Almost one third of Israels F16′s are the modern F16I version, unique to Israel , a lengthened long range version packed with new Israeli designed & made electronics including Anti Missile technology. Likewise the older standard F16A’s B’s & C’s have all been upgraded with Israeli made electronics & weapons, Ditto for the F15′s, the newer ones are the unique to Israel F15I an improved varriant of the advanced F15E

FARC in Columbia, ETA in Europe and various other “non state actors” several of whom would be more than happy to sell them to HAMAS, have these Man Portable Air Defense Systems in their arsenal.
.
Not to mention that Iran is quite happy to sponsor various insurgencies (just like any other country in the world – keeping it bias free for once)
.
Iran made a point of not supplying the insurgents in sponsored in Iraq with MANPADS because it knew that would be a step too far for the Americans, It’s plan then was to have the Americans harrasas and hindered, not to have itself open to a politically viable attack from the states.
.
Israel however has said many times that it planned to attack Iran already, several leaked documents which the Iranians would have been aware of showed that Israel actually planned an initial strike but was only held back by opposition from both the EU, (which they ignored) and the US (which they of course listened to).
.
Therefore logic would dictate that it is no longer in Iran’s interests to withhold MANPAD technology from the resistance movement in Palestine (or the insurgency in israel – bias free, take your pick).
.
F16′s are fucking ancient, and not exactly hard to bring down.
And of course the Americans and Europeans are not overly worried about this because we now use a platform that is much more advanced (5th generation) Giving Iran the ability to supply HAMAS with MANPADS that while a threat to the israeli’s, are no threat to the EU or to the US. which means of course that we don’t really give a shit.

Al Qaeda shooting at a Syrian Air Force target. Obviously Hamas TV has done a Photoshop job on the video & tried to pass it off as a Hamas team firing the missile. No Israeli planes or helicopters have been shot down & there have not been any reports of Hamas firing such missiles at our planes.
BTW the song is not an original, it is a remake of the 1991 Gulf War – ” Udrub, Udrub, Ya Saddam – send another Scud on Tel Aviv ” song that the Palestinians in Gaza & the West Bank sang whilst dancing in the streets when Scud missiles hit Tel Aviv
