If Israeli leaders are seriously weighing unilateral military action against Iran’s nuclear facilities sometime soon, as many recent media reports have suggested, one of the key factors for them to consider is whether the Home Front is ready for the anticipated fallout. This would likely include Iran and its proxy militias in Lebanon and Gaza firing thousands of missiles and rockets into Israel’s major cities, just as Hezbollah leader Hassan Narallah threatened to do last month.

For several decades now Israel has been working, often in tandem with the US, on building a multi-tiered anti-missile defense shield to prepare for just such a moment. Some of the pieces of that missile shield are in place, but others are still in development. For a better sense of where these efforts are, The Christian Edition recently turned to Uzi Rubin, a former government adviser on national security and the “father” of the Arrow anti-missile system.
