Israel's advanced missile defense system is being designed in northern Alabama.   

Al.com reports that the system named David's Sling was partially designed in Huntsville to help Israel's defense against regional enemies such as Iran, Palestine, Turkey, and other countries in the Middle East. The defense system is designed to intercept enemy drones, planes, medium- to long-range rockets, tactical ballistic missiles and cruise missiles. The system is named after the David and Goliath Bible story.

Alabama-Israel Task Force (AITF)

The city of Huntsville is hosting a gathering Tuesday, March 25th in celebration of the relationship between Alabama and Israel.  John Buhler is co-founder of the Alabama-Israel Task Force, a group working to bring Christians and Jews together in support of the biblical restoration of the nation of Israel.  Buhler says Alabama issued a resolution in 1943 calling for the establishment of a homeland for the Jewish people 5 years before the state of Israel was declared.
