IDF Takes You On a Guided Tour of Terror Tunnel

Hamas terror tunnels, destroyed by the IDF war against Hamas terror, have become more popular than the Western Wall tunnel, where thousands of tourists walk daily.

Lt. Libby Weiss from the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit gives an exclusive look into the tunnel that ended near Kibbutz Ein HaShlosha. The discovery of the tunnel foiled what would have been a mass slaughter of Jews on the kibbutz at the hands of Hamas murderers. But how could the IDF spokeswoman have led a virtual tour of the tunnel if the IDF destroyed all of them? An IDF spokesman explained to The Jewish Press that the military left the Israeli side of the tunnel in tact so that it could be used for military training as well as for the media to see how Hamas used the humanitarian aid.

Perhaps the kibbutz or the IDF could encourage tourism in the south by opening the tunnel for public tours. An “Israel tunnel tour” could take people to the terror tunnel to understand the demented brain of Hamas and then could take them to Jerusalem to walk through the Western Wall tunnel and experience the site where Herod expanded the Second Temple.

  1. Don’t worry!
    Liberal Democrats in USA are always going to keep funding Gaza!

    They believe in “Fair and Balanced” when it comes to Israel vs. Gaza.

    Unbelievable that USA liberal Democrats like Barack Hussein Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, John Kerry, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Debbie Wassserman Schultz, Barbara Boxer Diane Feinstein continue to have dealings with radical Islamists worldwide and will not stop ISIS, Hamas, Al-Queida, Hezzabollah, Boco Haram.

    Thanks, USA!

  2. Paint the walls with highly radioactive material. Rat trap

  3. And that was without paying for labour.

  4. Stop the funding, stop the tunnels!

  5. Fina Chong says:

  6. Please listen to this video? It will truly expose the reality of the Israeli/ Palestinian conflict.
