UAE Announces $10Bn Investment Fund For Israel, To Develop Joint Air Defense System

On March 11th, the UAE announced a $10 billion fund for investments in Israel.

This was decided, following a “constructive phone call” between Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Through the fund, the UAE will invest in and alongside Israel across sectors including energy, manufacturing, water, space, healthcare and agri-tech.

The investment fund will support development initiatives to promote regional economic cooperation between the two countries. Fund allocations will derive from government and private sector institutions.

“This initiative is an integral part of the historic peace accord signed by the UAE and Israel with the United States’ support, and demonstrates the benefits of peace by improving the lives of the region’s peoples. It is a manifestation of the new spirit of friendship and cooperation between the three countries, as well their common will to advance the region,” Gulf News praised the progress.

Notably, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) announced plans to jointly develop an advanced anti-drone missile system with the United Arab Emirates’ state-owned weapons maker EDGE.

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) said in a statement that the companies will work together to build the system in order “to detect, identify, classify, and intercept a broad range of threats.”

IAI said the Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System (C-UAS) will include soft kill solutions such as electronic jamming and cyber takeovers, and hard kill capabilities such as guns, missiles, electromagnetics and lasers, as well as advanced command and control.

“The C-UAS is fully autonomous requiring no to limited human” supervision, the major Israeli aerospace company said.

“A series of countermeasures, ranging from jamming to drone destruction, will be offered based on the level of threat and the customer’s targeted operating environment,” the statement added.

IAI further asserted that the project would have “wider ranging benefits for the [Middle East and North Africa] region and beyond.”

Boaz Levy, president and CEO of IAI, welcomed the project as “a stepping-stone for further business and strategic alliances between” Tel Aviv and Abu Dhabi.

Faisal al-Bannai, CEO and Managing Director of EDGE, said the project is set to strengthen the UAE’s advanced technology portfolio and partnerships in the region, adding that the deal is “in line” with the recently brokered normalization accords.

“We believe that this collaboration will help both companies through the transfer of knowledge and sharing of capabilities,” Bannai said.

Support for Palestinians from the side of the UAE is all but forfeit. Israeli Channel 12 television network, citing the Center for Near East Policy Research, reported on February 5 that while the UAE funded the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) $53 million and $51 million in 2018 and 2019 respectively, it provided the agency with a mere $1 million in 2020, as such support is decreasing rapidly.

Frankly, this was quite expected as the west is now bankrupt and the Wahhabi Arab corrupt Sheikhdoms are the last Zionist cash donkeys left. The Zionists will soon turn these dumb corrupt Wahhabis into beggars and that serves them right. $10 billion is just the start. Imagine what even one billion would have done for the Palestinians or other poor Arabs.

Jens Holm

Haha. Compared to who and what :) Deep smile form here.

Do we have to support Liras in stead, rials, shekels or what.

I bet a dirham for You are wrong. I see no collapse here.

Leif Oskar Zetterstrøm

Poor Arabs will probably spend the money on building more mosques.

Jimmy Jim

INVEST IN OVENS!

Ahson

Is there some official link here or do I use some special search engines?

Frank

Bloomberg Jew news and Wahabbi Gulf news have confirmed this.

Ahson

Frankie, gimme the link please!

Ahson

Thank you.

Frank

Times of Pisrael and Bloomberg and al Arabiya also have the same story.

Ahson

I know Frankie……I know…..they’s goin thru their colonization. Iran will act soon and it will be all over. UAE was a monkey outpost for Iran only a 100 years ago.

Frank

The British created this fake Wahhabi corrupt pimpdom in 1971 exactly for this purpose of supporting colonialism and Zionism. From a military point of view a simple base bleed artillery shell fired from Abu Musa can shut the whole UAE down. The Zionists are ripping these Wahhabi lizard eaters.

Ahson

yeah, we can just shake our heads in disbelief. Iran gets pissed enough and its literally all over for the UAE. It’ll be over in less than 24hrs if Iran decided to undo them. So far though there is no urgency…..not yet!

Just Me

One missile at Dubai airport and that is the end of the Wahhabi Bedouins.

Ashok Varma

80% of UAE population is either Asian slave labour or highly paid third rate con men from the west pretending to be experts, and if even a minor military operation breaks out there will be an exodus and pandemonium in the all of the Sheikhdoms. These stupid puppet regimes are on shifting sands.

Ahson

So far its a $20 odd billion trade, largely one way, holding Iran’s hand. However if that ends, then the game is up.

tzatz

‘Wishing and Hoping’. was a hit song in the ‘60’s by Dusty Springfield … eh?

