Ali Oops: Electronic Intifada's Ali Abunimah shows his ignorance again

From the  Electronic Intifada's Ali Abunimah:  Is Ali all atwitter because Israel's Arrow missile defense system has the potential to save Israeli lives?

 Electronic Intifada's Ali Abunimah shows his ignorance

What Ali describes as "teaching hate and violence"  at Israel Science Day in Rabin Square is in reality the Arrow Weapon System - Israel's national missile defense system.  The  Arrow defense system  is designed to track  and disable into missiles above the earth's atmosphere, high enough to disable chemical, biological or nuclear warheads safely.  Arrow is designed to save lives, Ali.  You run a website about the Middle East.  Its time to get up to speed on some basic facts.

If Ali Abunimah  really cared about teaching "hate and violence", you'd think he'd have said something about the latest public art in Gaza.

Its a life-size model of a large  M75 rocket with a range of up to 75 miles. These rockets were launched at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem during Operation Pillar of Defense in November 2012.

 The words of peace that accompanied this fine bit of Palestinians public art:

“Hamas managed to take the battle to the heart of the Zionist entity (Israel) after developing its rocket system, succeeding where many Arab armies had failed.”
