    I've always wondered why a few Israeli passenger jets aren't downed by anti-aircraft missiles, a little poetic justice for Israel'e role in 9-11, as well as general blowback for Israel's regional hostilities.

    Maybe Muslims just aren't as militant as their reputation suggests. Take Iran, they'll just sit there, talking tough and doing nothing. Israel will eventually bomb, and instead of Iran doing anything back, Iran will just insist that no real harm was done. Come on Iran, get some AA into the occupied territory.

    And it does not appear they are really a threat against Israeli or western military aircraft. You always have to assume the opponent has capabilities.

    I don't know. How do you know where they're pointed, given that Israel doesn't even acknowledge they possess them?

    I'm sure of that. Civilian aircraft in Israel probably fly at high altitudes and otherwise have countermeasures. And, any AA had by Libyans and such would be second-rate.

    Libya is a majority Muslim country whose stance regarding Israel has been pretty clear. That's where I expected they were before Gaddafi was dealt down. That Libya now finds a faster pace in the advanced weaponry aquisition is not surprising either since the US has stepped back and Iran/Turkey/Russia/China/NK are highly active in the Middle Eastern shipping routes.

    That Libya would would be positioning at Israel doesn't surprise me at all. You can be certain that Israel has Libya under a watchful eye. :thup:
