Close your eyes, breathe in deeply, now exhale slowly… That was easy, wasn’t it? Not for everyone…
Did you hear what Obama is offering?
F-35 Stealth Bombers.
Are you serious?
Have you forgotten that Israel is under an existential threat, that our neighbors seek to destroy us?
Iran, of course.
What do you think, that Israel can do whatever it wants? We have international pressure. Luckily, the Americans still stand by our side.
They will stop selling us spare parts for the planes.
Yes. That is what the experts say. We have not bombed Iran because if we do, the Americans will not sell us the spare parts for their fighter jets.
Just a minute. Are you proposing that we throw all the American jets in the garbage?
And how will you fight, with sticks and stones?
Israel can produce a platform for a stealth bomber, together with the aeronautics industries of other nations that are eager for this type of partnership. Alternately, Israel can produce the platform itself, as it did with the Lavi project. What is certain is that the F-35 deal is leading us in the opposite direction: More dependence on American weapons is another obstacle in the face of Israeli weapons production, and most important of all another obstacle in the face of our ability to defend ourselves from the most serious existential threats that we face.
