Israel’s Merkava Mark IV tank has been crowned one of the five deadliest tanks in the world by the conservative American magazine the National Interest, alongside Russia’s T40 and the American M1 Abrams.

Conceived by Maj.-Gen. Israel Tal following the Yom Kippur War, the Merkava is the IDF’s first indigenous main battle tank. The first Merkava I entered service in 1978 and saw its premiere action in the First Lebanon War in 1982.

The Merkava is also one of the first armored vehicles to be equipped with the Trophy Active Protection System (APS), the only fully operational and combat-proven APS against anti-tank guided missiles in the world.

    What good does it do when the so-called “leadership” is made up of a bunch of bimmies kowtowing to the enemy, providing them with tons of cement daily for their terror tunnels, selling Yidden enemy produce while local farmers are poverty-stricken, and putting millions of Yidden in sakana hourly.

    When their agenda will be shleimus haTorah, Shleimus ha’am and Shleimus ha’aretz the bragging will be in place.

    • The real issue is the Judenrat; Arabs are just a tool. If there were no Arabs, the Judenrat would have imported some other violent Jew-haters.
