FROM the get go, let’s be very clear: the last thing this American-Israeli wants to do is to expose the mendacity and dirty laundry of Israel’s (so-called Zionist) leaders, regardless of party alignment. This aspect is neither here nor there.
NOT only that, but a veritable smorgasbord of Israel bashers are always at the ready to gang bang on Israel, merely for having the temerity to survive. Therefore, the immediate inclination is to shut one’s trap, especially when ones love for Israel – as the Jewish homeland – is boundless.
THAT being said, the fact remains that if an individual is a committed Zionist, the person dare not sweep inconvenient and dirty truths under the national rug. Never.
AS such, much has been written at this site (duly highlighted at several internationally charged interviews) to peel back the dangers, consequences aside.
IN this regard, let the following serve as requisite backgrounder to the latest lies from Israel’s misnamed right-wing leaders, in relation to terror tunnels and more of the same.
AS reported back in March 2013, then, as now, Israel’s leadership capitulated to Hamas’s demands, even as they bragged otherwise.
The above failures of leadership led to November 2012’s unfinished foray into Gaza, but not due to any operational failures by the IDF and its intelligence arms. They performed brilliantly. This is without a doubt. Alas, the politicians, always led around the nose by Washington, allowed the Islamist-in-Chief to dictate Israel’s war plans, as if he is the master of Israel’s fate, and not Jerusalem’s leadership. Ghetto Jews.
Hence, the ground troops never entered to clean out the nest (everyone knows that a “root canal” is mandatory to achieve victory, once the air force/special ops paves the way, and this doesn’t take a military or political genius to figure out), and Israel’s spineless leaders reverted true to form…
THUS, isn’t it fair to term leaders who “ceasefire” with Hamas and Hezbollah – again and again – as perfidious and derelict? Absolutely.
AND even though missiles exploded over Tel Aviv and throughout Israel during the entire summer of 2014, a rational sort would believe that enough was enough, right? Moreover, wouldn’t anything short of victory be construed as a non-starter? Nope.
ALAS, surprise…surprise, just like within every war fought against the Brotherhood’s Hamas, Israel’s leaders bailed and ceased their fire – after the most fiery war in recent memory – as ordered by Obama Inc., Washington’s latest string-pullers.
SO, instead of vanquishing Israel’s genocidal foes once and for all, appeasement became their “strategic” goal, even though the IDF’s firepower (force multipliers) could have put Hamas, in toto, buried more than six feet under for eternity. Wow…what a missed opportunity!
AHH, as Israel’s leaders are wont to term it, “mowing the grass” has become a viable military “strategic conceptzia”. Madness…שיגעון! Victory has been taken off the table. Period.
DEMONSTRABLY, during the latest missile war in 2014 (even though almost ALL of Israel’s southern citizens fled for their lives, due to Hamas’s missile blitzes, rendering the south a ghost region), and in tandem with Hamas’s ability to pop out of terror tunnels – right under the noses of the IDF – Israel’s tethered leaders are still blind to the dangers. Complicit too! How so?
INEXTRICABLY, the questions and answers are two-fold: how did this nightmare come about? and what have Israel’s leaders learned, if anything, from said experiences of inconclusive war-fighting?
IN answer to the above, we need to link-back to two explanatory interviews at Inquisitr, and readers can gauge for themselves what’s going on.
YES, the Inquisitr Interviews Adina Kutnicki: The Reality Of Life For An Israeli Patriot is more than an overview; a window into the derelict leadership’s mindset as to what’s what.
INDEED, the follow-on question becomes: Can Israel Survive As The Jewish State? – An Interview With Adina Kutnicki.
AS such, the answers to the first query, “how did this nightmare come about?” can be found within the aforementioned interviews and the above backgrounder(s).
BUT the answers to the second part, “what have Israel’s leaders learned, if anything, from said experiences of inconclusive war-fighting?” are beyond belief, but no less true.
RELATIVE to Israel’s southern front, as it butts up against Hamas’s terror enclave, “Gazastan”, the following is an accurate and up to date rendering. Mind you, mention is made of a similar (immoral) blindness, relative to Hezbollah’s digging and digging…hang on…
Gaza Belt residents told Channel 2 Monday that they had heard and felt digging beneath their feet, and that they no longer trust the IDF’s public statements on the security situation in the region.
