Every Western country may experience such a thing in the future.
............................Thousands of Hamas-linked terrorists planned to invade Israel on the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah), which begins on September 24, according to an Israel security source.
First reported by Ma'ariv, then in English by i24news, “thousands of terrorists were meant to cross over to Israel from Gaza through the tunnels and kill and kidnap as many Israelis as they could
Seeing that the mainstream media has not been reporting the information below, I am providing the same as a sort of public service. Maybe presenting Hamas' intentions would interfere with the "Palestinians are suffering" general narrative which follows casualty rates like the value of the stock market.
One is hard-pressed to read the story below and believe it. The thought of "thousands" of wild-eyed terrorists popping out of tunnels, killing scores and then moving to other parts of the country to do the same seems beyond credible. Yet, Hamas has always strived for mass murder--the Sbarro attack (15 killed), Park Hotel (30 killed ) and the Dolphanarium (21 kids)--and apparently they wanted to go up a few orders of magnitude. The tunnels clearly exist and IDF videos show terrorists popping out and into them, before they receive a brief lesson on the function of the Hellfire or Tammuz missile system. Dozens of ready tunnels to funnel scores of terrorists on the day when Jews are concentrated in their houses of worship.

Peace has never been made by one side alone. Sharon was lionized for running out on Gaza; one would be tempted to put a live feed on his grave so he can see what has been done there during the past decade. The US also plans to pull out of Afghanistan; will the outcome be any different? Both sides have to want peace. It was a shame that James Baker called out the telephone number for the State Department when he blamed Shamir for failure in peace talks; he should have given the number to Arafat. Nobody here wants war; running away only makes the future war that much worse. What should Israel do to prevent Palestinian casualties? Absorb tens of rockets per day? Let Hamas bring better rockets from Iran? During the Cold War, the US kept tens of thousands of soldiers in Europe and spent billions on nuclear ballistic missiles and advanced spy planes and B"H throughout the Communist period, there was no war in Europe.
We pray for peace and for good news. The safety and well-being of the soldiers and those living here in Israel are foremost in our prayers and thoughts. We should only hear good things.
Thousands of Hamas-linked terrorists planned to invade Israel on the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah), which begins on September 24, according to an Israel security source.
First reported by Ma'ariv, then in English by i24news, “thousands of terrorists were meant to cross over to Israel from Gaza through the tunnels and kill and kidnap as many Israelis as they could. The source added that the army learned about the huge planned attack during the interrogations of Hamas prisoners, captured during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.”
Reports state that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu informed his cabinet about the foiled plot during a Thursday cabinet meeting. The leader of the Jewish State reportedly expressed to officials that if this attack was not stopped, the number of Israeli fatalities may have been higher than the over 2,200 deaths Israel suffered during 1973 Yom Kippur War.
During Israel’s recent incursion into Gaza, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have set their sights on destroying Hamas’ sophisticated tunnel system. In the past, the U.S.-designated terror group has successfully infiltrated the Jewish State, resulting in the killing and kidnapping of Israeli soldiers. The last occurrence was on July 19 when two IDF soldiers lost their lives and the assailants were able to escape back to Gaza through a tunnel. Gen. James T. Conway, USMC (ret.) recently returned from Israel, where he was joined by a dozen retired U.S. generals and admirals, sponsored by Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). While there, the group toured a tunnel from Gaza recently discovered near an Israeli kindergarten.
“Unlike tunnels that I had seen during the Iraq war that were designed for smuggling, this Hamas tunnel was designed for launching murder and kidnapping raids. The 3-mile-long tunnel was reinforced with concrete, lined with telephone wires, and included cabins unnecessary for infiltration operations but useful for holding hostages,” the retired General wrote in the Wall Street Journal.
Israel has reportedly destroyed over 30 tunnels during “Operation Protective Edge.” The Jewish State contends that Hamas, which governs Gaza, devotes resources to building tunnels to commit acts of terrorism, instead of building homes, parks, schools and hospitals.
An article published by the Gatestone Institute quotes an Israeli spokesman’s observation that “there are two Gazas, one above ground and one below ground: an underground terrorist city.”
