Israel's latest export: Border security fences

The United States and India are both interested in learning about Israel's border security fences according to a report in Monday's Jerusalem Post.
A growing number of countries are flocking to Israel to study border security as the Defense Ministry works to complete the construction of a physical and technological barrier along the Egyptian border.

In August, a delegation from India will arrive to study the various technologies used by the IDF to secure the borders with the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and Egypt, and which could be implemented as part of India’s own fence with Pakistan and Bangladesh.


India is interested in beefing up its border security to prevent future incidents like the Mumbai attacks in 2008.

The Indian press reported Sunday on a tunnel that had been discovered under the border with Pakistan in the contested Kashmir region.

Another country closely following Israel’s decisions on border security is the US, which is building a barrier along its border with Mexico.

The Department of Homeland Security is, for example, testing the ELM-2112 family of persistent ground surveillance radars, developed by Elta Systems, a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries, and used by the IDF to detect intruders before they reach the border.

Five different versions detect individuals at ranges from 300 m. up to 20 km., and vehicles at up to 40 km.

The radars feature four stationary antennas, each covering a 90-degree sector enabling persistent surveillance and tracking over a wide area.
Of course, none of those countries will have to deal with a Supreme Court that knows nothing about security but dictates the fence's route. Nor will they have to worry about the International Court in the Hague, or various bodies of the United Nations getting involved and condemning them.

why don't they consult the Lebanese Judo team at the Olympics?

Ha! But the one country will have to deal with the Obama posse, who have taken down effective checkpoints on drug shipment routes and have ordered that even criminals who are "Dreamers" be set free on the U.S. public. For sure they won't want any pesky fences blocking their cheater voters from getting into the U.S.

I hope Israel is also bringing in people to look at the desalination set ups... There are so many technologies that you can market without having to pal around with Kennedys, bribe Reids, or participating in undermining the U.S. energy supply in the name of green goo slushfunding. So many technologies that uphold the brand you've built, rather than later demolishing it.
