Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Pentagon approves sale of JDAM system to Israel

The Pentagon on Monday notified Congress that it had approved the sale of nearly 7,000 GPS-guided weapons to Israel.

Israel requested 6,900 Joint Direct Attack Munition tail kits, or JDAMs, as part of a weapons purchase request worth $647 million that comes as tensions mount with Middle East rival Iran.

The JDAM is a guidance kit that converts unguided bombs into so-called "smart" bombs. JDAMs can be preprogrammed to hit a target or navigate autonomously toward a target using GPS.

JDAM kits are built by Boeing along with Alliant Techsystems, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics and Raytheon.

This animation explains how the JDAM system works.
