Latest Skirmish with Syria Shows Israel Is Much Weaker Than It Looks

By Eric Striker | National Justice | April 22, 2021

For years Israel’s Arab neighbors have grown accustomed to routine unprovoked attacks on their infrastructure, soldiers and civilians by the Jewish state.

While Syria’s air defense has been increasing its success rate in quashing Israeli raids, the latest exchange between the two countries has opened up the possibility to strike back.

Yesterday, a missile bypassed Israel’s Patriot, Iron Dome and David’s Sling missile defense systems and landed close to the delicate Dimona nuclear reactor in its Southern desert, triggering panic in the city when its alarm went off. The Dimona nuclear facility is highly secretive as it is used to produce Israel’s illegal nuclear weapons.

A press release by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) made no specific mention of this, which is unusual. The Israeli military is claiming that the projectile was an errant Syrian surface to air missile intended for Israeli jets, but this is difficult to believe as it flew across half of Israel from far away Damascus.

For Israel’s rivals, the American tax payer funded Iron Dome system has been a psychological barrier to punching Israel back. While Hamas has in the past been able to get small rockets through the system, the goal in these attacks has always been to waste Israel’s money (Iron Dome missiles cost $100,000 each) rather than attack strategic targets.

Accidental or not, Wednesday’s lapse in Israel’s defense, near its nuclear facility no less, shows that it is very vulnerable to rapidly advancing Iranian and possibly even Russian technology that has found its way into Lebanese resistance group Hezbollah’s hands.

Just days ago, Israeli military officials raised alarms about the Iron Dome system potentially being junk. According to retired Colonel Yossi Langotsky, the Iron Dome would not be able to intercept Hezbollah rockets launched into Israeli territory with consistency.

There is strong circumstantial evidence to suggest Iranian involvement. Last week, Iranian military analyst Sadollah Zarei suggested that any Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities should be met with retaliation against their Dimona reactor. Landing a missile 30 kilometers from Dimona could be a message to Jewish leadership that they are serious.

The Israeli military also announced in recent weeks that it was rushing defense resources to Dimona due to fears that the Iranians could hit the nuclear base as revenge for the brazen assassination campaign against their scientists. This, like their Syria story, also seems like a lie, as the Iranians and Syrians know that triggering a nuclear catastrophe in Israel would be automatic grounds for a full war not just with Israel, but the United States. The more plausible scenario is that Israel wanted the Iranians to believe that, if ever tested, the defense of its vital infrastructure is impenetrable so that they can keep bombing Iranian power plants on the table without risking mutual consequences.

None of the players involved have an interest to tell us what really happened yesterday. Whatever the exact details are, Israeli homeland defense has been exposed as a paper tiger.

As Russia and China begin overshadowing the United States and Western Europe on the world stage, Iran is able to assert its interests in spite of what Jews in Washington and Jerusalem think. The era of uncontested Israeli hegemony is coming to an end.

  1. Yeah, the “Iron Dome” system is no good, but those $100 000 missiles don’t cost the Zios anything: the American taxpayer foots all the bills. Blowing up the Dimona reactor complex is a tempting thought, but it might not be advisable, as there would undoubtedly be a lot of radioactive contamination over a wide area. Same reason the Zios can’t nuke the local goyim, much to their frustration.

  2. This situation will be used to extort more American money for more Israeli military uses. In this case, the boilerplate “Israel has the right to defend itself.” will in all likelihood, be trotted out to justify more American money. To protect what Israel has never admitted. And, in all likelihood, The Samson Option thing: if we go, the rest of the world goes, ’cause who knows where our nuclear missiles are aimed; could be you, stupid goyim. And remember, opposition means… well, consider Lord Moyne in 1944; a few, ahem, well dozen Brits in the King David Hotel in 1946; Folke Bernadotte in 1947; James Forrestal a few months later; US servicemen and navy aboard the USSLiberty; as well as the almost-certain big prizes: JFK; the World Trade Center. As well as the outright murder of American citizens, such as Rachel Corrie, or right here in America as well, Alex Odeh, et al.

    Israel’s best friend? With friends like this, who needs a State Department, how pathetic that when Israel dictates, America jumps and shells out the foreign aid? What a sucker. What a dupe. What a slave. But, the Jewish concept is either a slave or dead, if not a jew. That is not only written, but believed. Practiced. And practiced. And practiced.

    No wonder, the motto of Mossad: By way of deception, you shall make war.

    Israel is not an ally. It is the opposite.
