Professor Aumann Suggests Automatic Counter-Missile for Every Hamas Rocket


robert-aumannNobel laureate Professor Yisrael Aumann has an idea that could turn the tables on Hamas’s rocket terror against Israel.

Arutz Sheva reports that in a recent lecture, he described his vision for a fully automatic system that would fire a rocket back at Gaza immediately, whenever Gaza terrorists fired a missile at Israel. Presumably, these missiles would be randomly or automatically aimed in a way that would inflict civilian casualties on the Arab side, just as Hamas seeks to cause civilian casualties on the Israeli side.

Asked about the idea in an interview by NRG, Aumann said: “I’m working on it. The goal is truly that the system will be without any human involvement, no human control. This is very important, because if there is control, they will tell us that we are criminals and murderers and cruel.”

However, he explained, if there is no control of the system on the Israeli side, the responsibility for civilian deaths caused on the Arab side falls on the people who fired the missiles that set off the Israeli system. Arutz Sheva reported that Prof. Aumann compared this to a situation in which the Arabs “take their women and children and force them to walk through a dangerous minefield.”

Prof. Aumann, a mathematician, is a professor at the Center for the Study of Rationality in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel. He received the Nobel prize for economics in 2005 for his work on conflict and cooperation through game-theory analysis.

  1. also without any u.s. backing, and the war head size would have to match. And then all the anti-semites will love us. Good going.

  2. You can always count on a brilliant Nobel prize winning academic to be so naive. To the brainwashed left it doesn’t make one iota of a difference whether Israel chooses to return fire or if retaliation is automatically set in place, Israel will always be at fault.

    If Israel were to place mines along its borders and Hamas would deliberately send their children across, Europe would still say Israel is harming innocent children.

    If a Hamas warrior were to injure himself while attempting to kill an Israeli child, Europe would still consider him a casualty of Israeli aggression.

    If Hamas were to gather 1000 of their own children and murder them in cold blood, they will claim that they did it out of desperation because of Israeli oppression.

    And Europe would nod its head in agreement.

  3. I think it would be best if the original rocker could boomerang back into Gaza. So their own missiles would fall back on them

  4. A bit off. The Israelis have taken the position that the people of Gaza are held hostage by Hamas, as such the people of Gaza have no responsibility. This is despite the electorate voting for Hamas, but that has been the Israeli position. Listen to Mark Regev and Peter Lerner, they have been telling this to the international media. If so, why fire an indiscriminate missle at Gaza, which, according to the current Israeli theme, is full of innocent civillians?
