Palestinians Build Symbol of Hate on Temple Mount

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Yoni Alper, on his Terror Watch facebook page, posted the above photo from the Temple Mount, taken on Thursday morning.

While Jewish children in Jerusalem are building snowmen and having friendly snowball fights, The Arabs, on the holiest site to Judaism, and a site the Arabs claim is holy to them too, are building symbols of hate, M-75 missiles out of snow, to show what they want to do to Israel.

The M-75 is the Gazan long-range missile that targeted Jerusalem and Tel Aviv during the “Pillar of Defense” operation.

During the war initiated by Gaza, the Palestinians launched M-75 rockets  at Israel from heavily populated areas. Gazan rockets were often launched at Israel from sites next to schools, and mosques.

As far as snow art goes, placing it next to the Al Asqa mosque is true to life.

What Terrorists Smell Like – M-75 for Sale in Gaza Beauty Shops

Monday, December 10th, 2012

A new perfume for sale in Gaza utilizes a fragrance which is “pleasant and attractive, like the missiles of the Palestinian resistance,” and is being named after a missile used in the most recent bout of attacks on Israeli civilians, M-75.

The perfume is priced at double the cost of most perfumes available in Gaza beauty shops, and is being dubbed “worthy of the victory in the Gaza Strip”.

M-75 will be available in male and female scents.

According to a report by Ynet, Lebanese perfumers created a similar scent-sation after the 2006 Second Lebanon War.  In a bottle baring the image of Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah, “Resistance Perfume” included images of a sinking ship to symbolize the destruction of Israel.

Magic Wand Works

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

A joint US-Israel anti-missile system called Magic Wand successfully intercepted a missile in a test on Sunday. The anti-missile system is also called David’s Sling in Israel.

Magic Wand is being jointly developed by Rafael in Israel, and Raytheon in the US. It’s primary target are missiles with ranges of at least 70 kilometers, such as ballistic missiles and long range rockets.

The goal is for Magic Wand to be operational by 2014.

It’s estimated that each missile costs 1 million dollars.

The Very Impressive Iron Dome

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

Though the international community has been consistent in calling for Israel to stop defending itself from Gazan missile attacks by destroying missile launching sites and parties, Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense systems have gained respect and admiration worldwide, dependably annihilating rockets on their way to targets in Israeli residential areas.

The Associated Press wrote a report touting the success of Iron Dome, and explaining its specs and uses.

In the report, the AP noted that the Israeli-based Rafael Advanced Defense Systems produced Iron Dome, which was intended to shoot down missiles and artillery in an up to 45 mile range.  So far, the five Iron Dome batteries deployed in Israel’s south and outside Tel Aviv have succeeded 8 out of every 10 uses.

The state-of-the-art Iron Dome system calculates the trajectory of each missile, allowing those which are headed toward unpopulated areas to land, and immediately intercepting those which are headed toward populated or important areas using a special warhead.

If there is any downside to Iron Dome, it is the price tag.  Each missile costs $40,000. In 2010, the US put $200 million into expanding the development – a greater budget is being anticipated for 2012.

The Iron Dome system operates under the same principal as the “Arrow” missile defense system, which is meant to protect against long-range missiles from Iran, and is the predecessor of the upcoming “David’s Sling” anti-missile system, being developed by Rafael to neutralize medium-range missiles by 2014.

A Pillar of Fire at Night: Iron Dome in Action Over Be’er Sheva (Video)

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

We invite you to view a slice of ordinary/extraordinary life in Israel in this video.

Be’er Sheva is an ancient/modern desert city that most people visit, if they ever go there, because of its first-rateuniversity (Ben Gurion) and its hospital, one of the busiest in Israel. But like many forgotten places in various parts of the world, it’s also home for a certain number of people, nearly 200,000 of them.

Now that Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and practically every other Israeli community in the southern half of Israel have experienced the blood-chilling sound of air-raid sirens in the past three days (and in some places, many repeats of the experience), it may be interesting for people living far from here to see and hear what it feels like from the ground.

We don’t know the exact number, but the residents of Be’er Sheva have experienced dozens of incoming missile warnings since Wednesday night. The one captured in this video involves multiple rockets flying in from Gaza. Through the magic of videography, they appear here as floating fairy lights in an ink-black sea of heavens above the ground-level festivities of an ordinary shopping center.

Then one after another in rapid succession they are extinguished. The reality of what is happening is much less poetic, but astonishing when you pause to think about it: an anti-missile technology that did not exist anywhere in the world is now knocking these terrorist flying bombs out of the sky as the ordinary folk who are the actual targets of an attempt to kill them in quantities watch from below and quietly applaud.

It’s larger than life. But it’s life. Our life, for now.

How Much Time Do You Have?

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

A map showing the amount of time the residents of each district in Israel have to get into a bomb shelter after a rocket has been launched. The critical areas are right around the Gaza Strip, ut, depending on the missile, no one is completely safe.

Sirens in Tel Aviv, Residents Report an Explosion, Rocket Falls in Rishon L’Tzion

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

An alarm sounded Thursday evening in the city of Tel Aviv. Gush-Dan area residents reported hearing a very loud explosion. The Islamic Jihad issued a statement claiming that it fired a Fajr-5 missile toward Tel Aviv. The missile has not yet been discovered and there’s no known damage.

The missile that was fired earluer on Rishon L’Tzion, to the south of Tel Aviv, fell in an open area causing no damage. The Hamas claimed responsibility for it.

The first Fajr-5 rockets an Iranian development of the Chinese WS-1 MLRS that was exported to Iran in the late 1980s. In 2006, Iran’s Aerospace Industries Organization (AIO) announced it had developed an upgraded version of the Fajr-5 333 mm (4-round) unguided surface-to-surface artillery rocket system.

During the 2006 Lebanon War, Hezbollah fired Fajr-5 rockets deeper into Israeli space than any previous time. It is believed that those “Khaibar-1″ rockets, as Hezbollah called them, were an enhanced version of the Iranian-made Fajr-5 rockets.
