One of the key planks to billionaire businessman Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy is his promise to build a wall to stop the flood of illegal immigration and other crimes taking place along our nation’s southern border.
Critics have slammed the idea as being too expensive and unworkable, with many snidely remarking that the drug and human traffickers traversing across our border will simply tunnel underneath the wall to defeat it.
Trump and his supporters need only point to Israel to counter that critique, as a new, high-tech, anti-tunnel system to complement a wall is currently being developed in a joint effort by nearly 100 Israeli companies and the Israeli and U.S. governments, with a little help from American taxpayers, according to Israel 21c.
“The search for tunnels is at the top of our priority list … and we will not spare any efforts,” declared Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, who had just announced the recent discovery of a new concrete-lined tunnel into Israel from Gaza.

Though much of the specific details are being kept under wraps for now, the project is being referred to as an “underground Iron Dome” that can help prevent terrorist attacks and criminal activity in Israel, as well as the U.S.
It is believed that the new anti-tunnel system utilizes dozens of special sensors that feed information into a central system for analysis, which can then identify the exact location and length of a tunnel.
“Dealing with the phenomenon of tunnels is very complex, and the state of Israel is a world leader in this field,” stated Ya’alon. “This battle demands from us persistence, creativity, and also responsibility and good judgment.”
The new anti-tunnel technologies will be part of what is essentially a counter-tunnel barrier that Israel is implementing, which also includes “a state-of-the-art fence, complete with sensors, observation balloons, see-shoot systems, and intelligence gathering measures, as well as an underground wall.”
If elected president, Donald Trump has promised to secure the southern border of the U.S. Making use of this new cutting-edge technology from Israel would be an excellent first step towards making that goal a reality.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter to spread the word that Israel has developed new anti-tunnel technologies that would work well to help secure America’s southern border from illegal immigrants, drug traffickers and terrorists.
