An Israeli Iron Dome defense system missile intercepts a rocket fired from Gaza .

Question: At an estimated $70,000 per Iron Dome launch, if the Iron Dome system determines that a Hamas rocket launched from Gaza is about to hit PA civilians in Palestinian Authority controlled Ramallah, does Israel have a moral obligation to shoot the rocket down?

What do you think?

  1. Oooops! Missed that one! But seriously, Israel is defending her territories, and the PA should have spent time and resources to look after themselves. They reared this monster and it is hard to put it down but it is up to them to be responsible for their actions.

  2. Why was this question even asked. Look at the actions of Israel compared to Hamas. Israel send flyers into civilian areas to warn them of incoming attacks. Israel treats the wounded from both sides at their hospitals, Israel allows food and supplies to cross into Gaza freely, etc.. Hamas gods on civilan population fully knowing that it will be a strike zone, they encourage children to strap bombs on their chest to kill as many Israelis as possible, they use civilians as human shields, etc… Now tell me why this question was asked !!!!

  3. Good question. But I think it is a bit mute, since the Iron Dome is deployed in areas where Hamas (מח שמם) is most likely to shoot the birds. Israel would probably protect them anyway because they value human life not like the animals that want to destroy us.

  4. I like Boudville and Zelikson’s answers. Unfortunatley for me I listened to both NPR and CBS radio and discovered that Israel is the aggressor, killing numerous innocent civilians. Not a word was said by these two “News” sources, that Hamas hides in Civilian locations so in order to stop the thousands of missiles that have been launched from Gaza, you have to destroy the launch sites, which are located in mosques, hospitals and civilian centers of population.

  6. ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! It’s enough they provide electricity, water, tax revenue for this animals! Until they change their ways AND agree to pay for each expensive Iron Dome rocket which would intercept the cheep crap Hamas is flying! As an alternative, intercept the rocket and then deduct 20 times the cost of the rocket from their tax revenue.
