Eight Nations Learn About Israeli Successes in Anti-Rocket Defense


iron-domeLast week, Israel hosted a three-day, closed-door conference attended by eight top NATO air defense commanders and senior staff, said Israel Air Force Brig. Gen. Shachar Shohat, commander of Israel’s air defense forces.

Countries represented included Canada, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, the UK and the U.S.

They were briefed on Israel’s air defense activities in last summer’s Gaza war, when Iron Dome anti-rocket batteries had an interception rate of nearly 90%.

“Our achievements in Operation Protective Edge sparked keen interest around the world, and people wanted to come here to hear our experiences and exchange data at the professional level,” Shohat said.

    in yiddishkeit, if a person wants something (be it a livlihood, shidduch or child etc…) a person needs to do more then just daven & say tehillim, the person needs to also YEARN for it.-sadly- in today’s society we are living in, we are not YEARNING for the Bais Hamikdosh, we have everything from planes to cars & computers etc… even the gift of Shabbos for Gashmius to sleep & relax etc… HASHEM SAYS to klal yisroel, come back to me when your ready & ask me for something from your HEART & i will give you whatever you want (i’m sure if your child came to you for something you would get it, why wouldn’t you? the love between a parent & child is unlimited…. & that’s the way Hashem loves EACH & EVERY ONE OF US)

    All of us have heard, read & seen tons of true stories of people who had their first child at 42 or had a sick child in critical condition, & then the doctor says i’m very sorry but your daughter has only 3 hours to live & then he comes back 2 hours later & says its really a miracle but your child is beginning to recover etc…. Why is it that they finally had a child & the child recovered? There could be tons of answers, but the most common answer Is a Pasuk we say 3 times a day in Davening. Hashem is close to all who call to him, to all who call out truthfully. (Tehillim 145)Because they cried out from their heart, they really meant what they were saying when they davened to H-shem to have a baby or for his daughter to recover etc…. there’s a reason we call Hashem, Avinu She’bashamayim (our father in heaven) Hashem loves us from a father to a son & is waiting to put his Shchina (presence) & his bais hamikdosh back in this world. If we really cried out for the Bais Hamikdosh from our heart with truth & show that we are missing it, then we wouldn’t still be in Golus today.

  3. Maybe with this weapon Israel can gain some support from its two-sided allies to help defend ber internationally and in their own countries.
