Israel announces upgrade of Iron Dome rocket defense system
"Defense Ministry says it has completed an upgrade of the country's iron Dome rocket defense system to cope with an additional ray of aerial threats and was developed to intercept short ranged unguided rockets on the shotgun. Some 2500 incoming projectiles fired from the Gaza Strip since it was deployed a decade ago. Officials say the system is now capable off intercepting missiles, Salvers and drones. The Iron Dome is part of Israel's multi lead aerial defense system, ranging from systems capable of intercepting rockets fired from short range up to striking long range missiles outside off the atmosphere.
Fresh "Gaza Strip" from Jay Sekulow
"Of course we talk about it. We've done work extensive work in Israel extensive work. On Israel's defense, but we also have an office in Jerusalem. Rami Levy, Ambassador Rami Levy eyes a good friend of ours, Director general of our office there and has gone work around the world on behalf of Israel. Rommie, We've got this reports now of rockets being discharged in Jerusalem by apparently Hamas. A celebration of Jerusalem Day. They were unification of coming. What? What's your sense of what's happening here? Well, um, I believe there is a new sheriff in town. Unfortunately, the old sheriff don't Trump was the super strong and I think sent the right message to Hamas, Iran. And the region. What's happening here is actually Hama smelling weakness on the side off us in the support off Netanyahu government and the Building in Jerusalem. Actually, the rockets of Phil only 4.5 Miles west of our A T. M. J office in Jerusalem, which is a very highest collection, you know, J we Together with you and Jordan. And they feel J team. We constantly visited the Gaza border, and we're actually under Hamas attack of yourselves in Ashkelon. The rope. But here we're talking about shooting at Jerusalem on Duh. This is a major escalation and I believe Israel will hit very hard toe retaliate you so you expect to receive a serious response. Yes, Already the Israeli air force is attacking and Gaza, but I don't believe that it's going to end by that. I'm not sure you know, but Hamas also shut the anti tank him yourself if the jeep in the Gaza border and hit it. Fortunately, the driver was very slightly injured. But in the past week Mark has been sending and Hillary balloons and burn the fields off a lot of the, uh, settlements on the Gaza border. Have been doing it for the last four years. Every time it's warm. They send balloons with fire to fire the field. The the citizens of the Gaza border in the Children are not Had post from other constant trauma off 20 years of being shut it. So, um, probably, um, I believe very soon. Uh, the idea will have to attack very strongly. Now let me go to Colonel West myth from our team because there's a military component that we got a question for hair. Hutchins and the Colonel Smith first. Okay, you military why this happens What military preparation look like, What do they do Well, and they're showing remarkable restraint. You know, I was thinking about the duplicity and hypocrisy of the White House reaction to this. Can you imagine Jerusalem is the capital of Israel? Can you imagine if a group was firing missiles into Washington, D. Sea. Would they be calling for the government not to respond and to somehow restore calm, But the Israeli military that they are there to protect the people. This anti tank rounds along the Gaza Strip is a serious thing. What they're doing is they are using the Israeli air force to attack the locations from which the rockets are being fired. Unfortunately, what Hamas has the habitual practice of doing is putting some of those rocket launchers and your schools hospitals instead, billionaires. And yet, even with that J the Israeli air force very seldom will injure a civilian that there's there that careful, Andy. You and I have been up on the border with Rami on the Golan Heights where we have peered over into Syria. And we saw where they were firing These rockets. Adam and these with almost like these almost looks like a set from a movie where they have the civilian areas, and that's where the hospitals in the schools where they're shooting it out off. We've seen it. That's exactly true, Jack. That's exactly true. J. I remember being in the Golan Heights with you over looking into Syria. When has bullet began firing missiles into the Israeli territory in the northeastern part of of Israel? There in the Golan Heights, and we were there was a military person. It was sort of guiding us and put us into safety before several hours out of harm's way, so that we would not have to face this kind of action that was coming in from the enemy. But they say, important to the points that have been made that this would not have happened in my opinion. Had there been a Trump administration in the White House because the Palestinians Hamas has below the enemies. The terrorists would know that we would not have stood for this on behalf of