Observers said that "the great technological backwardness that Arab countries suffer from is due to the lack of political will" - Getty
[size=45]In light of the Israeli occupation’s continuous promotion of its military, security and technical inventions, the observer hardly finds any indication in the Arab countries of interest in military production, which prompted “Arabi 21” to shed light on this issue, to know the reasons and obstacles that led the Arabs to this situation, and the consequences thereof.[/size]
[size=45]On Wednesday evening, the Israeli occupation army revealed what it considered a “technological breakthrough”, represented in a new system that allows intercepting missiles and mortar shells more easily and operating at “low costs” by means of a “laser”, according to what was reported by the official Israeli “Kan” channel.[/size]
[size=45]The occupation army noted that “the operation of this system is not expected to be a substitute for the Iron Dome system, whose operating costs in 2019 amounted to about one billion shekels, but rather works alongside it and complements it, given its inability to hit and drop missiles in cases where cloudy weather conditions prevail.” or dusty,” explaining that “sources in the Ministry of Security suggested that this system would become operational at the beginning of next year.”[/size]
[size=45]And about his reading of the reality of the military industries in the Arab countries and the obstacles that prevent progress in this field, at a time when the occupation is showing great progress in this industry, Hossam Shaker, a researcher specializing in European and international affairs, said, “It is important to understand, that in occupied Palestine there is a base A huge warship (Israel), which was established by an external will and within the arrangements of the forces of international influence. Without realizing this fact, it is difficult to understand the availability of this huge potential for this base, whether it is; Military, industrial, technical, security, intelligence and more.[/size]
[size=45]Shaker continued: “We are facing a complex based on inherited colonial experiences, with unlimited generous support, on the part of the forces of international influence, specifically from America and European parties, in addition to granting immunity to this military occupation project, to preserve its supremacy so that it is safe from accountability. and punishment.”[/size]
[size=45]The above, according to Shaker, are “the basic objective conditions for understanding the situation in Palestine, and the industrial performance and technical, military and intelligence achievements of this base, and these achievements are a testament to the juice of foreign experiences in addition to interaction in a local settlement environment that produces such.”[/size]
[size=45]Scientific and technical support[/size]
[size=45]He stated that “it is not possible to realize this progress of the occupation in the military industries, security systems and others, without realizing the state of active and open networking without limit, between the settlers of Palestine and the centers of Western influence, specifically universities, specialized institutions, military industrial centers and related systems, with the support they provide to the occupation. Scientific, technical, expertise and materials.[/size]
[size=45]He noted that "the occupation enjoys an exception in the alliance relations with Washington and part of the European powers, and this exception in practice violates international norms in military and security cooperation, in favor of maintaining a state of support and ensuring the superiority of the qualitative occupation at the regional level."[/size]
[size=45]On the other hand, “it is forbidden for the Arab region and its surroundings to achieve a state of strategic balance with the occupation, and this is evident, for example, in the air force, armor, missile force, navy and submarines,” according to Shaker.[/size]
[size=45]And regarding “cases in which military autonomous capabilities have been built relatively independently of external domination, they have been largely targeted and dismantled, or occupied in internal and regional conflicts, and this is clearly evident in the previous Iraqi case, when the Iraqi nuclear reactor was destroyed in 1981 in an Israeli raid.” The siege of Iraq, the waging of wars against it, and the dismantling of its army.[/size]
[size=45]The researcher pointed out that “there are some limited and sub-cases in some Arab countries of achievements in the military industries, but they do not express a state of qualitative progress and development in this aspect, nor a complete state of the occupation in capacity.”[/size]
[size=45]He pointed out that “there is room for acceptance (by the West) of some military and technical industries, but at a certain level, but exceeding this level is considered a transgression of an equation imposed on the region.”[/size]
[size=45]And he indicated that "the imposition of siege and sanctions can be used in the face of some powers and states in the region, and this has been tried with many such as; Iraq, Sudan and Libya and also experimented with the Palestinian resistance forces and others.”[/size]
