Sharing some thoughts as Israeli Entrepreneur (and about Iron Dome)

Hello everybody 

I’m back in Israel after a two weeks business trip in China, and I would like to share my thoughts regarding the sensitive situation in Israel nowadays. 

As an Israeli and as entrepreneur who is active all across the world (and mainly in China), I feel that I should approach this matter. 

I will not be the first one to say that we are dealing on a daily bases with difficult situations, and we have to be wise and clever to be strong and determined (protecting our country and our families and friends) in one side and be sensitive and flexible on the other side 

So I’m in Beijing, having lunch with 12 of my colleagues, we are enjoying ourselves, talking business…and….

My wife suddenly calls me and tells me about the sirens going on and on in our streets, 0830 Israel time …

Its early morning in Israel, she is rushing with our kids to the kindergarten, but suddenly missiles flying and exploding (nor the enemy missiles but our ” Iron Dome ” missiles who hit the enemy missiles) above her head.

 I’m far away and there is nothing I can do or say to make it better.

My little daughter (almost 4 years old) feels my despair, and says to me over the phone – “Daddy, don’t worry, I’m not afraid of missiles!!”, as if she’s protected as she should be. 

The reality that we are living in, cannot be described in words, as if there are not enough words in our language.

I’m certain that Israel reacts to our neighbors actions, in the most tolerant way. I’m confident that every other nation would react in a much more severe manner.

 The people of Israel as well as me, my wife and kids – are calm.

Life is Israel has its own routine, and life goes on, maybe just a bit slower.

I feel obligated to say that the reason for us being calm is thanks to the Israeli innovative technology.

I was able to stay in China for the rest of my trip, even when I was worried for the safety of my family, because of our own excellent technology; the “Iron Dome”.

The Iron Dome is a remarkable example to the great things we do here in Israel. 

What is the Iron Dome?

A mobile all-weather air defense system, developed by “Rafael”, an Israeli company that excels in Advanced Defense Systems.

The system is designed to intercept and destroy short-range rockets and artillery shells fired from distances of 4 kilometers to 70 kilometers.

The system successfully intercepted the Grad rocket launches from Gaza. The “Jerusalem Post” once reported that the system shot down 90% of rockets launched from Gaza, which would have landed in populated areas.

I strongly believe that the Iron Dome is the most-effective, most-tested missile shield the world has ever seen.

Companies such as “Refael”, “Alta”, the “Air Force Industry”, “Elbit” and more, continues to develop high efficiency systems.

Today, these 4 companies are the leading companies in the world in the fields of development and manufacturing missiles against missiles systems, radar systems, control and monitoring systems and more. 

I would like to conclude with saying that I’m a man of peace. I’m certain that our technology in this field of expertise comes as a result of our necessity to survive. I wish that in the future, we won’t need technologies to live a peaceful life, and we could just live in peace.