Israel, and I know that Israel is not going to stand for this on behalf of itself during the break. Ask Terry Hutchinson for analysis because he's our director of policy as toe this and he gave a really good announced. I want the radio honesty here and then we're gonna We get Rommie to respond. J Let me answer your question with some questions. Why are the Palestinians rioting? Why do the nations rage why air rockets being fired into Israel indiscriminately? Why the terrorists imagine a vein thing. And why does the Biden administration call for de escalation in the Middle East when such calls typically backfire and lead to more violence? We have had virtual peace in the Middle East for a number of years during the past administration. Why? Because there was a new sheriff in town, and as I've said before, now we have a new social worker in the White House. Rather than believing in peace through strength. The biting administration apparently believes in peace through spinelessness, and this begets more and more violence that I think is the quintessential problem that we face. Yeah and Rami. There's another aspect of this, too, because Israel politically right now is not exactly stable because you got governments that we've had elections and And there's a question on who's gonna be able to form the government. Do you think that's playing into monsters? Calculation here? I think it's part of it, but also another major parts, and you can look at history. What Hamas is doing and what the Palestinians have been doing is using Temple Mount. There's a place for where they can instigate fires. That will recruit shit around the Middle East in the Muslim world. And if you see what they've been doing, you know they've been rioting in Temple Mount in order for the Israeli police tow Colin, stop them from throwing stones and Molotov bottles at the Jewish I'll be praying at the Western Wall. By doing that they were really escalating and having the leaders of Egypt Even you know the new emperor and accord the nation. Such a ring acted. It's all you used to call it. Remember, with General Nam getting used to walk on the government border, and he used to call it Hollywood that the Palestinians are actually trying to stage This is staging in order to get the world to attack Israel. I think there's 100%, right. Yeah, I think there's a lot of people to blame and your phone lines are open. I want to hear from you 164 31 10. I think there's a lot of people who are misinformed. You don't understand the plight of what's going on. I think there's a lot of the progressive church and liberal Christians that needs to you know, essentially give me literally and I mean there's the literal Hill out of this topic because it is a ridiculous thing that they're going on this and saying Here's the right side. Here's the good sign the bats. I look. What's happening. They're falling for the trap is, he said the Hollywood if you will of the stage idea that there is a good side and a bad side to this and the bad side and something Israel who are not the ones lobbing rockets. On by the way I holiday Way. Keep really This is a celebratory day. People are in the streets today with their Israeli flags. This is a big This is similar to it. What would be like an Independence Day celebration? But for some reason, we forgotten this. We've let it slip by. We've had progressive Christians and the progressive left. Take over all of this. This was a topic that honestly, very rarely came up in the entire I thought that was a big failure. Honestly, I said it before in the debates and everything that this was a topic that was Kept being brushed over for more ridiculous things. They never brought up the Middle East. The success of what was happening in the Middle East. It was always a like 10th row. Think of her for some reason in the Trump administration. I was like that's your number one. That's the number one or number two. This should be very important people and it is. You know, it's the number one trend right now is people talking about Israel one way or the other and the fact that you had relative peace there? For as long as you did specifically in Jerusalem. I said Rockets have not been fired in Jerusalem since 2014 who was the president in 2014, Barack Obama. This is what happens? Yeah, but also, you know, you have to understand something. Romney. People need to send this about Jerusalem. It's a tight space. It's a It's a tight area. It's not a big city. Right. But the great example of how Trump was the sheriff of the region if you remember J when you came and we celebrated together the opening of the U. S embassy in Jerusalem. This treats were field with those youngsters dancing with flags right next to the Waldorf Hotel rent. You know that now today is used on day and Is will have to stop all the celebrations and Jerusalem because of worrying about the safety of the people. So that the difference? Uh, marble in the Palestinian No. That they can really play the game and they're playing the game for the media..

