The only positive outcome of Obama’s disastrous handling of the Syrian portfolio is a new and unshakable confirmation in Israel — as well as in Great Britain, Japan, Poland, Honduras and Mexico — that Obama is a deeply unreliable ally.
As Iran’s charm offensive moves forward, it has become clear that Obama is desperate for any kind of deal about its nuclear program. The Iranians know that Obama will go for any deal they offer, no matter how illusory it may be. Witness how eagerly he went for Putin’s deal with Syria, which now guarantees the survival of Assad’s regime and the continued use of WMDs by not only him but every other IslamoNazi in the Middle East, and which has given Iran even more hegemony in Syria, Lebanon, and Gaza.
Thus, Israel, in the crosshairs of an IslamoNazi regime sworn to the genocide of the Jewish people, will obey the 11th Commandment: Thou shalt not be a fool.
Only a fool would trust America under Obama to help stop Iran’s march to nuclear power.
So far, Obama has cozied up to world’s most despotic and ruthless regimes, offering endless overtures for negotiations with Syria, Russia, and the Muslim Brotherhood, while refusing to negotiate with Republicans at home.
Obama promised to transform America fundamentally.
He is doing just that — and more. He is transforming American foreign policy into a kind of soft Bolshevism. By using this tactic, which he learned from his mentor Saul Alinsky, he transforms anti-American actors into “partners” and treats trusted allies with contempt.
During dinner in the sukkah last night, our friends Yossele and Myrna S. pointed us to a fascinating article in the Jerusalem Post about two special units in the IDF’s Electronic Warfare Unit that will play a key role in the Iranian strike that is sure to come.
Nestled deep in the maze of an Israel Air Force base, secretive units form an essential component in any Israeli air strike in enemy territory with air defenses.
Indeed, they would have been an inseparable part of recent air force strikes in Syria, attributed to Israel by foreign media reports, to stop the transfer of sophisticated missiles and air defenses to Hezbollah.
No potential future air campaign in Iran, against the Islamic Republic’s nuclear sites, would be possible without the units.
This is the Electronic Warfare (EW) Section, which is made up of two units.
One operates from the air in specially fitted planes, and the second is ground based.
The two units work in synergy, viewing themselves as part of a greater whole.
They disrupt the enemy’s radar systems, blinding and dazing those being targeted for strikes. They can paralyze enemy communications systems needed to coordinated defenses.
The units also keep fighter jets safe from enemy EW attacks.
When “playing defense,” EW personnel will disrupt the communications of hostile aircraft, such as Hezbollah drones, attempting to intrude upon Israeli airspace, and prevent them from communicating with their ground stations.
The IAF’s airborne Electronic Warfare unit – called Sky Crows – has a new commander, a 39-year-old father of three, who spoke to The Jerusalem Post from his office in early September.
“What is Electronic Warfare? It’s a thought experiment,” he said cryptically.
Hampered by the need to keep the unit’s activities classified, the commander divulged the little that he could.
“This is a war between two sides. Each side works with radars and communications.
The enemy uses these. He wants to protect his skies.”
“We want to protect our skies,” he continued.
“A radar readout is the basis of how we seek our skies.”
“We’re not firing kinetic weapons, but rather, electrons, so that the other side will find it very, very, very difficult to discover our jets,” the commander, a lieutenant-colonel, said.
The world of Electronic Warfare is like an eternal cat and mouse game, he added. “We must stay one step ahead,” he stressed. He warned against underestimating Israel’s enemies, and said that keeping a modest attitude is vital.
