Revealed: Terror Tunnel Led to Israeli Town
inn ^ | 10/12/13 | Maayana Miskin

IDF soldiers recently discovered a tunnel, built by Gaza terrorists, that led from Gaza to a nearby Israeli community. The discovery was made late Wednesday night, but was under a gag order until Sunday morning.

Terrorists were apparently planning a large-scale infiltration and attack, and were possibly planning to bring Israeli civilians back to Gaza as captives.

Terrorists have made several attempts to kidnap Israelis in recent months, with the goal of exchanging captives for terrorists being held in Israeli prisons. A terror tunnel similar to that found Wednesday night was used in the 2006 kidnapping of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, along with the killing of two other soldiers.

The terror tunnel that was exposed began in the Gaza town of Absan al-Zariz, located between the city of Khan Younis and the Gaza security fence. It extended for 2.5 kilometers (over 1.5 miles).

The tunnel had been packed with explosives at various points. Several offshoots had been dug leading off in various directions.

In the animal kingdom, rats and vermin dig subterranean tunnels in order to move from point A to point B in order to forrage for food and escape without being eaten themselves.

In the sub-animal Arab-Muslim-Palestinian kingdom, (aka SAAMP), Palestinian terrorists (no, not “militants”, not “fighters”, not “martyrs”) dig tunnels in order to infiltrate civilian centers and kill many children in a kibbutz kindergarten.

In the animal kingdom they do this in order to survive.

In the SAAMP kingdom they do this out of incredible boredom and violent religious and national upbringing.

One is an animal, driven by hunger.
The other is a sub-animal, driven by a blood lust.

Both are vermin.
Both need to be flushed out, drowned or killed on the spot.

I hope there are no sensitive bleeding hearts out there that will use my word “vermin” in order to remind me that the Nazis called the Jews “vermin” too.

One must not differentiate between these Palestinian vermin and the one with tails.

As former Pres. Bush said after 9/11...”...smoke ‘em out”.

If these morons drilled for oil or mined with the same initiative they use to try to kill Jews they wouldn't be a failed society.

Oh, and get rid of that mohammaden thingy.

Palestinians are indeed drilling. It just depends on how you define “drilling” and for what.

The Palestinians always claim that they are victims of Israel “oppression” and the “occupation” (not since 1967 but since 1917, that they never say to Christian Amampour).

The drill tunnels in order to kill Jews.

They drill their young people in how to kill Jews.

They (the boys) drill (just as Yassir Arafart did) each other’s rear ends.

They drill into building materials and walls in order to place weapons stockpiles into residential housing for human shield's.

The drill, drill, drill the world about their victim hood.

Drill for oil? Be productive?

Move on and compromise for a settlement to the conflict?

No way. It's easier to drill each other’s bums...that the Muslim Arabs, what are you going to do?

Teach them to value human life? Are you serious?

Most Arab-Muslim states are “failed states”. So what could make more sense than for the UN and the US State Dept. to create ANOTHER failed Arab nation state and call her Palestine?
Do these people seem like they’re ready to run a state?

‘Palestinian terrorists (no, not “militants”, not “fighters”, not “martyrs”)’

How about, ‘extremist’???

Will that work?

Any word will fit as long as it does NOT adequately describe who these scum really are.

The terms “Terror” and “terrorist” are tossed about so casually today that the terms have become blurred by an anxious West too scared to look out from underneath the bed sheets at night.

Only Netanyahu calls a spade a spade...that’s why they loath him.

Years ago, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) was used aboard the space shuttle to see under the surface of the Earth. They discovered where former rivers once flowed, ancient archaeological sites, etc.

One would think that SAR could be used to spot tunnels, depending on the depth. Not sure about depth readings. Anybody ever hear about this technology (used by air forces) applied to tunnel hunting?

No, that’s reserved for the evil Tea Party Republicans...

Those individuals seem to have a lot of energy - to dig tunnels and work for the destruction of Israel. If they would channel their energy towards learning something, building something, producing something, or doing something useful they would not be so miserable.

That would be against their religion to do something constructive. It is easier to envy and destroy.

The tunnels should have been monitored and collapsed when in use.

I would install explosive cord down the length of it, install motion game cameras, and wait until the tunnel was full of ragheads. There would be intermittent puffs of smoke at tunnel entries.

I said most...look at the numbers per populations. How many well to do rich Arab states are there? The vast majority of the Arabs are failed nations. You're right about Kuwait or Qatar but how man folks live there and how many are members of the same “CHAMULAH” tribe? How many Saud family members in key positions within the kingdoms? The vast majority do not live in skyscraper heaven...

are there in

Thanks Nachum.
...that led from Gaza to a nearby Israeli community...

But wait, how did they get explosives, since the Zionist Entity is strangling Gaza with a blockade?!? /s

What a neat idea. They built a tunnel just for us to mount a night assault on a few missile launch pads and other targets, then do an air extraction of the assault force while others pour concrete down the tunnel. Thank you terrorist, scum.