We believe during the night they're already on the third around of them on. We just got a notice before I came on air that Israel has attacked Hamas tunnel, the network of tunnels. So this appears to be one of the most aggressive of bombing campaigns by Israel in the Gaza Strip in some time, and what was the flash point for that initial Hamas barrage that's now drawn the reaction from the Israeli government? Well, the Palestinians have had a lot of Issues. I should say things that they have been extremely angry about and it has kind of exploded in this violence at the All Aqsa Mosque today, where another 300 were wounded. It began at the beginning of Ramadan when Israel place Barriers blocking a very popular hangout site that caused two weeks of protests and rocket fire. Then there's the issue of a very contentious Vic shin notice that was given to some air presidents and used Jerusalem when they lose their home. Two Israeli Jews who claim the property belonged to Jews before the state of Israel was established. That's a case that has really, you know, made Palestinians. Furious on it is a case of the Israeli Supreme Court is going to weigh in on and thirdly, the Palestinians are very accepted their their elections were canceled. And they were told by their leader was that most of the reason for that was that Israel would not allow some Palestinians to vote in any Jerusalem now that's not true.

Coronavirus: Israel marks Jewish New Year with second lockdown
"Rush Shawna or Jewish New Year begins at sunset this evening. But for Israel this new. Year's anything. But happy as the country becomes the first major economy to enter into a second. Nationwide lockdown against a backdrop of serious discontent towards the handling of the pandemic and the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself Israel, which was one of the first countries to enact stringent measures to inhibit the spread of the virus is shutting down. Again, the three weeks we'll joining me now is Alison Kopplin summer who is a journalist for hurt a good morning to you alison. Why is this can lockdown necessary? Well. It's basically necessary because our infection rates which reached a really dramatic low back in in May. have been creeping up all through the summer months and then I'm have basically exploded beginning. At the end of August, beginning of September which was really. Enhanced by the the return of of kids to school we really see that they've absolutely been able to to mark. A connection between the fact that kids went back to school on. September first and that since then the the rates have been have been doubling and and surging among the general population at an unprecedented rate before that, it was basically concentrated in certain populations, certain cities, certain neighborhoods. But as kids went back to school, it just exploded across the entire population. So this goes against what the so corona virus saw said a couple of months ago when he asserted the socio economic trauma inflicted by covert restrictions was greater than its health impacts. So can you help line the state of the economy and how these further restrictions will impact on businesses? Well. There's been a huge debate going into this lockdown as to the extent to which private businesses should be allowed to continue business as usual a huge debate over the the pain that closing down business will cause versus the attempt to to fight the to fight the lockdown We already have a major unemployment problem and unlike European countries Israel has not been fully compensating businesses for their losses. and. So there's a huge bitter angry rebellion by business owners small and large and not insignificant chance that this time around because people have much less faith than they did in the first lockdown there's going to be a lot of businesses I predict violating the restrictions and an opening for business even in the face of the of the restrictions I mean, what does the Don actually entailed? Everything must close. Everything must close except for essential services such as supermarkets and and pharmacies public offices will be open, but they won't receive. receive the public in In Government Offices Private businesses. Again, this came after fight are two privately reopened with a with a minimal amount of staff in in Workplaces So you know the economy is being partially allowed to function. That's why there are so many as they say, Swiss cheese holes in this lockdown but they're worried that you know in the attempts to keep the economy going to an extent know if schools are out, you can't have a full economy running. That they're putting so many holes in it in order to keep the the economy functioning at a certain rate that it's going to be ineffective in terms of of actually bringing the infection rate down significantly what about the situation in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip? The situation is bad there too. There's a lockdown in Gaza right now and and the West Bank is also suffering from from it from an outbreak. So they are they're not in any kind of renewed full scale lockdown, the way that that we are, but they are they're in a difficult place as well. Now, this as you mentioned a huge amount of opposition to this and people are actually protesting who's out on the streets. Well There's always been a religious secular divide in. Israel? Approximately. Twenty twenty, five percent of our population are Orthodox smaller. percent of that are also Orthodox and those daybreak cities where the ultra-orthodox resided partially because of the large family size there and how how dense their residences is that has been really a hotbed of infection as well as Arab towns and. Cities