122 Israeli, US Officers Stationed in Saudi Faisal Air Base

November 1, 2016

Saudi Air Force

Leader of the Zionist party Meterz, Zahava Gal, said that 122 US and Zionist officers and pilots are stationed in Faisal bin Abdul Aziz air base in Saudi Tabuk, Israel in Arabic website reported.

The deployment of these officers comes under a US-Saudi agreement and indicates the extent of the development of military relations between the Saudi regime and the Zionist entity.

Leader of Meretz revealed that the agreement includes the installation of the Zionist “iron dome” air defense system, hoping to catch up with what the American Patriot system has failed do.

Zahava Gal explained that the area is being under the custody of the Americans and the Zionists, while Saudis are not allowed to enter, stating that the Zionist entity has no problems with the Saudi authorities, but the problem lies within the extremist ideas in the Saudi society.

Gal disclosed the agreement because she objects the dispatch of Zionist officers to the Saudi air base, saying:

“Given that Saudi Arabia decided through a secret agreement with Israel to hand over the islands of Sanafir and Tiran to Israeli army soon, we do not have the need to send our specialized officers to the King Faisal air Base in Tabuk. I declare that this reckless decision by Benjamin Netanyahu will drag us to the trap of Saudi terrorism sooner or later.”

The leader of Meretz party has published the names of the 122 officers operating in Tabuk air base.

Drone Enters Israeli Airspace From Syria; Israelis Fail to Intercept It

Sputnik

On Sunday, a Syrian [Hezbollah] drone penetrated Israeli airspace, evading two Patriot anti-air interceptors and possibly an F-16 air-to-air missile in the process.

A spokesman for the Israeli military claimed that the Israeli Air Force detected the unarmed aerial vehicle (UAV) before it violated airspace over Golan Heights. The Air Force released a statement on July 17 saying that the vehicle was being tracked, but that three attempts to intercept it had failed.

“The aircraft was detected prior to entering the nation’s territory and was fully tracked by the Israel Air Force,” according to the statement. “From the initial investigation, it was found that three intercept attempts took place as per procedure. No hit of the target was identified.”

The circumstances surrounding the attempted intercepts and the kind of UAV are both being investigated.

“Today’s event was a glimpse of things to come in the event of a major conflict,” said Tal Inbar of the Fisher Institute for Strategic Air and Space Studies. Inbar feels that Sunday’s incident shows that Israeli skies aren’t as secure as the military thinks they are.

 “In future conflicts, it will be a huge challenge for even the most advanced air defenses to discriminate from all the types of vehicles that will fill the skies,” he said.
“When the skies will be full of incoming rockets, missiles and air breathing threats, and when our own Iron Dome and David’s Sling interceptors will be saturating the skies, it’s hard to imagine the Israel Air Force allocating manned aircraft to shoot down incoming UAVs.”
 The task of securing Israel’s airspace falls to Wing 168, a ground-based system of the service’s integrated air-defense network that operates Patriot PAC-2 interceptors, and F-16 air defense fighters.

Prior to 2014, the Patriot missiles were junior partners to IAF troops in joint intercept missions against airborne attacks. In the summer of 2014, Wing 168 Patriot missiles intercepted three UAVs, destroying them in midair, one near the Syrian border and two from Gaza.

’Israel’ Plans to Expand ’Iron Dome’ to Warships

Local Editor

The “Israeli” apartheid regime on Wednesday said it planned to expand a key missile system to warships, in a bid to protect the country’s lucrative offshore gas fields amid growing aerial threats from regional adversaries.

Iron Dome Missile System

“Israel’s” military said it had successfully tested a naval version of its land-based Iron Dome system in recent weeks and would begin deploying it on its newest frigates to protect the country’s strategic assets, including its gas rigs.

The naval system is a combination of the land-based Iron Dome missile interceptor and radar systems on ships, the military said. “We call it the Iron Dome of the sea,” Col. Ariel Shir, head of operational systems in the “Israeli” navy, told reporters on a phone call.

The “Israel” entity’s land-based Iron Dome missile system intercepts short-range rockets and has become a bedrock of the country’s military capability since its introduction in 2011.

The ship-based Iron Dome system would augment a combination of land-based systems that the “Israeli” entity had jointly developed with the US, and that it hopes will provide a layered shield against a variety of short range missile threats to those capable of flying more than 600 miles.

“Israeli” war officials fear an operation by Hamas or Hizbullah could severely damage the gas rigs and significantly disrupt supply to “Israeli” settlements and businesses.

Thus, “Israeli” military officials had become concerned about Hizbullah’s ability to target facilities offshore using increasingly sophisticated anti-ship missiles. In 2006, an “Israeli” navy ship was struck by a sophisticated Hizbullah missile.

Natural gas from the country’s offshore fields provides about half the total volume of electricity to the “Israeli” entity, according to the country’s electricity authority.

Government-owned companies Rafael Advanced Systems Ltd. and “Israel” Aerospace Industries Ltd. have developed the new naval Iron Dome missile system, the military said.

