The Keys to the Jewish Kingdom Tour [photos]

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

If you’re touring Israel and don’t go inside a Hamas terror tunnel and visit an Iron Dome installation, it’s like going to Disney World without buying the special backstage pass to see the Magic Kingdom’s underground Utilidor tunnels and other hidden areas.

U.S. Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Thomas Shannon visited southern Israel on August 29, 2016.

He stopped at the Kerem Shalom crossing point to see how goods enter and leave the Gaza Strip.

He was briefed on and toured a Hamas tunnel that had been discovered by the IDF.

He met with local residents from several communities at Kibbutz Or HaNer, and at the Kibbutz he toured the Ornit factory.

He also visited an Iron Dome battery (but wasn’t allowed to press the red button).

That’s the Jewish Kingdom’s backstage pass tour. Beats Disney any day of the week – especially Shabbat.

New Gaza Tunnel Collapse Buries Alive Islamic Jihad Terrorists

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

At least half a dozen Islamic Jihad terrorists were buried alive in a new Gaza tunnel collapse late Tuesday night.

The tunnel was being dug in a location east of the Shujaya section of Gaza City, according to unnamed sources quoted by the Hebrew-language 0404 website.

Ten of the operatives involved in digging the new tunnel were taken to a local hospitals with a range of injuries, according to the source.

Just before the tunnel collapse an explosion was heard, the source said.

Shujaya is the section of the city where some of the most ferocious battles were fought between Israeli soldiers and Gaza terrorists during the 2014 counter terror war known as Operation Protective Edge.

2 Islamic Jihad Terrorists Dead in Work Accident

Monday, July 25th, 2016

Two Islamic Jihad terrorists were killed in a “work accident” Sunday.

The two operatives were apparently working on something in a tunnel beneath the streets of Khan Younis in Gaza.

“Last week they lost another man in a tunnel collapse in the same area,” said security analyst Daniel Nisman, co-founder of the Levantine Group in a post on the Twitter social networking site.

The terrorist group said in its announcement the operatives were carrying out an unspecified “jihad operation” in southern Gaza at the time of the incident.

Numerous tunnel operations take place in Khan Younis, not far from where a Hamas operative taught a group of young women on Sunday how to shoot guns at a human target.

Gaza Tunnel Collapses And Another Digger is Gone

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Arab media report at least one man is dead and numerous others are missing in a terrorist tunnel collapse in Gaza.

Salah al-Astal Amid was identified as the man who was buried alive and died in the collapse, according to Arab sources.

It is not yet known how many Hamas operatives were hurt in the collapse, nor why the tunnel caved in on Monday.

A little more than a week ago, an Islamic Jihad terrorist died while helping to dig a tunnel which collapsed on him in Gaza near the Erez Crossing into Israel.

Seven other terrorists were trapped for hours in the collapsed tunnel, but eventually were rescued by fellow Islamic Jihad operatives.

The Definition of Insanity

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

The photo above is of Gazan trucks loaded with bags of cement after they entered Gaza from Israel at the Kerem Shalom crossing, on May 23, 2016.

On May 22, Israel lifted a temporary ban imposed last month on private imports of cement to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, just around the time the latest terror tunnels were found. Those terror tunnels were built with cement sent into Gaza and diverted by Hamas.

Israel accused Imad al-Baz, the deputy director of the Hamas economic ministry of the latest diversion of supplies.

What’s going to stop these cement shipments from being diverted?

The answer is unclear.

Gaza Border Residents Demand IDF’s Return

Sunday, May 8th, 2016

Residents in communities near the Gaza border are demanding the IDF restore IDF troops to inside their towns. Residents are afraid of the terror tunnels that lead up to their communities, fearing there might also already be Hamas terror tunnels opening up directly underneath their towns.

Despite the resident’s ongoing concerns since the last war with Gaza, the IDF began withdrawing troops stationed inside the communities in January 2015.

The IDF responded to the demand stating they have beefed up the forces around the towns.
