Iran's Parade of the S-300

I've Been Thinking:
Iranian leadership just staged a huge military parade.
A highlight of the parade was a display of Iran’s new weapons - including their new S-300 Russian made anti-aircraft missile system.
The S-300 is a very capable weapon. It is a vast improvement over the Russian S-200 system that Iran has, up until now, relied on.
One of the purposes of the parade, in addition to reviving national pride, was to send out a message to Israel. The message was that Islam, and Iran in particular, intends to destroy Israel. There were floats that had pictures of Israeli flags being hit and destroyed by Muslim fists.
Israelis don't seem too concerned about the S-300s. That tells me that they already have a defense against the S-300 in place and ready to go.
That is a good sign.
