Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Speech to AIPAC 2011 | UNCOVERAGE.net: "Congress for providing Israel with vital assistance so that Israel can
defend itself by itself. I want to thank you all for supporting the Iron
Dome missile defense system. A few weeks ago, Hamas terrorists in Gaza
fired eight rockets at our cities, at Ashkelon and Beer Sheva. Now, these
rockets never reached their targets. Iron Dome intercepted them in midair.
For the first time, a missile defense system worked in combat. That’s a
precedent in military history. And I want to say thank you, America."