[size=45]Shaker warned that there is another dimension in Western dealings with Arab countries, because they are “one of the most prominent buyers of arms in the world, and therefore this huge market for arms is supportive of the military industries complex in some countries, especially in the United States and Europe, and arms deals worth hundreds of billions are being pushed into the region.” Arabic".[/size]
[size=45]real strategic power[/size]
[size=45]He pointed out that “it is not in the interest of the influential forces in the world that manufacture weapons, for the Arab countries that have high purchasing power, especially the Gulf states, to turn into a real productive state, because this strikes at the basis of the consumer relationship based on the accumulation of weapons without contributing to building a real strategic power. in regional and international equations.[/size]
[size=45]Theoretically, “it can be imagined that there is a huge opportunity to build an Arab military industry, based on a combination of the financing capacity available to some countries and the scientific and technical available to others, in addition to human abundance and the large market in the Arab region, and this combination could have established an advanced Arab arms industry, but The Arab political will was absent, and with it the joint Arab decision, and the objective conditions that could allow for an independent sovereign decision to be taken were absent.[/size]
[size=45]He continued, "This absence is part of it due to dispersal and the state of fragmentation that exists in the Arab reality, in addition to the harsh or soft external hegemony imposed on the region, which does not give it the freedom to dispose of some sovereign files."[/size]
[size=45]Despite this reality, however, there are “relatively distinct cases in the neighborhood that were able to overcome this dilemma, such as the Turkish and Iranian cases, with the difference between them; One of them is attached to NATO and the other is in the line of this alliance, and with these differences, their case indicates that there is a possibility to have an increasingly self-reliant structure, and to build a strategic project for it.[/size]
[size=45]He stated that "the major Arab industrial projects, in practice, were hit or collapsed on their own, especially the Egyptian experience during the Nasserist era and Iraq during the era of the previous state."[/size]
[size=45]The researcher considered, “It is important to note the link between industrial, technical and practical progress on the one hand, and the progress of military and security industries on the other, and this relationship explains to us why some countries, including Arab countries, lag behind in military industries.”[/size]
[size=45]The clash with the forces of influence[/size]
[size=45]He said: "Certainly, making qualitative progress in the military industries seems to me to be a red line imposed on the region, and everyone is aware of this, including the decision-makers. Any attempt to go with the option of independence in this regard is an invitation to clash with the forces of external influence."[/size]
[size=45]“There is a very important issue,” Shaker explained. And it is that the minds and brains specialized and working in these fields, remained the subject of being chased and subjected to mysterious killings, assassinations, and the polarization of other external industrial forces, and this is another big dilemma.”[/size]
[size=45]He estimated that “the existing objective conditions, in order to establish a structure in this way in the Arab world, have not yet been achieved, and some of them are due to the nature of the modern Arab state, which was based on fragmentation with its characteristics, in addition to maintaining the progress and superiority of the huge military base in Palestine.”[/size]
[size=45]Regarding the ability of the Palestinian resistance in the besieged Gaza Strip to manufacture some local weapons and drones to defend the occupied Palestinian people, the specialist said: “It undoubtedly represents an interesting case, where self-reliance in manufacturing and development in these circumstances, which embarrasses the Arab countries that It has the capabilities and has a margin to act, but it did not, and it was content with relying on external forces for its military equipment.”[/size]
[size=45]At the end of his speech, he stated that "the Arab countries that have stockpiled their weapons, we note that they have a real inability to protect their spaces from attacks targeting them, and to protect their strategic security, knowing that some of them have joint defense agreements and protection contracts with major foreign countries," stressing that "the accumulation of arms And the dependent dependence of the Arab countries on the major countries will not constitute a strategic safety net for them at the moment of truth.[/size]
[size=45]
He noted that "the utilitarian settlement nature of the occupation society, and the generous privileges it grants to settlers from all over the world, made it a great effort by groups of experts, specialists and competencies who were brought out by several environments, including large numbers of Soviet specialists."[/size]
