Apparently the Rebbe isn't aware of the Iron Dome anti-missile system the US made possible or all the other help it gives Israel.
At any rate, according to Yeshiva World:
…In 1944, the Rebbe was put on a transport to Auschwitz by the Nazis and he arrived there three days before Shavuos. While in Auschwitz, he was experimented upon by Joseph Mengele ym”sh, and, consequently, is unable to have children or grow facial hair. He was transferred from there to the Warsaw Ghetto and the Breslau concentration camp, and later to Bergen-Belsen. Six months after the war ended, he discovered that his wife had survived, and they were reunited in Sweden. In 1947, they migrated to the United States, where he began his work in memorializing the Holocaust in Cleveland, Ohio.
The Rebbe moved to Eretz Yisroel in 1962 and the Rebbe created Kiryas Kaliv in Rishon LeZion. Several years later, the Rebbe moved his chassidus to Bnei Brak. In 2004, the Rebbe’s court moved to Yerushalayim.…
