    WHY THE LEAK?

    WHY THE INVITATION AND NOTICE?

    JUST GET THE JOB DONE! OR AS NIKE SAYS: JUST DO IT!

    BETTER YET, MAKE IT LOOK LIKE SOMEONE ELSE DID IT.

  • To Mr. Ross and Permreader:
    Please go to youtube and check out Rafael Industies Spice 250 smart bomb. This is Yisroels equivalent of an altruistic bomb that is quite effective and trys to prevent civilian casualties (what did you expect, Jews invented it!), anyway Yisroel has plenty of these Spice 250’s in its inventory and is constantly upgrading software to make them more effective. If you apply Occams Razor to what Benny Gantz said, I do believe that the easiest explanation for spilling the beans is that Israeli intelligence does not expect this to be a big deal to take these missiles out. Remember , that Yisroel has very effective spy satellites and gets satellite info from USA (which begs the question: WHY IS JONATHAN POLLARD STILL IN PRISON?
