Last week I told you about the brilliant success of the Israeli defense company “Rafael”, that won the tender to supply one of the echelons of the Finnish air defense forces. “Rafael” will supply Finland with its advanced missile defense system, the David’s Sling, which provides interception of ballistic missiles, rockets, cruise missiles and UAVs. To remind you, “Rafael” outperformed a number of well-known European and U.S. defense giants in this prestigious tender.

Only a few days later it became known that Germany had asked Israel to advance negotiations on the purchase of the “Arrow 3” system. This exoatmospheric hypersonic anti-missile system is a collaboration project between Israel and the United States (“Israel Aerospace Industries” from Israel and “Boeing” from the United States). Germany had already been interested in this system in the past, but the previous Israeli leadership did not proceed with the deal quickly. Possibly, this was due to pressure from the U.S. administration, which lobbied Germany to purchase exclusively American systems. Now it seems that the new Israeli government of Netanyahu has responded to the German request to speed up progress on the treaty, and the Defense Ministry has indeed intensified contacts with its German counterparts.

In any case, Germany’s confidence in the Israeli technology is evident. It is no coincidence that this country chose it in favor of the most advanced U.S. missile defense and interception systems, such as the existing “Patriot” air defense system, manufactured by the “Raytheon” group of companies or the high-quality THAAD system — a mobile ground-based missile defense system for high-altitude interception of medium-range missiles, manufactured by the American military industrial complex giant “Lockheed Martin”, which has similar capabilities to the “Arrow 3” system.

In other words, according to German experts, the Israeli anti-missile system is more advanced than the American one and can provide Germany with better protection.

We should note that apparently German considerations are not based on economic arguments, because after the Russian invasion of Ukraine Germany officially announced that it would spend an enormous 100 billion euros on the needs of its Armed Forces. In other words, it is clear that Germany is buying the “Arrow 3” system not because it is cheaper, but because it considers it better, more reliable and capable of providing it with better protection against potential Russian threats — ballistic or cruise missile attacks, UAVs, etc.

Besides all of the aforementioned, another huge and powerful world power — India, which has a nuclear arsenal and a population almost as large as China, has chosen the Israeli ship- and ground-based “Barak” SAM system, also developed and manufactured by the “Aerospace Industries”, to serve as the key pillar of its missile defense system, both against the nuclear missiles of Pakistan and China that threaten it and as an air defense system against enemy fighters and for the protection of warships.

You may also remember that in recent years the U.S. has purchased two entire “Iron Dome” batteries to protect its forces stationed in different parts of the world, and these days it is buying from Israel thousands of “Windbreaker” systems, active tank protection for its “Abrams” tanks and “Bradley” APCs.

To sum up: Israel continues to strengthen its position as the world’s leading manufacturer of defense goods and systems designed to protect both civilians and combat units, allowing for quick and serious decisions with few casualties and providing effective, as far as possible in a combat environment, security for the civilian rear.

On the spiritual and inner side, the closer we get to the Redemption, the greater and deeper becomes the comprehension of the Almighty’s truth that Israel is the treasure of the world, because it is both a spiritual and physical “shield” — for all mankind!
