Iron Dome Isn't an Excuse to Let Hamas Off the Hook

October 3, 2021

Israel's Iron Dome anti-missile defense system has been in the news over the past several weeks as radical members of Congress tried to de-fund the project. While Congress ultimately approved a bill to finance the Iron Dome, on this week's Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, Josh says that with or without Iron Dome, Israel must respond harshly to every rocket fired, regardless if the system successfully shoots the projectiles out of the air. He argues that Iron Dome's efficiency should not be a factor for Israel in doing everything possible to prevent Israeli children from having to run to the shelters. The bottom line is that one rocket is one too many, and the terrorists must pay a heavy price, which will deter them from firing.
