In the wake of the great success of the Iron Dome anti-missile system, which was able to intercept many of the rockets fired from Gaza at populated areas during Operation Pillar of Defense, Israel is now pushing ahead with the development of Magic Wand, which is supposed to be able to intercept short-range and medium-range rockets.
According to a report in the Boston Globe on Saturday, Israel will test the system in the Negev in the coming days.
Magic Wand, the report said, is being developed by the Israeli Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. in cooperation with the American company Raytheon Co.

Any enemy, that is allowed to have a King’s X line, is undefeatable. Bibi is a bluffer and they know it.
Eventually the West is going to have to nuke Mecca and a few other “holy” cities. We should do what the Israelis do: Drop leaflets ahead of time.
Thanks Nachum. Mostly a self-ping. Some sidebars:
