Tunnel Vision

The Hamas Charter: A Covenant for Israel’s Destruction

The Hamas Charter (“The Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement”) rejects all peace talks with the State of Israel and stresses the terrorist organization’s commitment to destroy Israel through a long-term holy war (jihad). The 1988 charter – an overtly antisemitic and anti-Western document which expresses Hamas’ radical Islamic outlook – is valid till today.

Hamas, a terror proxy of Iran, has a murderous goal stated in their charter.  This extreme hatred gives them tunnel vision, a fascist evil vision of ridding the world of Jews just as Hitler tried to do.

This murderous hatred has been ignited and erupted into pro-palestinian jihad demonstrations all over world. Including Calgary, Canada where a family was swarmed by violent thugs and physically attacked.

This revulsion for the Jews has given Hamas a tunnel vision that keeps them locked in a cycle of violent and homicidal behaviors that even when they are losing the battle they continue on.  It leads them to teach their children with the help of UNRWA, to hate and kill Jews. Even their television shows for their children indoctrinates with the detestation of the Jews.

During this latest war against Hamas and Islamic Jihad, where Israel has to defend itself from rockets raining down on their cities, the IDF uncovered a network of terror tunnels so vast that even the Israeli leadership was surprised at the vastness and elaborate design of this labyrinth of passageways.

Daniel Greenfield reports in his article:

From the 48 Hamas prisoners that have been captured, the intelligence have been interrogating them and the most terrifying, and horrific picture is being built.

They are being investigated about the many tunnels that have been found and dug under many kibbutzim that surround Gaza. The most terrifying detail is being uncovered that Hamas had a plan to attack all the settlements and kibbutzim in the area this year on Rosh Hashanah with an invasion of over 200 terrorists into almost all the settlements in the area. The tunnels went under the kibbutzim under the kindergartens and dining rooms and other areas within the kibbutz perimeters. They planned to occupy the whole area and kill as many Israeli as possible.

This could have been the worst terror attack in the history of terrorism. Thousands of people, including women and children would have been slaughtered in this planned attack.”

According to the IDF the cost of one of these tunnels can run into the millions of dollars and the use of hundreds of tons of concrete and yet no bomb shelters were built for their people as they were preparing for a war against Israel.

It was reported in Tablet Magazine that 160 Gazan children were killed in assisting with building the terror tunnels but of course this is a boring and ignored afterthought since the Jews had no hand in the death of these children.

It has also been extensively reported as well that Hamas fires their rockets into Israel from civilian areas and buildings, cynically using their own people as human shields and then blaming Israel.  True to form it was voted at the UN to condemn Israel.

According to an article in The Times of Israel:

“One video uploaded to YouTube showed troops at a Palestinian house located near a UN school, which had been rigged up with explosives.

“We went inside, the search dog and I, and we found eight bombs connected to each other,” a soldier says. The soldier points out that the house is right by a UN school.

Another soldier then shows explosives rigged inside the basement, masked to look like parts of a chicken coop.”

Obama and Kerry have tunnel vision too as they ignore the extreme danger these tunnels and weapons pose to innocent Israeli’s and that this is a proxy war being fought with Iran.  They insist on denying reality and strong arming Israel into a cease fire leaving the weaponry and terror tunnels intact.

Kerry rushed off to the Middle East to force Israel into a suicidal cease fire pact with this genocidal terror proxy of Iran.  Thank God the Israeli Cabinet rejected the dangerous proposal.

Suspiciously the FAA cancelled all flights to Israel claiming it was unsafe, meanwhile there are far more unsafe places all over the world where US aircraft still fly to.  John Kerry was able to fly in for his Messianic Stalker Photo Op though.

Jennifer Rubin stated in her blog:

“In either case, Obama and Kerry have more egg on their faces, having just reinforced how irrelevant to the Middle East they have become. If anything, we’ve learned that the president is content to let events play out. His “policy,” whether with Iran or Russia, consists of wishful thinking and empty threats. And we’ve also learned that Israel will pay a great price in blood, treasure and diplomatic vilification to survive. No, the Jewish state is not going to commit national suicide. That is true when it comes to Hamas, and Iran is well. Israel is simply not going to allow itself to be bullied into surrender, which is what leaving deadly tunnels in place would amount to.”

And Barak Ravid wrote in his piece:

“The draft Kerry passed to Israel on Friday shocked the cabinet ministers not only because it was the opposite of what Kerry told them less than 24 hours earlier, but mostly because it might as well have been penned by Khaled Meshal. It was everything Hamas could have hoped for.

Kerry isn’t anti-Israeli; on the contrary, he’s a true friend to Israel. But his conduct in recent days over the Gaza cease-fire raises serious doubts over his judgment and perception of regional events. It’s as if he isn’t the foreign minister of the world’s most powerful nation, but an alien, who just disembarked his spaceship in the Mideast.”

Do you suppose that the sponsor of this terror war with Israel, Iran, knows just how ineffectual Kerry and Obama are on the world stage?  Of course they do and they are using it to their benefit.  As the US and the P5+1 countries are negotiating with Iran they are fighting a proxy terror war with Israel.

Economic Minister Naftali Bennett gets to the bottom line on the issue in his article in The Daily Beast:

“For Israel, the message is clear. An Iran that provides, already today, its terror proxies with sophisticated rockets, drones, and other technology could one day hand off a crude nuclear device or dirty bomb to these same terrorists.

In addition, an Iranian regime with nuclear weapons is a regime more willing to take risks and to test the West’s resolve. Deterrence will no longer work.

That is why Israel’s operation in the Gaza Strip needs to be put into the correct context. While the terrorists against whom Israeli soldiers are fighting in Gaza are Palestinian, they are in reality proxies of Iran located on our western border.

Simply put—Israel is fighting Iran.”