IaI also declared Mou(Memorandum of Understanding) with Uae, they will develop systems to guard against UAVs and small drones.

johnny rotten

Inevitable, the masks begin to fall, unequivocal sign of a global earthquake, the West is collapsing and therefore useless to maintain the fiction about the artificial statehood of the so-called kingdoms of the gulf, after all it is well known that they are nothing other than Anglo-Americans intelligence operations [in the service of Zion of course], now they need all the resources they can and the theater becomes a useless and cumbersome tinsel.

Jens Holm

Muich as You already for years has been collapsed Yourself

So … how many years should I put YOU down for?

Yes but there are no Anglo-Americans intelligence operations, they to are a fiction about the artificial statehood of what was once called the west again it is well known that they are nothing other than conquered slaves of the racist supremacist global Jewish satanic slave empire dictatorship and now the zio empire needs all the resources they can get as their slave hosts collapse leaving nothing for the Jewish slave masters to harvestm a collapse caused by the Zios destroying their own Goyim host slaves, so the theater of hiding the way things really are becomes a useless and cumbersome tinsel.

Just Me

These are all desperate Zionist criminals pipe dreams, knowing how stupid the Wahhabi Arabs are, nothing will happen. Saudis and UAE pay billions to western consultants to make fancy plans but look at the shithole desert of Dubai, besides ugly glass buildings by slave labor what does it produce?

Condor

Having worked with the Persian Gulf Arabs, nothing will come out of these lofty announcements. They just make grandiose plans and nothing ever eventuates. The Jews have been ogling Arab petro-dollars for a long time and now using the Iran bogeyman is just another typical Jew scam. Not much hope though.

JIMI JAMES

I remmembered the bullish 41 billion gas pipe from russias back yard then at a stage the cia tried to block turkstream/russia project,i stated got no chance (period) Cursed them to hell where their medias only belong,and ever since proved yet again,Truth is the power,not cia/soros/gulen/eu-epp corporate lgbtq speculative disordinance,I see this hype much the same!

Israel needs to sort out their (nazi problem) instead of just sniffing up one anothers asses like only dogs do in circles,see towards the peace instead:

verner

probably better for the sheikdoms to buy a supply of diapers and build safe spaces for themselves and their daughters and not waste their cash on the jews in palestine who, as is well known, will steal 55% for their own purse and use the remaining 45 pct for the agreed purpose with the twist that the beneficial use will be 75 pct in favour of the jews and the balance 25 pct possibly beneficial to the sheikdoms – they are screwed, jewishly fucked.

tzatz

Relatively harmless drivel …

Potato Man

Zion loot EU, US and sell their weapons, tanks, etc under their name for profit to Wahhabi morons.
UAE saw how fuked SA is getting and running to Zion for help (wrong fuking more morons – bagging for help from Zion good more Wahhabi morons – Zion find a new goat to fuk and loot) UAE as British-Yankees State now gonna be Zion.
Fun fact, no-one hit Zion with good missile or drones, even homemade Gaza rockets and balloons fuk Zion which have such small “state”. Even the Zion say the Iron dome is fuking stupid to have…they never say why but they sure blame it on “cost”.

Just Me

My bold prediction, the Zionist criminals will fleece the UAE pimps to bankruptcy in less than a decade, if they last that long.

Jens Holm

Thats no predition but a hope.

tzatz

Only 10?

BUT that means Israel will still exist for 10 more years … I’m trying to see who wins the lottery … I got u you up down for 10 years? Or … ?

Britain to Cut F-35 Orders By 65% Amid Economic Crisis – Reports
Militarywatchmagazine.

It appears the British government is getting smarter while Jews and UAE are stacking their hands with F35 junk.
Why does not IAF run a computer stimulation how their F35 and F15 will fare against Russian Suk 30 and 35?

PS: UAE and Israel will have to fork over one billion per plane for the next 30 years for upkeep and maintenance issues.

tzatz

Britain ain’t got the Do-Re-Mi … hello?

The F-35 is unmatched in the Middle East … besides whose flying Suk 30 and 35’s? lol

Russians ?

C’mon man Russian pilots were downed by IAF pilots during the Egyptian ‘War of Attrition’ … you want more?

Clearly you know the IAF is unmatched in the air? Peerless …

next

Jesus

IAF will take heavy losses against a capable enemy, as the war of 1973 proved in Sinai. IAF lost about 70 planes including the latest and greatest F4.

Arch Bungle

I’d like to see the IAF fight without American planes and use it’s own home grown ones instead.

Even Iran has an indigenous fighter by now.

Jesus

Yes it does, Israel and US laughs at it, when they get to deal with them, Sequeh and Kowsar will attack like bees and sting effectively……upgraded F-5 are still capable today.
Israel did a replica of the Mirage 5 aka Kfir …..they did not have much confidence in it.
They build the Lavi which required large expenditure to produce with similar capabilities as the F16, they decided to buy off the shelf F16 instead of the indigenous Lavi.

