I doubt the Iron Dome does anything much, but I also would not give this doubting story too much credit. We don’t know who this scientist is, if he in fact exists at all. This story could simply be part of the back and forth dialectic of the unsolvable-by-design Israeli-Palestinian crisis.
My other thought was don’t be upset at Israelis in Israel. I figure all the money “sent” by Washington to them is simply a credit card for defense spending. I doubt very much of the cash makes it down to the average Israeli shitizen. The only benefactors are the likes of Raytheon and other defense contractors.
An Israeli scientist and award-winning security expert has called the Iron Dome missile defence system “the biggest hoax the world has seen”, Addustour news website has reported.
According to Dr Motty Scheffer, “Today, there is no missile which can intercept other missiles or rocket-propelled grenades, and the Iron Dome is a light audio system which blocks Israeli public opinion and, of course, itself. In fact, all the explosions that we have seen in the atmosphere are self-destruction. The Iron Dome did not launch any rocket that could intercept at least one missile fired from Gaza.”
