This is ironic in the extreme. While the Israelis are developing technology that the Brits are using to protect themselves, the situation is increasingly precarious for Jews in the UK. And that isn’t the fault of the “far-right,” it’s the fault of Muslim migrants. Even worse, this rising Jew-hatred is welcome among the British left. Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the UK’s Labour party, was discovered to be a member of not one, but two anti-Semitic Facebook groups. His Labour party has a long history of Jew-hatred. Corbyn has said that ISIS supporters should not be prosecuted for “expressing a political point of view.” A leading Corbyn activist caused outrage after claiming that Islamic terrorists are “freedom fighters.”
“Israeli anti-Drone Technology Helps Reopen London’s Gatwick Airport,” United With Israel, December 23, 2018:
The British Army used a cutting-edge Israeli-developed anti-drone system to defeat the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) that brought about the 36-hour shutdown of the Gatwick Airport and the cancellation of some 750 flights last week.
The UK’s Daily Mail reported Friday that the British Army bought six Drone Dome systems for £15.8 million in 2018, and the technology is used by the Army in Syria and Iraq to take down UAVs flown by the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group.
Police tried to use the technology they had in their possession, which proved useless because the drone used at Gatwick was either hacked or an advanced drone, and therefore the Army’s Drone Dome system made by Israel’s Rafael was called in.
“Very pleased to see Israeli technology being used at Gatwick airport to make flights possible again,” tweeted Lord Eric Pickles.
“GOOD news for travelers, BAD news for those peddling a boycott of Israeli goods,” he added.
Rafael, an Israeli defense technology company, describes the system as “designed to provide effective airspace defense against hostile drones used by terrorists to perform aerial attacks, collect intelligence, and other intimidating activities.”…
