Rockets Rejected!

Gee, I wonder if Hamas can get their money back for all the now impotent rockets they’re stockpiled.

Iron Dome intercepts first missiles from Gaza

Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system for the first time intercepted rockets fired from Gaza.

Ashkelon’s Iron Dome intercepted two rockets fired Thursday on the southern Israeli city. The unit had been set up three days earlier.

Last week’s first deployment of the $200 million system in Beersheba is being called an “operational trial” by the Israel Defense Forces. The deployment came earlier than expected due to a rise in attacks on southern Israel from Gaza.

One unit also is set up in Haifa; another soon will be put up in central Israel.

A Paradigm Shift?

So far so good, a perfect operational record for Iron Dome. However, like defending against terrorism in general, Iron Dome needs to intercept 100% of the rockets to be successful, the terrorist scumbags only need to get a lucky round through once.

/however, that said, it’s got to be pretty demoralizing for the Hamas cretins to know that every time they fire a rocket from Gaza, it’s likely to be rendered harmless and they’re likely to get pounded by the IDF, all pain for no gain

Oh Boy, Look What Israel Found

I’m shocked I tell you, shocked, the peace loving Iranians caught smuggling illegal weapons to the peaceful people of Gaza, how can this be?

Israel Seizes Egypt-Bound Ship With Arms On Board

Israel announced Tuesday that its naval forces have intercepted and seized a cargo ship carrying weapons from Turkey to Egypt, adding that it believed the arms shipment originated in Iran and was destined for the Palestinian militants in Gaza.

Israeli officials said the ship was seized some 200 nautical miles west off the Israeli coast. An initial search of the seized vessel uncovered three containers loaded with arms and officials indicating the ship would be searched thoroughly after it reaches Israel.

The seized cargo ship was identified as “Victoria,” which according to Israeli officials had initially set off from the Syrian port of Lattakia to Mercin in Turkey. They said the vessel was seized when it was heading towards the Egyptian port of Alexandria from Turkey.

The Israeli officials, however, stressed that their initial investigations indicated that neither Turkey nor Egypt were involved in the arms shipment. They believe the countries involved in the shipment were Iran and Syria.

“The only certain thing is the source of the weaponry was Iran, and there was a Syrian relay station as well. This is the main axis that provides the forces of terror in Lebanon and Gaza,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday.

Now, why on Earth would Hamas, the government of Gaza, need sophisticated anti-ship missiles and why would Iran be supplying them? Nevermind, that was a rhetorical question, Iran and Hamas both want to wipe Israel off the map and exterminate all the Jews.

/and all the while, the Western governments just stand by cowering, like so many eunuchs, picking their collectives noses while they watch Iran develop nuclear weapons before their very eyes and do nothing to stop it, what are they waiting for, the mushroom cloud over Tel Aviv?
