Israel’s Amos 17 satellite successfully launched by SpaceX

The Amos 17 communications satellite was boosted by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida, early Wednesday. The successful launch into orbit over the Africa continent came three years after Amos 6 was destroyed by an explosion on the Falcon launch pad. This time, SpaceX was extra careful and delayed the launch of Amos 17 for three days over a suspected malfunction in the rocket engines.

DEBKAfile: This communications satellite will supply Israel’s intelligence services with data on Iran after a three-year gap during which they made do with makeshift technical devices.

The $250m satellite built by Boeing is now operating autonomously and due to reach a point 36,000km above the earth’s surface in 11 days.

    Now it will be much easier to get to and record all Khamenei and Rouhani thoughts.

    I heard they have smarted up a little and have thin aluminum foil kippah under their turbans, for shielding purposes. Not a chance to escape this time, because the new satellite has next generation detectors, infinitely more sensible.

    The only escape – lobotomy.

      The Eyes on Iran Regime just Increased, with added Long Ears, and Mossod’s Spies! Meanwhile, Ayatollah Regime Personal Sanctions Preventing Persian’s People Oil Profits Financial Resources for IRGC’s Hostile Provocative Actions. The Global Moral Sense require this Unholy Shiia Regime to Abandons Exportation of Arms, Aspirations of Nuclear Weapons, ICBMs, & Promoting Mideast Foreign Belligerent Conflicts of Terrorism. These Iranians Evil Doers Sets Fires in other Nations causing Death & Destruction & then Demand Credit claiming they are spreading Islam a Religion of Peace? These are Thugs Not Islamic Religious Leaders!

      You laugh, but the microwave “Voice of God” tech is real, and the aluminium foil actually does work. I prefer carbon fiber now because it takes paint better and you can shape it smoothly, like a skateboard helmet. Side benefit: 5G opaque too.

        However, latency becomes significant – about 250ms for a trip from the ground-based brain under surveillance to the satellite and back to the Israel’s ground-based antenna. And more than double when trying to control the subject.

        It is very challenging to inject back into the brain right thoughts at the right time, especially when he’s giving orders or indications, because for an (uncontrolled) observer he would appear like heavily babbling or contradicting and screaming at himself.

    Amos 6

    1. Woe to those who are at ease in Sion and to those who are secure in the mountain of Samaria, those called the [red]first of the nations, and the house of Israel has come to them.

    In the chant of Balaam at Numbers, 24:20, Amalek was called the ‘first of the nations’.

    When he saw Amalek, he took up his parable and said, “Amalek was the first of the nations, and his fate shall be everlasting destruction.”

    When haShem will take the kingdom from Amalek He will make the land desolate.

    1. The Lord has reigned, the earth will exult; many islands will rejoice.
    The Lord has reigned: when He takes the kingdom from Amalek and from his descendants.

    the earth will exult: This is what Ezekiel said (35:14): “When the whole earth rejoices, I shall make you desolate.” He prophesied this concerning Amalek.

      SHeM… Famous Amos was just a “Simple Sheep Herder Sycamore Fig Farmer”! The First to Write Down Shared Messages in the Purity of Language, Diction, & Poetic Art Spiritual Progenitor of Scriptures for All People Yesterday & Today. Unlike the Iran’s Shiia Regime? Amos Preached Jehovah Blessings of Israel, keeping “Watchful Eyes”, on Evil Philistines, Arameans & Pagans that Refused to Respect All People with Equal Privilege that Israel was known to Increase with Mutual Friendship Prosperity without Discrimination Promised by Abraham. Amos Taught All Religions Consists Not in Ritual but in Righteousness Proclaiming an Ethical Supreme Being Same Message Adopted by Mohammed from Allah as well. The Same Message that Iran’s Shiia Ignores by Practicing Bad Deeds Sowing Seeds of Deceit on other Nations, Cultures & People!

      Israel’s Amos-17 Satellite Launched into Space is meant to Protect Everyone not just in Israel but in the Mideast & Globally following the Ancient Prophets of Abraham, Moses, Jesus, & Mohammed! As Opposed by the False Ayatollahs that Dare Calls Themselves, “Supreme Shiia Leader”, while causing Desecration, Destruction & Death upon All Men, Women, and Children. A Blasphemy to Words in Torah, Talmud, Bibles, and Quran!

      The Protection From Amos & Amos-17 are The Same, not just by Words but by Deeds & Shaming Iran’s Regime Globally!

    Missile deployment in Asia: how China can respond to the US. China is concerned about the US plans to develop and test ground-based medium-range missiles.