and so it's been very hard for them to specially over a long period of six months to stop with their large gatherings, their traditions, their prayers, etc, and that is countered by. On, the other side and on the secular side, the need to protest against a Netanyahu how he's had this corruption trial, they've had large protests. So basically, there's this back and forth going on why can we not gather in a? Study Jewish learning while you can gather on the streets and have a protest, and for example, why can you go to your ritual baths and we can't go to the beach? So there's there's a lot of fourth fighting and then the the biggest and most desperate cry is from the business owners who are feeling so much economic pain. So there's protests coming from from all directions and how will this affect the political situation? While the political situation isn't good to begin with one of the reasons that Israel has been. So crippled in fighting the corona virus situation is as I said, really hotbeds of infection at least as of two three months ago we're in these ultra-orthodox cities neighborhoods, and what the coronavirus czar planned to do came in trying to do is to really shut those cities down and really be able without harming the economy on a large scale to focus the approach inside these communities and political pressures. made it impossible for Netanyahu, to really stand behind his are and do the because the ultra Orthodox parties said, if you close our cities if you shut down now. If, you don't allow us to go to synagogue. We are going to leave your coalition and basically bring down the government, and that's why at every turn these ultra-orthodox parties have been able to twist the government's arm into allowing them to have more freedom than the secular public looks at what's going on in the religious sector and they say, well, if they're not GONNA do it. We're not going to do it, and then you've got a very bad dynamic there. I listen Israel forced all foreign arrivals to self isolate on March the night that was before the World Health Organization announced that it was in fact, a pandemic given the the the country is now in this situation, won't you think that other nations around the world can learn by watching this? I think really the biggest lesson that that Israel can teach the world is. Opening up schools particularly when it above the age of ten or so is really a dangerous difficult and problematic as much as we all want to see our children. In school learning getting an in person education that that is really the trigger. This is now the second time that that sending kids to school have have sent our infection rates. Rising, and that's why any kind of a resumption of studies has to be done extremely slowly carefully in a measured way starting with the youngest kids and slowly going. Up and keeping a very, very strong monitoring. On how that that is affecting the society because kids go to school, they get infected, they come home in the infect their entire families.

COVID-19:infections areworseningeverywhere, warnsUN agency for Palestine refugees
"Covid nineteen infections at bay among Palestinian refugees has never been so crucial as the new school year gets underway the UN. Relief. and Works Agency unrehearsed said in an interview with you and uses Daniel. Johnson. Agency spokesperson tomorrow I'll refi explains how the agency's put changes in place to try and keep safety five point six million people at AIDS across Jordan, Lebanon Syria, and the West Bank including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. Well, Anura has just launched an appeal to raise funds for it to be able. To continue responding to the consequences of covid nineteen, the immediate emergency of course is a health emergency and making sure that the Palestinian refugee community and the staff are all safe. The other immediate emergency is making sure that the Palestinian refugee community has access to all the critical services that's on your what gifts them even though the way we deliver these services has changed. So for instance, needs to have access to medical services, but they can no longer come to the Anura health centers instead on health staff, proceeds through telemedicine and home delivery of. Drugs, right. So people are getting their essential health needs but I think what was most alarming about what you said over the weekend was that the number of covid infections really are starting to spike alarmingly could you make a bit more detail about that owner is very concerned about the spike in numbers of covid nineteen across the countries we work, and so we've seen a spike in the West Bank over the last few weeks but also a spike in Lebanon recently, spy can Gaza with until not very long ago was relatively contained. We also saw a spike in Jordan and Syria would the conflict we hear about. But there is very little data and information coming from there. So everywhere we work seems to be becoming worse and the point is that you're able to keep it at bay if you like the infections of this new corona virus, because you were helping some of the five point, six million registered Palestine Refugees in the middle, East with what they needed to stay at home and keep away from others. So therefore preventing transmission of the virus, but that has now changed because people just literally have to. Get back to work only able to contain largely the outspread of Covid nineteen because we were able to convince people to stay home convinced them meaning delivering to their homes, what they needed whether it's food assistance or whether it's medicine or whether it's distance learning the problem is when the situation took much longer than we thought