Israel’s Iron Dome

The Iron Dome is Israel’s defense solution to Hamas’ rocket attacks (3600 + to date)
on targeted Israeli civilians, not military, populated areas.  The Dome’s effectiveness
is between 75% and 95%.  Hamas always fires from civilian areas using its civilians
as shields, and stores its rockets in schools and hospitals.  Without the dome,
Israel would have thousands of civilians killed without warning. When Israel counter
fires it announces to the Hamas’s civilian shields with a ten minute lead time to evacuate.
The US media only criticizes Israel for the collateral damage from their counter fire,
but not Hamas for its rockets and resulting deaths and injuries. Remember, Hamas started
this war, and announced to the world that it will destroy Israel and the USA.
Hamas has rejected or violated every cease fire and peace proposal.  The USA grants
millions of US dollars for humanitarian purposes to the authorities in the Gaza
Strip, but Hamas either steals or is given this money for more rockets and to
dig more tunnels. The US  wasted contributions to the UN system are $6.34 billion +
annually without any support for the US or Israel in UN decisions. The UN now
demands that Israel share its Dome technology with Hamas. This is stupid and
ridiculous. The USA should continue to support Israel in every way, severely
reduce funding to the UN, and in the near future move the UN Headquarters out of the USA.

Look around the world, the UN funded by the USA, supports dictators and terrorists.
