Iron Dome Successfully Intercepts Gaza Rockets for First Time

Just heard on Fox News that Israel launched (for the first time) a 200 million dollar weapon to defeat a Gaza attack on that nation. Will add information and links here as I find it.

Via Drudge, I found this article about it:

Haaretz.com: Iron Dome successfully intercepts Gaza rockets for first time

Excerpt:

Missile defense system intercepts two rockets fired at Ashkelon as three rockets from Gaza land in open area in Negev; IDF launches strike on targets in Gaza following attack on school bus earlier in the day.

The Iron Dome missile defense system on Thursday successfully intercepted for the first time two rockets that were fired at the Israeli city of Ashkelon from the Gaza Strip.

According to reports from the area, the interception could be seen in Israeli towns near northern Gaza. The second Iron Dome battery was positioned in the area of Ashkelon over the weekend, in addition to a battery already placed north of Be'er Sheva.

Thank God for the knowledge to enable Israel to develop this much needed missile defense system! Israel is the apple of God's eye and her protection is evident in this latest development of technology that will thwart all of the Arab and Muslim nations that are hell-bent on destroying Her.

Finally, Israel has a defense against the savage attacks from the skies perpetrated by the evils of Islam. I'm sure Hamas and Hezbolla are enraged and ready to take this defense as an act of aggression against the Muslim people to the UN.

Glad it made you smile Susan! You are nice to allow me to use colorful language at times.

I don't quite know why, but when I read your comment I was reminded of a time right after the tragedy of 9/11 where one of my daughter's high school instant messenger friends (whom I didn't approve of, BTW) created a screen name of "Nuke the Arabs." Of course, the sentence might be deemed offensive, but it made me chuckle that this young thug teenager would create such a screen name. Apparently, it was because of love of country that he wrote that. I heard that in later years he joined the military.

Rather than "nuking" people, it is comforting to know that the Israelis can now destroy the weapons constantly bombarding that tiny nation by all of the anti-Zionist radical Islamists in the Middle East.

With Iran so close to creating a nuclear weapon, the timing of this Iron Dome intercepter working is not a coincidence, but in fact, a God send!

Madmath1,

Well put! It's so good, it's worth repeating:

"Finally, Israel has a defense against the savage attacks from the skies perpetrated by the evils of Islam"

It's disgustingly incredible that the UN doesn't even hide it's contempt for Israel anymore. I guess they ramped up their hatred against Israel because Obama's ideology is so blatantly pro-Muslim, the UN now has an evil partner and administration who, unfortunately, sides with them.