Jesus

Yes, F35 is a POS against Russian active EW, Suk 30 and 35.
If Putin was not in the lead, Russian MOD would have shot down many F16s.

tzatz

ROTFLMAO

If Putin wasn’t in the lead? lol

Can you do 15 minutes of standup?

Next ….. NATO
Next ….. parasitic Gulf states.

Ah … so you’re really trying standup?

C’mon Man!

Jesus

FYI Algeria deploys Suk 30 -35 and they recently signed for 14 Suk57, Egypt has Rafale and 25 Suk 35 ordered, possibly Suk 57 in the near future…..

Next,
Why does not Israel do a war stimulation involving Adir and Suk 30 & 35?

Next,
While they were do a stimulation between Adir, F15 and Suk 35 and 57?

Next
They should do a stimulation involving S300 V 4 (Egyptian) and S400 (Algerian) against Adir and F15?
Next they should do a stimulation involving Iron Dome and David Sling against the Fatheh missile series and the rest of the assortment of missiles Hezbollah has at its disposal.

Next
They should do a stimulation involving Nadir and “bird strikes”?

Next

Do you want more comparisons ?

tzatz

Comparisons are for diaper training Arabs / Muslims … the IAF practices what it preaches …

As for the Israeli air defences?

When have they been breached now that the 4 tier defenses are in place? Iron Dome is doing great work and the others haven’t been tested by Iran or Hezbollah?

You’re talking a lot for an Iranian whose own offensive and defensive systems are lacking … hello?

100’s of missions over Syria without ANY retaliation … except once … and the ‘hurt’ afterwards by the IAF shut the mouth of Soleimani who was in charge … eh?

Your crew will suffer … inshallah

Jesus

Quit deluding yourself, Israeli air defenses are a reflection of US air defenses….
Which is not much. With the decline of US, Israel will parallel as well, US being incapable of producing cutting edge weaponry.

tzatz

Foolish idea … the Jews/ Zionists/ Israelis are leading the way in ALL fields in technology …

It’s in AI … that the future will be secured … nuff said

Jesus

Pathetic dreams, you will find out…..just like the Americans you make yourself feel good by lying or believing a lie.

Your pathetic dreams will be flushed down the toilet before your eyes …

f35 is pos against ant poor barstard whom gets to fly them cia flying coffins:

Condor

F-35 is a $2 trillion failure and mostly grounded. Teenagers should not be allowed to post.

JIMI JAMES

COMFIRMED BY RAAF:

An F-35 pilot says
the Joint Strike Fighter’s cockpit is a technological wonder, using
helmet-mounted displays, voice recognition tech, and touchscreens.

Unfortunately, while all of those features sound great in theory, in practice, they come up short.

At least one of the features is so useless, the pilot doesn’t know anyone who actually uses it.

The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter is probably the most advanced fighter jet flying today. The F-35, a.k.a. the “Panther,”
is the first jet to use a number of new technologies designed to make
it the most lethal and survivable warplane around. The problem? Some of
those bells and whistles have landed with a resounding thud.

In an interview with the excellent aviation magazine Hush-Kit,
an anonymous Panther pilot describes the F-35’s cockpit and interface
system. The pilot says the cockpit itself is “beautiful,” full of
screens that allow you to bring up an incredible amount of information
about the fighter with just a few finger swipes, and customize the data
to tailor it for the particular mission.

The F-35 is the first to use touchscreen
technology. Unlike switches, which take up permanent cockpit space,
touchscreens allow the same LCD screen space to be instantly repurposed.
One minute, a display could be used to pull up data on an aircraft’s
fuel reserves, and the next, it could help target an enemy position on a
mountainside. That goes a long way toward simplifying the cockpit and
not overwhelming a pilot with wall-to-wall physical switches, dials, and
single-use displays.

But the problem with touchscreens, the pilot explains, is a lack of tactile feedback.
Switches have a nice, satisfying click that instantaneously lets the
user know they were successfully flipped. Almost everyone with a
smartphone has touched a virtual button on a touchscreen, expected a
result … and then nothing happens. The anonymous pilot reports failing to get a result from a touchscreen about 20 percent of the time:

At present I am pressing the
wrong part of the screen about 20 [percent] of the time in flight due to
either mis-identification, or more commonly by my finger getting
jostled around in turbulence or under G. One of the biggest drawbacks is
that you can’t brace your hand against anything whilst typing—think how
much easier it is to type on a smartphone with your thumbs versus
trying to stab at a virtual keyboard on a large tablet with just your
index finger.