“Today I sat on my living room couch, and I felt everything shake under me,” one resident on a Gaza Belt-area kibbutz told the daily.
Even after alerting the IDF, she noted that “I don’t know whether to actually trust the IDF or not on whether there’s terror tunnel digging here. The uncertainty is terrible.”
Over 30 terror tunnels from Gaza into Israel were uncovered, and destroyed, during the course of the summer war.
But many Gaza Belt residents indicated that they know another war, with more tunnels, is on the way.
“I’ve been waiting for it, for them to pop out of the ground,” another resident told Channel 2, in frustration. “We’re living here on a lot of adrenaline and with a lot of vigilance.”
The resident added that the entire kibbutz was on alert “every time a dog passes through the bushes [and makes a noise].”
“We know that everything is possible,” he added.
Gaza Division Commander Itay Virov visited the Gaza Belt last week to reassure area residents that the army is doing everything possible to prevent Hamas from re-entering Israel. A special IDF unit was also sent to sites of complaints over digging noises and concluded that they found no indication of terror tunnel digging.
“The IDF performs a variety of routine security measures and defense forces in the region are prepared,” an IDF spokesperson responded to the report. “Complaints area residents make to the IDF are investigated seriously by special forces.”
History of ignoring complaints?
Gaza area residents’ speculation stems from multiple incidents of the IDF whistling past the terror tunnel graveyard.
In January, residents along the Lebanon-Israel border stated that they would fund their own investigation team to examine the possibility of Hezbollah digging terror tunnels into Israel, after the IDF reportedly denied repeatedly that there was any evidence of digging.
When asked about the digging noises earlier this year, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon (Likud) claimed “no tunnels have been located on the northern border. Noises that were heard beneath a home turned out to be a neighbor’s horse stomping with its hooves.” (blogger’s note: Ya’alon, what are you babbling about, how stupid do you think they are??)
But a video posted on YouTube shortly thereafter, said to have been filmed at night in Shtula on the border with Lebanon, had many seriously doubting Ya’alon’s claims.
Alarm has also been raised after the IDF and Defense Ministry cut guard duty near northern border communities – just one year after a similar move along the Gaza Belt saw an escalation in terror and, eventually, war.
Concerns were raised as well by geologist and Col. (res.) Yossi Langotsky, who told Arutz Sheva in December that he had tried to warn the security establishment about the tunnel threat from Gaza for nine years, but that his warnings fell on deaf ears. (blogger’s note: here is said warning: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/184726#.VRPo5fmUdes).
“The facts were known,” he said, regarding terror tunnels in the Gaza belt. “The system went to sleep for a few years and did not do what needed to be done.”
MOST significantly and trenchantly, the tunnels land at the leadership’s (complicit) feet, as they are the ones who repeatedly, yes, repeatedly, supply the Brotherhood’s Hamas with the cement required to build the tunnels!
Israeli authorities allowed 1,000 tons of cement paid for by Qatar to enter the Hamas-enclave of Gaza on Thursday, officials said, in the first major step towards rebuilding the territory that was damaged in Hamas’s latest terror war against Israel last summer.
“Today 1,000 tons of cement paid for by Qatar entered the Gaza Strip for a project included in the scope of the reconstruction mechanism,” Israel’s coordinating body for government policy in the territories of Judea, Samaria and Gaza (COGAT) said in a statement, reports AFP.
“There are no fixed quantities (going in) on a daily basis. The quantities (delivered) are at the request of the Palestinian Authority in accordance with the needs of suppliers who are purchasing in Gaza,” it said.
Palestinian Arab officials confirmed the entry of cement, which they said included 175 trucks brought in through the Kerem Shalom goods crossing in southern Gaza.
It was the biggest quantity of building material to come into Gaza in one go since fighting ended in August.
The influx of cement comes despite the fact that Hamas used such humanitarian aid to build an extensive network of terrorist attack tunnels into Israel, and that it has been rebuilding it with cement transferred into Gaza by Israel since the war ended.
Despite the clear evidence that Hamas is using the materials for terrorist purposes, a Palestinian Authority (PA) official revealed earlier this month that Israel had lifted a longstanding ban on the import of dual-use Portland cement into Gaza.
