Hamas’ Terror Tunnels

Hamas invests in its terrorist infrastructure instead of civil infrastructure for Gaza's residents.

Construction materials meant for Palestinians routinely enter Gaza from Israel. To be exact, 4,680 trucks carrying 181 thousand tons of gravel, iron, cement, wood and other supplies have passed through the Kerem Shalom crossing since the beginning of 2014.

Imagine what Hamas could build with these resources instead of tunnels. Hundreds of homes and civilian structures for the residents of Gaza go unbuilt while the underground terror network continues to expand.

Hamas’ first priority is killing Jews. The people of Gaza and the people of Israel suffer because of this. According to The Institute for Palestine Studies Hamas killed 160 Arab children while building these tunnels.

Activities effect our everyday life

This kind of thing affects us all, around the world. People think there life is peaceful, and try to ignore the reality, of what goes on. What tragedy has to be, before people finally act

I have a good question. Tunnels are not a one-way street. If the tunnels are already built and are lost to the enemy anyway, instead of destroying the tunnels why not simply confiscate them and use them as a handy tool for the IDF to enter and monitor Gaza?

This will also have the effect of legitimizing retaking parts of Eretz Yisrael instead of giving up on them, since in the final status they will belong to us anyway.

you can only confiscate the tunnels once you have won the war ,not before.

The world needs to know about this

This is the truth about Hamas. They DO NOT want peace. If Israel were to become Palestine, the next target would be Europe. Why don't these people get this? It's easier to curse the darkness than to turn on a light.

I saw the devastation in Gaza on CNN. Someone asked me if I felt bad for them. I said it looked like Europe after wwII. . Did they care that millions of people were killed for no reason? Did they care that nothing was left standing? NO! They sided with the Nazis.
As Antonio said, THEY DO NOT WANT PEACE. THEY WILL NEVER WANT PEACE. The destruction of Israel is their goal. They will die doing it. They will NEVER GIVE UP. We need to pray and pray and beg Hashem to send us a salvation

Palestine is a farce and Hamas is a fraud

I heard the author of 'Son of Hamas', whose father is a founder of Hamas and who split from it when imprisoned in Israel.

He clearly says that Hamas is not a nationalist group and not a political group but simply one more Islamist power-seeking group like Hezbollah and Al Qaeda, using the Palestinian identity as a tool for greater global operations.

Islamist ideology does not distinguish between civilians and combatants and between sacrificing lives and saving them. They are about dominating the entire Planet Earth and all of its inhabitants thereof. In other words if you are not an Islamist then Hamas and PA are nothing but organized crime.