people needed to go back to work and to their livelihoods Palestine refugees say things like we rather catch covid nineteen than go hungry. Yeah, and you can understand that you of course. You can understand that given the scale of the social economic impact of Covid, nineteen around the world it's only worse on vulnerable communities like refugee communities and in particular Palestinian refugee communities. Another element of your work is obviously education and I know that you commissioner general is very proud of the educational support that you give to what five, hundred thousand Palestinian refugee children. Maybe you could tell me about how they're back to school challenges have panned out whether they're doing remote learning the actually backing class the. Early, signs are all very exciting and very positive students across the fields we work at. Enron are extremely excited to go back to school. We're talking about half a million girls and boys in over seven hundred schools. We're talking about a big cohort of people and a bit cohort of people who work committed in the last academic year to continuing their learning even though it was remote and often difficult. When you're a Palestine refugee, you don't necessarily have an individual tablet and constant internet coverage and yet the. Students that went on learning. Last year was really high and this is something we are very proud of this year. We have several scenarios in place either the children go fully back to school physically while respecting social distancing in hygiene rules and everything where they have a blended approach. So they go for three days to school and they study remotely for three days. We also have a scenario in case the situation gets worse and we have another lockdown where students fully lauren remotely. So we're looking at all scenarios where prepared to mix and match just to continue education and what Would you say in terms of covid exposing the weaknesses of the system of you like we've seen all over the world it's exposed the frailties of already mentioned of people with chronic illness those who don't have a job with some welfare support. What would you say in the five the five areas under works East Jerusalem Gaza Strip Lebanon Syria the West Bank and Jordan let in every crisis. The most vulnerable are the ones who are most put to the test and in the case of Covid nineteen as you said, a lot of the weaknesses of difference systems whether it's health education. Welfare were tested however, some of the strengths of some institutions were also tested in the case of Anura because we have a very long and solid experience and education in emergencies for example, were able to shift very quickly to distance learning and to supporting students and families, and the teachers and the education staff to continue education the same for health services we do have that experience, which unfortunately we took from various wars and conflicts and emergencies, but it's an experience that's helped us well in this lockdown and closure face because of covid nineteen.

How bad the situation in Gaza is Gaza's essentially manmade humanitarian catastrophe that kind of unfolds day after day were sitting here in Washington DC. So I like to think about how big GAAS is Gaza is about just under two million people living in an area about twice the size of Washington D C with a critical challenge. There is this lack of freedom of movement, the inability of people of Gaza to move to adjacent areas. And so imagine living in Washington DC, wearing Gaza only.

"Live from Washington D, C J secular live. And now chief counsel for the American Center for law and Justice. Jay seculow. So I get this alert that I have on my iphone that lets me know when there's rockets being launched into Israel. And I will tell you yesterday that alert the red alert it's called you should download the app. It's a fascinating thing to watch the understand what the Israelis are living with every day. Well, here's what happened. There was a series of these upwards of three hundred rockets came in yesterday, the militant group HAMAs, which is controlling still most of the Gaza Strip pledged to actually increase the attacks on Israel per quote. It's aggression the threat from a mosque came as the Israeli military said it was carrying out a wide scale strike on military targets throughout the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian kept up their most intense rocket fire since two thousand fourteen now I've been in the region when that has happened we have been there when that has happened shoot is with me and our headquarters here in Washington DC Stewart, we've experienced these rocket attacks firsthand. And you know, where this money's coming from two to propel these rockets from Iran. That's why the Iran sanctions are are so important, Jay. But yeah, we we've been there numerous times, this is Israel's neighbor, unfortunately, who is devoted to destructing the state of Israel. They don't want peace. It's in their constitution. They wanted to destroy Israel. It's not about settlements. It's not about this. It's not about that. They they really look at the entire Israel is being one big settlement that needs to be characterized it to another Arab state. Yeah. They want the destruction of Israel. They say that in the HAMAs. Charter by the way, it's clear as you can be a Westmeath is our our military senior military officer Colonel in the United States army retired. The reports are that it's actually four hundred rockets or mortar bombs across the border from Gaza into Israel after carrying out. This was after the railways carried out an attack on HAMAs leadership killing one of the Maas leaders. What's your