Enter the Iron Beam Laser defense in Israel. Yalla

All those annoying, not to mention deadly, qassams and other short range rockets (like shoulder held rocket launchers) that Hamas (and Hezbollah) are so fond of firing but that are in the air for too short a time to be taken out by the Iron Dome missile defense system are about to meet their airborne eradication. The Iron Beam has been developed to stop just those pesky kabooms. We’ve got excellent long-range missile defenses with three different systems in place. The Iron Dome was developed to take out the mid-range missiles and works at just above 80% in taking them out. Now, there is an answer to the sprinters of the missile world. Unlike the previous short-range rocket defense system that was in development and then abandoned, the Iron Beam can function in cloudy and rainy weather and it can take out multiple targets at once. That is important because the terrorists often fire not just one but a whole barrage of short-range rockets simultaneously and a single laser beam unit can detect and target multiple simultaneous incoming. This fifth layer of missile defense will premiere in February at an air show in Singapore and is expected to be on the ground and in use not long after.

    And, I think that I read that the technology was developed and made in Israel. No need to get it from a sometime ally.

    I’ve said this kind of thing before; whether its Iron Dome, Lazer Beams or a Wizzard who casts spells on rockets, Israel is following the wrong stratigy when it comes to these rockets. Israel should not defend against rockets. They should eliminate the rocket threat.

    • Lynne says :

      Tiger Mike, good point. I think that the IDF struck several terrorists in Gaza in the past day or two. Gaza seems to be going out of control of even Hamas with new terrorist groups emerging. I am reading that Egypt is uneasy about Gaza.

        Lynne,
        I’ll use spell check when I next post.

        How is your health?

        • Lynne says :

          Tiger Mike, thank you for asking; I am doing very well now. I’m working on getting more exercise and on improving my diet to include the healthiest foods on a regular basis.
          Spell check…I never see my mistakes until after I’ve posted them!

    An interesting article that you should read to see that the UN and the UNESCO in particular are controlled by the Arab countries when it pertains to Israel.

    A while ago, after several murders by Muslims living in Israel of Israeli Jews, I told the readers of Yael’s blog that these murderers would not only be spared unfairly what they deserve, death, they would get free degrees, videos and more while in jail after committing atrocious murders of Israeli Jews. Well, it is time for an “I told you so!” statement.