Other problems include the $400,000 custom-fitted “magic helmet”, which replaces the heads-up display (HUD) as well as sensor displays. The
F-35 pilot believes old-fashioned HUDs are superior due to their
ability to better display information without the need to “shrink” it to
fit the helmet’s field of view. The voice recognition feature also apparently goes completely unused:

Voice input is another feature of
the jet, but not one I have found to be useful. It may work well on the
ground in a test rig, but under G in flight it’s not something I have
found to work consistently enough to rely on. I haven’t met anyone who
uses it.

tzatz

2 squadrons of F-35 Adir custom-made for Israel with unique capabilities … that’s 50 planes that are at the ‘top’ of the pyramid

JIMI JAMES

Britain is going by factual,not so promising reports by raaf in regards to f35s,
not surprised one but,chances are likely follow their own path seens britain were a capable aviation nation (before they bent over for corporate eu-epp)

Jesus

If they need more aircraft that should by the Typhoon which showed good capabilities against F22.

tzatz

No one says that Iron Dome doesn’t work … hello? Except for y’all … eh?

The US Army just bought 2 for their own needs … looks as if the UAE wants their own and share in the profits of selling the technology around the World … eh?

Sounds to me like a business plan …

You’re just jealous … again

Very good, many israelis have already come to vist the UAE and the numbers will only grow once NATBAG will be fully reopened.

LOL and stealing from hotel rooms.

Israeli tourists visiting the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have been stealing items from hotel rooms in Dubai. The UAE and Israel agreed to establish full diplomatic, cultural,
and commercial relations following the signing of the controversial
agreements on the 15th of September at the White House.

Free man

The fruit of peace.
When the mullahs regime falls, Israel and Iran will once again become allies . And we will read about collaborations between these two wise peoples.

Arch Bungle

two wise peoples

LOL! You funny clown.

There is only one wise people there of the two you speak of.

One has brought only foolishness and genital mutilation to mankind.

The other has contributed wisdom to humankind throughout it’s history.

tzatz

Aren’t YOU being coy …. LMAO

Free man

Why do you disrespect the Iranian people like that?
Ignorant troll.
(I hope SF doesn’t delete this post as well).

Arch Bungle

Clearly that went over your low iq head.

Let me state it explicitly: The Persian collective over it’s 5000 years recorded history has contributed more wisdom and science to humankind than the jews can ever hope to.

In the same period of time the jews have done nothing but contribute a barbaric and primitive religion (and it’s offshoots) and become famous for genital mutilation.

There, that clear enough for you?

Emad Irani

is it a 43 years dream again? Come on oskol, every year is the last year of IRI according to you hahaha. Beside that Iran and Israhell have a problem since 2500 years

Free man

“..Iran and Israhell have a problem since 2500 years”- So that’s what your Islamists are telling you.
LOL.

Arch Bungle

israhell was destroyed 2000 years ago by my Roman ancestors.

The problem you have now is with the Anglo-Saxons and fake european jews pretending to be hebrews.

Just Me

You are a desperate liar WANKER pal, get over it.

Free man

Understanding reality is too hard for you guys, too bad.

Arch Bungle

You talk about ‘reality’ but all you do is fantasize all day:

When the mullahs regime falls, Israel and Iran will once again become allies

Do you think ordinary Iranians will forget how the jews starved and embargoed them for 40 years?

You’re a complete moron.

Sukhoi

That does not surprise those that know the zionism run all muslim-sunni countries. That “peace” agreements between Israel and USA, Saudi Arabia and others are only a formalization of a de-facto reality. Are not peace deals, but they are siding together for what seems to be the preparation for a big war in the region, possibly sparking the third world war.

Jens Holm

There is no opposition to them and for the atter us. I only see dwarfs and the women already prepared dressed in tents.

Jens Holm

It really makes me laugh the same morons I mainly dont like jump up and down and deny to understand, they run nothing.

JIMI JAMES

Truth’s power,not they nwo/failed puppet slaves of the slaves,My governance will fk em too:
So it came to pass,how to rule? Do not vote for anyone unworthy like cia sheepie fkwits do:

Jens Holm

I do vote 3 ways. 1) for local governess, 2) for state governes and 3 for elected memebers to EU.

Both EU and Our Goverment of course has relations to CIÁ. It would be strange if we had not. They are a part of Our powerbase by trade as well as Nato and other things.

…And it pays off well.

Well start working. Fogging is a descent need and a job for many helpers to it. Here we pay for it.

Arch Bungle

The leaders of the Gulf Arab world must all have been caught up in Epstein’s paedophilia ring by now, to have become so docile and obedient.

You will see that not only are they ‘making deals’ with the jews, but they will hand over their kingdoms and their people’s fates to the Gog of Magog.

tzatz

It’s inevitable … eh? lol

Just Me

These deals never work out as the ordinary people in the streets hate the Jews. Look at Egypt and Jordan where public opinion is over 97% against the Zionists and not a dollar has been invested.

World_Eye

Idiocy $10bn will buy you very sophisticated few batieries of S-400, steel sky protected from flys. But LMAO go give it to Israhell to make you some air dome defense. Puff.
