As Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman emphasized, Israel is the first country outside the US to receive this airplane. The F-35 represents the crown jewel of air-power superiority and will therefore be a great contribution to the IDF’s air force.

A recent NASA study shows that the 1998-2012 eastern Mediterranean drought was the area’s worst drought in 900 years. But Israeli innovation has made the Jewish State nearly drought-proof, and Omer Arad came up with the idea of a wearable panic bracelet that lets a diver call his or her partner.

In a move beneficial for Israel's military as well as its economy, Jerusalem is purchasing more F-35 fighters from the US.
