel; the country was at its peak when the world looked to it for anti-terrorism strategies.
Israel will have a hard time maintaining a positive relationship with all three of the world’s major powers, those being the US, Russia, and China. The developments from the past two years have been a testament to it.