[size=45]Electromagnetic warfare[/size]
[size=45]For his part, a prominent expert in Israeli military and national security affairs, Fadi Nahas, said that “there are no real attempts by the Arab countries to establish a national military industry, and even light weapons are not modernized or built in those countries, and there is talk of establishing nuclear facilities, whether in Egypt or Saudi Arabia, it is not about a local development process, but rather a purchase.”[/size]
[size=45]In his speech, he noted, "Egypt, which is the most Arab country that has a military doctrine and system, does not have a military industry," stressing that "there is no comparison between the military industry of Arab countries and Israel; Which came in the eighth place in the world in terms of strength despite its small size, knowing that the peak of Israel’s arms exports reached in 2017, then decreased slightly in 2018 and the beginning of 2019.”[/size]
[size=45]Al-Nahhas explained, “Israel does not have a political vision, so the military mentality is dominant in all cases, and the Israeli strategic thinking is based on a very important point, which is the factor of time,” noting that “Tel Aviv at some point and by relying on security cooperation and the alliance The United States believes that it will cover the Israeli airspace completely with what is called “electromagnetic warfare,” and this in turn will prevent the entry of missiles, and this is the most important point.”[/size]
[size=45]He pointed out that "Israel's main problem with Iran is related to precision missiles, as Tel Aviv is working to prevent Tehran from sending them to Syria and then Hezbollah in Lebanon," stressing that "there is no concern for Israel about a military balance operation with Arab countries." , or even the possibility that those countries have attempts to find this balance, and in practice this matter has ended since the 1973 war.”[/size]
[size=45]The expert stressed, “What Israel fears from Iran are the precision missiles, not the Iranian nuclear,” considering that “there is nothing for the Arabs and the Palestinian people, but a war of attrition.”[/size]
[size=45]As for the researcher specializing in Israeli affairs, Imad Abu Awad, he attributed “the great technological backwardness that the Arab countries suffer from, due to the lack of political will, noting that the current Arab political regimes are more keen on Israel than Israel itself, because its survival in power is linked to Israel.” “.[/size]
[size=45]Who is the only loser?[/size]
[size=45]In his interview with Arabi 21, Abu Awad added: “This equation pushes the Arab countries not to take risks and go towards owning power, and to rely on imported weapons in accordance with American instructions, in addition to the fact that Arab regimes realize that the trend towards the manufacture of weapons angers Washington and Tel Aviv.”[/size]
[size=45]Abu Awad said, “Although the occupation possessed tremendous technological progress, it was squandered in front of two facts: the first; It may confront minds in the region, including the Palestinian resistance, and the second is; That this great technological progress came at the expense of what is known as the land force on Earth.”[/size]
[size=45]He added, “In many cases, the Israeli military inventions and discoveries contribute to the strength of the Zionist entity, but at the same time it has a decline in other aspects,” questioning the credibility of what is issued in the Israeli media regarding inventions and military power, that “there is an area of ​​lies practiced by Israel, The evidence for this is what is known as the “Iron Dome,” which has been shown to intercept a small part of the missiles.”[/size]
[size=45]On the impact of Arab underdevelopment and Israeli progress in the field of military industries, the researcher stressed that “it leads to an increase in dependency and rapprochement with the occupation, and more Arab transformation into a consumer and importing market for old rotten weapons that will not be able to withstand, neither against Israel nor others.”[/size]
[size=45]He stressed that "this situation will exacerbate the suffering of the Arab countries, and make them an easy prey for Israel and other parties on the regional and international arena, which will leave the Arabs the most important arena for external conflicts and the only loser."[/size]
[size=45]Regarding the occupation’s assessment of the attempts of the resistance in Gaza to own and manufacture weapons, he noted that “the most important problem from the Israeli side is that there is a Palestinian mind that thinks, and therefore as long as it continues to think, it will produce and develop.”[/size]
[size=45]Abu Awwad pointed out that “there is an Israeli conviction that the challenge of the resistance in Gaza has become a strategic challenge that cannot be overlooked and at the same time it is not possible to find the appropriate treatment for it, and therefore the Palestinian resistance has brought the occupation to a point of managing the conflict and not resolving it, while the occupation does not possess A strategy to deal with the resistance, so Tel Aviv sees the danger coming from Gaza as great.[/size]
