’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.”

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.

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.

Israel was created to solve Europe’s ‘Jewish Problem’

Israeli professor Shlomo Sand is the author of several controversial books on Israel and Judaism. The list includes The Invention of the Jewish People, and The Invention of the Land of Israel. His latest book to propagate more myths about Jews, Israel and Holocaust is How I Ceased To Be A Jew.

What Shlomo Sand and other Zionist and the so-called “anti-Zionist” writers refuse to admit that Zionist Jews used Europe’s centuries-old Jewish Problem to establish a Jewish homeland in Muslim-majority historic Palestine and the western powers including the US, Britain and USSR helped them to achieve their dream.

Initially, a great majority of British Jews were against the creation a ‘Jewish homeland’ on an Arab land. However, British hardcore Christian Zionist leaders, such as, Lord Balfour, Lord Shaftesburry and Lolyd George were driven by their ‘messianic fantasy’ that once a great majority of world Jewry assemble in the Holy Land (Palestine), it will usher the second-coming of Christ. Over 65 million evangelic Christian still believe that when Christ appears he will convert Jews to Christianity in the Holy Land and the ones who refuse to convert would be put to death.

The distorted interpretation of the Jewish Bible (OT) has been and still remains central to Western support for the Zionist entity. This support has generated over $3 trillion American aid to Israel since 1970s excluding $3 billion annual military aid and over 38 American vetoes at the UNSC to protect the Zionistentity being dragged to some international body on charges of war crimes.

On September 16, 2014, Janet C. Phelan, an investigative journalist and author, published an informative post, entitled, The United States and Israel: A Dance of Deception in which she shed some light over the European’s hatred towards Jews, Zionism, Israel, Israel’s Dumb Iron Dome and the new Jewish religion, the Holocaust.

To understand the dysfunctional US-Israel relationship which has been plagued with self-deception, betrayal and false intent from its inception. To begin with, one must understand that the state of Israel was in large part created by those who despised Jews,” Phelan said.

In fact, Roosevelt’s own personal racial ideas might be considered to be somewhat aligned with Hitler’s. His refusal to raise immigration quotas for Jews helped to ensure that Jews would be trapped in Eastern Europe. As reported by Rafael Medoff, director of the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies in an article for the Los Angeles Times:  “In 1923, as a member of the Harvard board of directors, Roosevelt decided there were too many Jewish students at the college and helped institute a quota to limit the number admitted. In 1938, he privately suggested that Jews in Poland were dominating the economy and were therefore to blame for provoking anti-Semitism there. In 1941, he remarked at a Cabinet meeting that there were too many Jews among federal employees in Oregon. In 1943, he told government officials in Allied-liberated North Africa that the number of local Jews in various professions “should be definitely limited” so as to “eliminate the specific and understandable complaints which the Germans bore towards the Jews in Germany,” Phelan said.

Interestingly, Benjamin H. Friedman (died 1984), a Jewish defector, had called  FDR a Jewish Pawn along with presidents Wilson, Truman, Eisenhower, JFK, Lyndon Johnson and Nixon.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt was a captive of the Talmudists from the time he went to Albany as governor of the state of New York. President Roosevelt was long beholden to the Talmudists,” wrote Friedman.

Phelan claims that the American Jewish Congress (AJC) also collaborated with Nazis.

Phelan claims that the Zionist entity benefited from the 9/11 terrorist attacks the most. “The fact that the attacks of 911 were used as a rationale to go to war, first against Afghanistan and Iraq, then in a domino effect to attack Libya and threaten war against Syria and Iran, can only be seen as an effort to destabilize the entire region, an effort which may have fatal blowback for Israel,” She said.

OPERATION SECURITY BOTTOM

 

 

Netanyahu bottom front is bare and widely open.

FRIDAY, JULY 25, 2014 AT 5:02PM GILAD ATZMON

Osama Gil-laden  in Jerusalem

Avi Dichter, former head of the Israel Security Agency and home front defense minister, declared earlier this week that “there is no Iron Dome against the terror tunnels.” The message is devastatingly clear; the Jewish people are now attacked from below – the bottom front is bare and widely open.

This development is regarded in Israel as a serious intelligence blunder. It needs to be addressed immediately. More than a few Israeli politicians and commentators call for a probe of the failure of Israel intelligence once Operation Protective Edge comes to its conclusion.

In the last decade Israel has surrounded itself with walls of security.  The Jewish sky is also covered by a dome of iron. But the promised soil that waited for two millennia to be redeemed by its true and only owners, is threatened to be plundered, once again, by a new wave of Gazan  insurgents who dig their way into our heartland land from in beneath.

But the Palestinians were naïve if they, even for one second, believed that the Jewish Genius was going to be intimidated by this new form of Islamo-Tunnelism. The Israeli defense ministry was quick to gather some ideas. Earlier this week it presented the cabinet with a few operative solutions.

Sarah Toddler, the secretary of the Kindergarten Teachers Union (KTU)  and the author of the worldwide progressive best seller Poopoo-Kaka-Weewee-Pipi  was amongst the first experts to be invited to the meeting. The experienced early-age educator suggested to wrap Israel’s bottom with a nappie (diaper). “Such a solution’, she said,  “would provide us with security but also a sense of relative comfort.”  Minister Naftali Bennett, famous for his hard-core nationalist inclinations was very supportive, he argued that such an idea, wrapping the Jewish State with a diaper may even “fuel Zionism with a sense of new begging.”

But truth must be said, with all due respect to Mrs Toddler, her suggestion didn’t stand a much of a chance.  Far more creative was Moishe Feiga’le, currently, Israel’s LGBT minister and a member of the Israeli Lick Party. “Unlike our reactionary, backward  neighbours”, said Feiga’le, “we the Jews are tolerant and open.  Israel must seek the support of its extensive patriotic Gay community, after all, Tel Aviv is the world’s gay capital and this time, it is our bottom that is aching.” The cabinet followed Feiga’le advice and a meeting was set the following morning at shelter near Picca-Dildo, Tel Aviv’s most famous  Sex Shop.

Far from being surprising, the Israeli Gay leaders saved Israel once again. Butt-Plug was their answer. “The Jewish homeland needs to seal its bottom and there is only one cheap method to do so” said Yossef Pillowbiter . It goes without saying that the idea was opposed by the usual suspects: ministers Avigdor Liberman and Eli Yishai known for their conservative and backward worldview. But Feiga’le and Pillowbitter anticipated  opposition and were well prepared. They provided the cabinet members with a verity of plugs provided that they are returned within 24 hours and clean. Surprise? Not really, we learn this evening from Government spokesman Mark Regev that both Lieberman and Yishai are now considering the new idea positively and seriously and even asked to extend the plug trial period by another 48 hours.