US Congressman Brian Higgins, a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, introduced legislation for the US to aid the “Israeli” entity in protecting the gas reserves. The legislation would provide backing to use the entity’s new David’s Sling air system, an adjunct to Iron Dome, for protection of the gas fields.

The “Israel” apartheid regime’s war ministry last year signed a contract with the German shipbuilding group ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems GmBH for the construction of four ships intended to protect gas drilling platforms. The new Iron Dome system would likely be added to these and existing ships, the military said.

Iron Dome is only one part of an expanding “Israeli” air force effort to protect the country from rockets and missile attack. The country also plans to add two other new defensive systems, called David’s Sling and Arrow 3, to address evolving regional threats. The new systems will respectively protect against the medium-range missiles, largely held by Hizbullah, and long-range ballistic missiles developed by Iran.

“Israeli” war officials say the combination of Iron Dome, David’s Sling and Arrow-3 will enable the military to prioritize different rocket or missile attacks based on their speed, trajectory and distance. They augment existing military systems, including the Arrow-2 ballistic-missile system designed to shoot down some types of ballistic missile.

The tiered “Israeli” missile approach had been built in partnership with US war contractors, including Raytheon Co., Boeing Co. and Lockheed Martin Corp., the world’s biggest weapons maker by sales. The US government has provided more than $3 billion over the past 10 years to support the military system.

Details on further developing and funding “Israeli” missile system are part of current discussions between the “Israeli” apartheid regime and the White House on a new military aid package, according to “Israeli” war officials.

The White House had said it is willing to increase the current $3 billion a year in military aid, which is intended to help the “Israeli” entity maintain a military edge over other countries in the region.

’Israeli’ Iron Dome to Gulf States!

Local Editor

The Sky news reported on Wednesday that several Gulf nations are currently in negotiations to purchase the “Israeli”-made Iron Dome missile war system, Sky News reported.

The report said that member nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council want to defend themselves against a growing “Iranian arsenal of missiles.”
A senior Gulf government official was quoted as saying that “If Netanyahu were not making less of a mess of things and was more like [Egypt’s] Anwar Sadat, then we would be happy to buy the missiles straight from “Israel”.”

The official was apparently referring to is the Gulf states’ intention to buy the systems through American contractors who co-developed them, rather than directly from Tel Aviv.

The report also quotes Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Khalid bin Mohammed al -Khalifa, who said during a visit to London that “The “Israelis” have their small Iron Dome. We’ll have a much bigger one in the GCC.”

Gulf States Graph

The GCC includes Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman.

The Iron Dome was developed by the “Israeli” Rafael Advanced Systems, and the first system became operational in March 2011.

Israel offers Iron Dome technology to Saudi Arabia: Report

wahhabizionismA report says Israel has offered to provide its Iron Dome missile system technology to Saudi Arabia in order for the Saudi military to employ it on the border region with Yemen, amid the kingdom’s ongoing deadly military aggression against the impoverished neighbor.

According to a Saturday report by the Arabic-language newspaper Rai al-Youmon Saturday, the offer was made last week during meetings between Saudis and Israelis at the US embassy in the Jordanian capital of Amman.

A report, published on May 19 by the Arabic website of Israeli radio station Voice of Israel, said diplomats from certain Arab counties that do not have open diplomatic relations with the Tel Aviv regime had a secret meeting with Israeli officials in Jordan.

During the purported meeting, the Arab representatives expressed their relevant states’ interest in cooperating with Israel over “security” matters in the Middle East.

According to the UK-based Rai al-Youm, Saudi Arabia has purportedly rejected the Israeli offer.

A spokesman for the Jordanian government, meanwhile, said that he had no knowledge of the meetings at the US embassy in Amman.

Iron Dome is a short-range missile system designed to intercept rockets and artillery shells fired from a range of four to 70 kilometers.

The report comes as Saudi Arabia continues the bombardment of Yemeni towns and cities.

Riyadh started the military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement, which currently controls the capital, Sana’a, and other major provinces, and to restore power to Yemen’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.

The United Nations says that, since March 19, over 1,800 people have been killed and 7,330 injured due to the conflict in Yemen, which was exacerbated by the Saudi airstrikes.

Earlier in May, Iranian Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, a top military adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, warned that Saudi Arabia has launched a proxy war against Yemen on behalf of the United States and the Israeli regime.

Elaborating on the way the United States and its allies instigate violence in other countries, the Iranian official added that they do not involve themselves in the fights directly and entrust the task to “some countries or some terrorist groups.”

$286 million more for Israel?

piggybank

Why? Because  “Hamas and Hezbollah and their supporters in Iran and Syria are developing more sophisticated and longer range missiles aimed squarely against our best ally in the Middle East.”

JTA – Bipartisan legislation to continue funding for the joint U.S.-Israel air defense system known as David’s Sling was introduced in the House of Representatives. [H.R. 1915]

The bill introduced Tuesday by Reps. Derek Kilmer, D-Wash., and Jim Bridenstine, R-Okla., would authorize $286 million for procurement, research and development for the midrange missile defense system, which is designed to take down missiles from more than 180 miles away.

