    "The excuse that the IDF failed to activate the anti-missle defenses is laughable on its face. Do you believe the IDF uses an anti-missle defense system which is inoperable when there are aircraft operating in the area? If true, when would you ever be able to activate the system? There are always aircraft operating in a combat zone." My first reaction when I read it..."WHAT?!" That's as lame as excuses come! Why have a sensitive defensive system you can't turn on? You might as well say, "I have this sports car, but I can't use the key to turn it on because there are other cars driving in the area." Stupid! Anti-defensive systems must take into account not only friend as well as foe - there HAS to be some sort of digital signal emission on an IAF operating off this class of ship. How else do you track and sort out "us" vs. "them" on a radar screen? Just another "pants down" moment for the IDF.