    Missile deployment in Asia: how China can respond to the US

    China is concerned about the US plans to develop and test ground-based medium-range missiles. And he even threatened to answer Washington if they were deployed in the Asia-Pacific region. “Gazeta.Ru” understood that the PRC could oppose the United States militarily and how painful Beijing might be for the Americans.

    If the United States deploys new missiles in the Asia-Pacific region (APR), then China will take retaliatory measures, said Fu Cun, director of the arms control and disarmament department of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, during the briefing. True, what kind of retaliatory steps are we talking about, the diplomat did not specify. “China will not stand aside,” the Chinese politician promised.

      China is on the Verge of Economic Collapse especially if they Attack the People of Hong Kong. When, this happens it is just another Sign how Jehovah-Allah have Abandon Iran Supreme Leaders Ayatollahs Blinding them through their own Greed for Power Losing more Customers for Bad Behavior Upon Others! It Has Been Written & It Will Be Done! Both in Beijing & Tehran!

      • Aug 7, 2019 @ 13:12 at 13:12

        its not China on the verge of anything , its USA on the verge of anything ; The news propaganda is on the verge of collapse.

          @solomeo While the US mainstream media is teetering, they can still survive because they are global, and the income from the rest of the world keeps them afloat. Remember the media is not yet teetering in the rest of the world, because the rest of the world does not put up the resistance that the am erican people have done towards fake news.

          But Ginger is also correct. Apart from the US growing its economy most of the rest of the world is following the NWO plan of allowing China to take hegemonic positions which means that China comes out on top in trade with these nations. This is why they are in recession and to boost their national budgets they are allowing the Chinese to buy up ports, airports and mines to increase their global imperialist control.

          But Trump has seen through this and so while the US economy is growing fast the rest of the world is in recession.

          In the 5 Centuries World of Anglo-American Golden Rule, Nations that have Pirated Spanish Gold, Found Global Oil & Dominate Dollars Rule! While Geopolitical Limited Nations become Beggars when opposing the Global Value System of Freedom Seas Order! Such as China, Iran, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria & Yemen, remain Servants in Servitude as Sins Of Trade Sanctions was their Economic Choices now in Chaos they Caused Among Themselves!

    Beyond the company who owns and operates satellite there is nothing israeli in it. It was built by Boeing and launched by the american carrier. Why to report it here?

  • Aug 7, 2019 @ 15:02 at 15:02

    36,000 km is higher than most satellites. Is this correct?

    • Aug 7, 2019 @ 16:30 at 16:30

      Agree, got to be a mistake, 36K KM ?

    • Aug 7, 2019 @ 19:10 at 19:10

      35786 kilometers is the diameter of a geostationary orbit.

    • Aug 7, 2019 @ 19:44 at 19:44

      Because it is geostationary orbit, i.e. due to forces of gravity and laws of the celestial mechanics, satellite is rotating at the same speed around the Earth,as Earth itself around its axis, which creates effect of the satellite “constantly hanging” over particular spot of the Earth surface,all communication satellites are placed on it.

      • Aug 7, 2019 @ 21:01 at 21:01

        Yes, and to be more specific this is an iranostationary satellite.
        In fact the whole secret is into the name of the project, Atomic Mullahs Overhead Surveillance = Amos.
        But, there was no “destroyed by an explosion on the launch pad” these are Mossad cheap tricks.
        I would say there are no less than 4 satellites over Iran at any given time.
        And hey! Night moves are the easiest to detect with this new generation of satellites.

    Solomeo… USA just Today Hit Chinese Cabinet Manufacturers With $4.4 Billion Countervailing Duty as Beijing is now Caught in a Stunning 200%+ Subsidy Rate For Chinese Companies! What this means is Traditional Export Manufacturers in the Pearl & Yangtze River Regions already Struggling now have New Tariffs causing more Chinese Businesses to Shrink, Forcing Lay Offs & Speed up relocation plans. Imagine, China as a Big Lake Filled with American Dollars Economic Value due to American Purchases of these Products. USA-ASEAN Discussions with Vietnam, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, Japan, Et Al Pacific Rim, has Stealthily Built a Thin Levy Dam, that will Direct China;s Lake of Dollars into other Pacific Rim Nations. At the same time, America can Blow Up The Dam with Triggering Bigger Tariffs and the Rushes of American Dollars Exodus will benefit ASEAN Partnered with America. For example, Vietnam’s Economy has jumped 8%+ this Year Alone Exclusively as a result of Companies leaving China.

    Great: but it still cannot take down even one of countless fire-baloons, launched by the two-legged hamas rats !