David’s Sling supplements the Iron Dome anti-missile system, which protects Israel against short-range rocket attacks.

“It’s important for us to bring this system online so we can help our ally in Israel and grow our economic partnership, so we can better share innovative ideas and create 21st century jobs in both countries,” Kilmer said in a statement.

Bridenstine noted the “immediate and growing missile threat” facing Israel. [Rockets from Gaza have killed approximately 29 people total in all the years they have been used by various resistance groups; during the same period Israeli forces have killed close to 6,000 men, women, and children in Gaza.]

[See stats here and here.]

“Hamas and Hezbollah and their supporters in Iran and Syria are developing more sophisticated and longer range missiles aimed squarely against our best ally in the Middle East,” he said, adding that the United States and Israel developing David’s Sling together “demonstrates the unshakable American commitment to Israel’s security.” [Despite the fact that Israel tried to sink a U.S. Navy ship, quibbled over compensation to Americans, and call the survivors “anti-Semitic when they call for an investigation. Representative Jim Bridenstine announces his “commitment to Israel.” We wonder if he has a similar commitment to American veterans.]

The bill is now before the House Appropriations Committee.

US-Iran talks extended, AIPAC rushes to step in

ayatollahkhamenei[1]Netanyahu and his American poodles in both Houses are celebrating the extension of nuclear talks between the US and Iran in Vienna. On November 24, the E3+3 announced that they intend to continue their dialogue to resolve US-Israel “concerns” regarding Iran’s nuclear program.

With anti-Muslim pro-Israel law-makers, both Republican and Democrats controlling both Congress and Senate and Liz Sherwood-Randall (Jewish) WMDs Czar while the so-called “soft on Iran”, Pentagon’s top gun ChuckHagel dumped – Next year will be the best time to make Iraq out of Iran for Israel.

As I wrote last week that both the US and Israel are not interested in resolving Iran’s nuclear issue. They’re preparing the necessary anti-Iran groundwork for a violent military regime change in Iran, as all their efforts to achieve that goal through propaganda and the “crippling sanctions” have failed to change Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei’s views about the Zionist regime.

It’s now essential that Congress now take up new bipartisan sanctions legislations to let Tehran know that it will face much more severe pressure if it doesn’t clearly abandoned its nuclear weapon program,”AIPAC said in a statement on Monday after P5+1 and Iran agreed to extend the final deal deadline to June 30, 2015.

Zionist prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu who called US-Iran nuclear talks as “blunder”, approved the extension “better than a nuclear deal between the US and Iran”. John Kerry tried to take the credit for delaying a final deal agreeable to Tehran. Both Iranian president Rouhani and his foreign minister Dr. Zarif said that talks did not need extension if American administration had been sincere in understanding Iran’s concerns. Both said that Tehran will never roll-back its civilian nuclear program.

Some political analysts are of the opinion that Israel, Russia and China will be the main beneficiaries in the long-term “no deal” scenario while European Union will be the main loser.

On November 26, Chuck Freilich, former Israeli national security adviser wrote at The BUZZ that since the US-Iran talk has failed to curb Israel’s “existential threat” from Iran with a “nuclear capability” – Obama administration should put the “military option” against Iran back on table.

Rob Eshman’s article Obama’s Jewish War posted at Jewish Journal on July 11, 2012, opens many doors to what’s being cooked at the White House. “Barack Obama rescued Egypt from fundamentalist chaos and to secure Israel,”Liz Sherwood-Randall told a large Jewish gathering sponsored by Foreign Policy Roundtable in July this year.

I would pause here and say there are some who assert there is a different sort of relationship between the president and the prime minister, that it is not a solid relationship. I would assure you that the president has built a very important relationship with Prime Minister Netanyahu. What this administration has done to advance Israel’s security is, literally, unprecedented,” she said.

She detailed military-to-military cooperation, $205 million spent to assist Israel in developing its Iron Dome missile defense system, Obama’s assistance to stranded and threatened Israeli diplomats in Egypt, and his speech before the United Nations General Assembly arguing against a bid for Palestinian statehood.

On Iran, Sherwood-Randall maintained that the administration has imposed the most far-reaching sanctions that Iran has ever faced, and that because of its intensive diplomacy, 18 countries – including Turkey, Japan, South Korea and India – have decreased purchases of Iranian oil, halving Iran’s crude oil exports.

Sherwood-Randall whose father Richard Sherwood was leader of the American Jewish Committee (AJC) for years, pointed out that the president Obama had never ruled out a military option on Iran.

I sincerely hope all Iranian leaders committed to the survival of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, stop chasing the “ghost” and learn from North Korean experience. Iran should dump NPT in garbage-can like Israel, India and Pakistan did longtime ago. It must rush to build a few nukes. That will put a duct-tape on Obama-Netanyahu mouth. In contrast to North Korea and Pakistan – Iran is loaded with oil and gas reserves and its economy has already withstood the western sanctions since 1980s. Israel-born British writer, author and musician, Gilad Atzmon, agrees with me on this.