sense of this? And I'm going to give you some personal experience. We down in that actual region when that has happened. Yeah. Thanks J. I had to turn off my. Red alert because it kept going off all night long, waking me up, but HAMAs, you know, of course, is a terrorist group. They are estimated to have over twenty thousand rockets and mortars in their arsenal and Stewart's right they fired yesterday laser guided anti tank round at an Israeli bus. That's the first time. That's happened. They threatened at the same time. They were going to use more advanced projectiles. They call them to bring about what they're saying a million Zionist within range of their rockets, this laser-guided technology, and this fisticuffs guidance system that there are threatening to us is what we discovered two months ago that Iran was supplying both to HAMAs and Hezbollah so rans fingerprints are all over this. I think is pretty disingenuous for HAMAs to say that they that newsreel started this by sending that of undercover unit into the Gaza Strip. They went into the Gaza Strip because HAMAs continues. To stage violent demonstrations at the border. They continue to send incendiary kites into Israel, thousands of acres west. I think it's important for you to explain to our audience because this is a new technique that utilize these incendiary kites, these are basically a kite then catches areas on fires pointing people what this is again. This is another aspect of warfare is very simple is easy to do. And they have flown literally hundreds of kites over into Israel, you wait till the wind direction is right. You put but what basically is a molotov cocktail kind of device on it with a very very long cloth or string fuse. So that it takes awhile for for the actual fuse to get into the fuel use gasoline or whatever. And then it explodes and the fuel spreads everywhere. Like, I said thousands of acres of land and several buildings in Israel have been destroyed by these kites, so Israel sent this unit into Gaza this intelligence unit undercover because they're trying to stop this violence, not only add the border, but that's spilling across into Israel, HAMAs fired on the unit, and that's how they started and is pretty disingenuous for them to say, well, we'll stop this when usual stops the aggression. The aggressors are HAMAs. I'm going to try to see if we can get David Benjamin Rami Levy from our office in Jerusalem on in the next couple of segments of the broadcast. So we'll be working on that. I'll let me tell you this. We're taking a break we come back and take more your calls and more information. We're gonna talk about the situation in Israel. What does it mean for the greater region? Also, what does it mean for the greater national and international security? But also don't forget the matching challenge of the ACL J any money you donate to the ACLU.

We do a lot to condemn the boycott divestment sation movement in the United States a lot of this anti-semitism on college campuses.

Is against something as organization we combat some of these individuals. We should all combat and acknowledged it is an issue. That's. In the United States as it is in most of the world. Unfortunately, since the beginning of time and today on the broadcast, virtually focusing in on what Israel has been doing in response to attacks on the Jewish state of Israel. I think it's a unique time to point out. There has been a esscalation over the weekend. In fact, just this weekend it Israel out of the Gaza Strip so targeted Israel, thirty rockets were fired by Gaza based militants how this group is called Palestinian Islamic Jihad or sometimes just referred to as Islamic Jihad, the Israel as a government holds Tomasz responsible for Islamic Jihad's activities at Hamas Islamic Jihad work together often, but there are times when they are separate. And so you'll see that Islamic Jihad is also based in Damascus where a lot of their leaders are headquartered. To get protection. So that they are not actually in harm's way directly. So their leadership. They're HAMAs leadership Muslim brother a hood leadership both groups emanating, by the way from the Muslim Brotherhood at from HAMAs. But interesting enough, even though it's coming out of the SUNY world getting alive, it's funding from the Shia world in Iran. So first, let's talk this weekend. I'll go to Harry Hutchison. Harry this weekend, we saw really escalation just specifically between Islamic Jihad and Israel comes out of the Gaza Strip, but thirty rockets being fired at the state of Israel, and then Israel responding back with a specific attacks on eighty targets. Absolutely. So this is an important and ominous development these attacks coming from Gaza suggests that HAMAs is working with the Islamic Jihad. It's working with Syria and ultra. It's working with Iran, which is the source of much of the mischief in the Middle East. So in response to provocation, essentially by Iran and its surrogates including this mic jihad has blah militants in Syria. Israel has conducted an aggressive military campaign across Syria against Iran, backed militias groups, and in Gaza, this is highly necessary Israel cannot allow these militants to build up an arsenal as basis of continued attacks on Israel, and it could lead ultimately to another outbreak of a small or perhaps a large war. Yeah. I mean, you're talking about a again organizations that emanate out of again the. Primarily here you've got the Gaza Strip the Islamic Jihad group unlike HAMAs operates pretty heavily in the West Bank as well. So that is why they are though HAMAs because they are the governing power in the Gaza Strip. So if these rockets are launched Israel holds for Moscow responsible for not