The move came days after documents were leaked, revealing talks between Hamas and Israel for a five-year ceasefire by which Israel would ease restrictions.
BEYOND contemptible. Indeed, the leadership commits crimes against the majority Zionist public, not against those they are mandated to vanquish, as Israel’s enemies are wont to charge at every international forum!
BESIDES, whom do Israel’s leaders think they are fooling when they nauseatingly opine: trust us. Regardless, rest assured, every resultant death lands at PM Netanyahu’s doorstep, despite all the hoopla re his re-election.
SO as many rightfully celebrate PM Netanyahu’s win, it must be understood that the celebration on this end is not because “Bibi” has been a staunch, unflagging and moral leader. Not at all. However, the alternative, the bastardized name, the “Zionist” Union, was infinitely worse, as they are little more than bought and paid for leftist/Arabist whores, beholden to HUSSEIN Obama and their Euro-trash counterparts.
SIMPLY put, the choice for true Zionists was between worse and much worse, as the following vile sentiments from a “typical” leftist teacher demonstrates. Her hateful bile is emblematic of scores of the left’s supporters, and can be found here too by another ! leftist teacher. That foul.
AS excerpted (March 17, 2015) in this investigative journalist’s latest interview:
WOLFF BACHNER: And speaking of responsible world leaders, why isn’t the Prime Minster of Israel bringing up these serious issues with the nations involved in the peace process and especially with Obama and demanding an end to all military threats to Israel before Israel will negotiate again? Is he trying too hard to appease Obama and the various European talking heads, and by doing so, weakening Israel’s position even further in a peace process that is already an anti-Israeli charade?
ADINA KUTNICKI: It is this lock-step and debasing march which stopped him (during 9 years as PM, from 1996-1999 and 2009 -2015) from declaring victory over Hamas during the 2014 summer-long war, one which blanketed/blitzed the entire country with missile and rocket barrages. More indicting, instead of laying waste, years ago, to Iran’s mushrooming genocidal WMD program, he is still begging President Obama to lead the charge, knowing full well that he has no such intention. Chasing ghosts.
Inherently, he could have taken a page out of (the late) PM Menachem Begin’s playbook, when he defied President Carter and destroyed Iraq’s Osirak reactor. Now, as then, Washington issued threats to “cease and desist”, but one PM ignored said orders, while the other (continuously) caved. Statesmanship, or the lack thereof.
In the main, PM Netanyahu is best described as a “serial accommodator”, comparable to a badly battered wife who just can’t help herself from going back to her abuser, one last time, for more punishment. Now, others may tsk, tsk and opine: well, the POTUS is the big man in the arena, therefore, what can poor “Bibi” do but genuflect? Hogwash.
For the record, PM Menachem Begin didn’t have a problem executing what his mantle required of him; protecting Israel at ALL costs! Similarly, Israel’s first PM, David Ben-Gurion, gave Eisenhower the proverbial finger, when he launched a war in 1956 in concert with Britain and France against an increasingly belligerent Egypt. As always, Washington attempted to stay Israel’s hand. History repeats.
In furtherance to the above charge and indictment, whereas PM Ben-Gurion took on the U.S. when Israel was little more than a military pipsqueak, PM Netanyahu behaves as if Israel is a vassal state. This is the case even though he has at his disposal the most adept forces in the region, let alone technologically advanced. Hence, the question is not one of actual force strength, but one of inner and moral fortitude. Hmm….continue reading…
SIGNIFICANTLY, does the following, or doesn’t it, amount to a dirty (gas) deal between Israel’s leadership and Egypt’s Brotherhood spawn, Hamas: Haniyeh reveals Israel offering Gaza a gas pipeline!
INEVITABLY, just as the sun rises and sets, so will Hamas’s terror tunnels explode under the feet of Israel’s Gaza-belt southern residents. You got that? Ditto for the northern residents alongside the Lebanese border with Iran’s proxy, Hezbollah.
AGAIN, Israel’s political and military mouthpieces will feign shock… shock that such an explosively dangerous situation developed right under their very noses, all their denials notwithstanding!
LIARS…liars…pants on fire…bastards…reprobates…
