1. What gives: aren't we trusting Imaginary Friend to save us?!
tom ,   tel aviv   (11.25.12)
2. How much money?
zelig ,   memphis u.s.a.   (11.25.12)
Kol hakavod to the missile designers of Israel but I'd like to know if anyone is spending ANY money trying to get the Gazans to drop their religion of evil. I agree with Anne Frank.I think that there may yet be one of two Gazans who can be salvaged from the vicious lies they are fed on from birth.
3. congratualtions
alsky ,   toronto   (11.25.12)
keep up the great work !!!!
4. Test it against US installed software control bugs.

5. Defense's great, but is no solution! Read Ynet superb op-ed
Flavio ,   Sao Paulo, Brazil   (11.25.12),7340,L-4304000,00.html The conflict's been around for too long , everybody knows what is needed to end it, including a former Shin Bet commander who is well above and beyond any suspicion of leniency or naivete. Even settlers in Yehuda and Shomron knows that, down the road, there should be two states living side by side, Israel and a palestinian state; I don't like it, it does not seem fair to me too, i'm not a big palestinian fan (quite the opposite, actually), but there is simply no other way. 64 years have gone by, Palestinians will not go away by magic. Enough jesiwh blood has been shed. Something should be done, preferably sooner than later. Itzhak Rabin knew this, I think the vast majority of Israelis will acknowledge this.
6. Another useless toy for Bibbi Aleytzan.
naro ,   jerusalem   (11.25.12)
The only cure for missiles is a strong deterrent which means massive civilian bombings when Israeli civilians are attacked- an eye for an eye. Bibi-the-clown is too scared of losing his lucrative speaking engagements in the USA and Europe ($150K a speech) to do what it takes for real deterrence. All these anti missile systems will be surely defeated by a massive attack of thousands of missiles of every kinds simultaneously. The Arabs and Iranian are laughing at Israel thanks to Bibi-the-Clown.
7. Still you have not learnt lessons Got worse beaten next time
Tayfun_Turkey ,   Istanbul   (11.25.12)
8. A good defense never wins wars..
Shep ,   Memphis, Tn - USA   (11.25.12)
9. #1, imanginary friend trust us to develop
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (11.25.12)
Our so called allies are trusting us to develop a system to prevent ourselves against incoming small missiles as well as large ones. This means that we will have not only the means to precision pin point attacks against enemies and to defend our borders against attacks, but also technology that can be $old to allie$.
10. No magic'll save despodent&defeatist Israel led by Netanyahu
ab   (11.25.12)
11. #1 What are you talking about?
Alex   (11.25.12)
Had to much ecstacy?
12. 1 tom, Jews pray G-D to help ...
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (11.25.12)
SUCCEED their realisations. Help yourself and G-D will help you.
13. Soon: "small violation" of hudna to test the system
Prediction ,   Beersheba   (11.25.12)
All the Gaza envelope hostilities in recent years seem to have had only one purpose: testing and refining the magic wonder weapons that will save us from 1,400 years of Islamic love and guarantee that Oslo "peace" will prevail.
14. Magic Wand
David ,   New York new York   (11.25.12)
My girlfriend has already tested Magic Wand and tells me it works great.
15. We should be developing WMDs to use
jason white ,   afula, israel   (11.25.12)
on the civilians of gaza. We should be testing soon a knesset without bibi, buraq and lieberman. Without hara-dim and arab political parties.
16. magic wand
sid ,   israel   (11.25.12)
Nothing works better than real peace. Toys of war are useless in the long run .
17. war toys
sid ,   israel   (11.25.12)
well said Flavio from Brazil
18. defensive missles
Ethan Schwartz ,   Eilat   (11.25.12)
Without Iron dome in the last campaign, Israel would have had to sweep Gaza from east to west to protect our citizens. Thousands of lives were saved by it.
19. 1 to 1
jojo ,   israel   (11.25.12)
if gazan shoot 1 rocket into Israel, Israel should shoot 1 also into gaza, if gazan shoot 1000 rocket, Israel should shoot 1000 into gaza. beside that Israel had Iron dome, so will less damage, but in other side? you know lah :D
20. Will the next generation of Missile Defense be
Tim ,   Brighton   (11.25.12)
using the ID and MW Response Guidance and Tracking Systems to operate Laser Guns? Are they feasible? Only please ask PERETZ!
21. @1 My Imaginary Friend (aka G-d) is VERY REAL!
so sorry for you that you don't have the same Imaginary Friend as I do! :-/*
22. #7 Tayfun Bro,you need an Hitachi magicwand for boringSunday
Obsessive ,   Turkey   (11.25.12)
Good solution for a better life but destructive for your nerve endings longterm. Ohh My Ahh s***t !!!!!
23. magic wand
spookey ,   birmingham uk   (11.25.12)
never mind magic easy solution rocket with a war head full of anthrax then lob it on hamas
24. only use this against missies not against Hezbollah
zionist forever   (11.25.12)
Iron Dome is expensive with interceptors costing $50,000 a shot but this one cost $1 million a shot. Unlike Iron Dome this is designed to replace the old Hawk short range missile defence system to shoot down things like cruise missiles as well as the medium range things Hezbollah have about 40,000 of that can hit most Israel. Iron Dome is not designed to shoot down those sort of rockets so in a war with Hezbollah its use would be limited. We cannot though use Magic Wand to try protect homes the way we did in Gaza and limit its use to defending strategic targets because at $1 million a shot how many can we afford to have in the country let alone being able to use them to defend homes? We only have about 100 Arrow missiles in the country which are not much more than $1 million each and they are more important than this because they shoot down Iranian ballistic missiles. We need to find cheaper solutions for missile defence because these missiles just get more and more expensive until they get to expensive to be of any practical use.
25. Lack of faith
El gato ,   USA   (11.25.12)
Imaginary "friend"? I assume you are referring to the God who let the Jews out of Egypt and had restored them to the land just as the Bible says? It's losers like you who think they are smarter than people who trust and love God that will cause God to punish Israel.
26. Magic Wand

......IDF: taking America's ragged technology and making it work (as usual)