preventing the rockets from being launched by these other groups and sometimes working tandem. So I know that the again, it's the Middle East things get complicated by understand there's Lama jihad group also operates in the West Bank controlled by the PLO or the Palestinian Authority. And so they, but what is unique to what kind of ties them all together is the funding that they receive from Iran, and specifically Iran's revolutionary guard forces where do those funds flow through they flow through Damascus now, even at a time when you would imagine that Syria is extremely unstable that has been one of the headquarters for these Islamic Palestine. Slavic terror groups so west we're seeing an increase not just between attacks in the Gaza Strip and Israel. But specifically over just the past eighteen months, the really escalation what Israel is doing in Syria and targeting Iran forces there, every one of their primary goals is to prevent Iran from having an occupying force inside Syria. Yeah. Exactly over the last eighteen months, Israel has launched. They think about two hundred airstrikes in Syria, and what really Israel is trying to do. They're trying to head off. What would be a major major war in the Middle East and they're doing that. Through these air attacks, first of all they're trying to stop Iran from having a permanent military base near the Israeli border. They're trying to head off a major war because they realize that if Iran had a permanent presence there, they vowed to destroy Israel. Or if they increase weaponry to Hezbollah in Lebanon that again could lead to a major war and they're trying to block weapon shipments coming to Lebanon. There are a lot of ground convoys going through Iraq across Syria to Lebanon to arm Hezbollah and also to to arm Iranian backed militias. So Israel's trying to stop that. But the frightening thing you were talking about the the missiles being fired from the Gaza Strip just last week Israeli intelligence released a report that once again Iran is using civilian airliners to ship weapons and weapons components. The missiles that have been fired from Gaza into Israel and from Lebanon into Israel. They have not been guided missiles. They're sort of lobbed into the territory hoping that they will hit something. However last week it was revealed that some of these civilian planes are now delivering sophisticated guidance systems to Hezbollah so they can take these guidance systems, install it in the missiles, so that they can actually pinpoint specific targets in Israel. That is a major game changer in this conflict. Iran is really behaving in a dangerous, and reckless fashion, and the terror groups that you can Harry talked about they could not do what they do without the financial support of Iran and also the weapons that are supplied to these groups Veyron, Iran, they try to use their proxy, so they can have plausible deniability, but their goal is the destruction of the nation of Israel, and they receive guidance shows like they just give all these resources. If you do what you want. They're coming with that that's kind of the carrots. So that Iran is able to control these groups whether it's Hezbollah. Or you're talking about a group like Slavic jihad or even a moss they want to be able to control them and their actions. So they do this. The is talking about the weapons as incentives, but understand Iran's role in this just to underscore. But west is talking about using this aircraft as a military away of delivering military good to recognize terror organizations take to Gerald Jackie as well. He was discussing how this has been uncovered. This is something newly uncovered that. Iran has started to do what's happening in Iran is very aggressive because Syria means so much to them. So they fly on chartered airplanes or their military aircraft in Damascus missiles ammunition, commodities. Also, use commercial airlines to do the very same thing. And then they're driving through Iraq into eastern Syria and bringing also ammunition and supplies to that White House has said the quality. Iran and Hezbollah cannot be allowed to build an arsenal of weapons on Israel's border that threatens the region. Yeah, we have this question came in so interesting what Harry on Facebook. We will get your phone calls as well. We got callers hold on as well. One eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten if you want to talk to us on air that's one eight hundred six eight four three one one zero but call who called and said besides the United States, which countries in the Middle East back is against terror group supported by Iran. It's a complicated question because many countries that do not support Israel would would also don't support Iran in the Gulf states. There's some have more behind the seeds bit support of Israel. But certainly this again shows you this question it could be the entire thesis on the Middle East. Absolutely. You could certainly write a number of books on politics. I think it's clear beyond question that the public posture of most Middle Eastern countries. Is one of opposition to Israel on the other hand based on real politic, and the strategic implications of allowing Iran to run rampant in the Middle East, many of the same Middle Eastern countries, which publicly oppose Israel are actually working covertly with Israeli authorities to fort Iran, and this is highly necessary because Iranians are acting as mastermind of much of the conflict in the Middle East is something we need to address strategically Israel is working on that as we speak. When we come back. We will play for you over the weekend. Iran's foreign minister putting Israel and Saudi Arabia the same category. The US support it.
