Iron Dome defense system gets new backer: Barack Obama

The budgetary difficulty that has been delaying Israel’s armament with the anti-missile defense system Iron Dome has apparently been resolved. The Pentagon has issued a message to Israel’s Defense Ministry that U.S. President Barack Obama has approved the transfer of special assistance totaling $205 million (just under NIS 800 million) for the purchase of more than ten Iron Dome batteries.

It’s good to get the occassional good news from Israel. One wonders if our President was influenced by the same news items that we blogged about yesterday.

Shalom.
