Hamas Rocket Testing and Tunnel Reconstruction

We warned against the lunacy of giving Hamas and Fatah terrorists concrete and supplies to supposedly “rebuild Gaza”.

I found this picture of one of the terror tunnels.

I found this disturbing picture of one of the smaller terror tunnels. What exactly is going on here?

Four months after the end of Operation Protective Edge, Hamas is back on track creating terror. As it commemorates 27 years since its inception, Hamas has begun to reconstruct the destroyed underground tunnels in Gaza and
rebuild their weapons arsenal:

Rocket Testing and Tunnel Reconstruction December 19, a rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip at southern Israel, the third projectile launched at Israel since the IDF’s most recent operation. In response, the Israeli Air Force hit a Hamas terror site in southern Gaza.

During Operation Protective Edge, the IDF took action in Gaza to stop incessant rocket attacks from Gaza – like the one that took place last week – and stop the threat posed by underground terror tunnels. As a part of the battles that took place across Gaza, civilian structures were targeted because they were used by the terrorists to attack IDF troops.

In order to aid in the reconstruction of the coastal enclave, the IDF began to facilitate the transport of construction materials into the Gaza Strip in mid-October. Only two months later, reports indicate that Hamas has resumed investment in its terror infrastructure. Israeli media report that Hamas has started to take advantage of the import of iron and other “dual-use” materials to rebuild its rocket and missile arsenal, as well as its terror tunnel system.

As a part of Operation Protective Edge, 32 Hamas terror tunnels were discovered and destroyed by the IDF. According to Palestinian sources published in the Israeli media, the Sunni terrorist organization has diverted some of these materials imported from Israel – along with other black market materials – to rehabilitate the destroyed terror tunnels.

Furthermore, Hamas recently launched a series of rocket and missile tests and has reportedly begun manufacturing new rockets. The rocket fired at Israel on Friday hit an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council, which suffered the loss of civilian life during Operation Protective Edge.

  • It is not my first time to go to see this website, i am visiting this web site dailly and obtain fastidious data from here all the time.

    • It is not based on the Nuremberg Laws( although some aptsogilos have used that excuse_ because it differs from the Nuremberg laws in its definition of who is a Jew. And the original Knesset law did not offer the expanded version that the 1970 amendment did, even though it was enacted in the post war era when the Nuremberg Laws were still fresh on people’s minds.As Raul Hilberg pointed out, the task of explaining the laws and fully articulating them was left to the bureaucracy. On November 14, 1935, the RMI issued a supplement to the Nuremberg Laws of September 15, 1935, which created the racial categories of German, Jew, half-Jew (Jewish Mischling first degree), and quarter-Jew (Jewish Mischling second degree), each with its own regulations. Apparently, Hitler decided for the time being to keep half-Jews as such rather than treating them as full Jews. Full Jews had three to four Jewish grandparents. According to Hitler, when someone was more than 50 percent Jewish, he was beyond the point of saving and was evil (uebel). Half-Jews had two Jewish grandparents, and quarter-Jews had one Jewish grandparent. The Nazis had to resort to religious criteria to define these racial categories, ultimately determined by birth, baptismal, marriage, and death certificates. Often stored in churches and courthouses, these records indicated what religion one adhered to or had left. When a Mischling belonged to the Jewish religion or was married to a Jew, the Nazis counted him as a full Jew. Jews could only marry Jews or half-Jews, and half-Jews could only marry Jews or other half-Jews. Quarter-Jews could only marry Aryans, although in practice they experienced difficulties in doing so. Marriages between a Jew and an Aryan that had occurred before 1935 were called privileged mixed marriages and provided some protection for the Jewish spouse. Most Jews who survived the Holocaust in Germany were married to non-Jews. At the same time, Hitler allowed some Mischlinge to apply for exemptions under section 7 of the supplementary decrees of November 1935. In some cases, if Hitler approved, the Mischling was allowed to call himself or herself an Aryan./ And here is the Israeli Law of Return as originally enacted by the the Knesset in 1950 and as it was amended in 1970:Notice that the expanded version of the law occurred in 1970, not in the law that was originally passed in which only a Jew by religion or anyone born to a Jewish mother is considered a Jew. The change in law in 1970 had little to do with the Nuremberg Laws, which it did not mirror, and had a very lot to do with the interest of the state of Israel to expand the number of Jews immigrating to Israel, which was being negatively impacted by the restrictions placed on those families that included non-Jews . Given the then recent capture of the occupied territories and the annexation of Jerusalem, Israel was critically interested in expanding their Jewish demographic base so as to counter the Palestinian demographic threat . Note too, that it was not until 2005 that the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that foreign converts to Reform and Conservative Judaism were allowed to utilize the right. Prior to that, any foreign convert had to be a convert to Orthodox Judaism in order to qualify under the right of return. This, of course, had nothing to do with the Nuremberg Laws, either, but was seen in Israel as an attempt to lessen the power of Orthodox Judaism over the question of Who is a Jew?
