Many Hamas Tunnels Built With Cement Supplied By Israel: Is World Pressure To Blame?


It is ironic that many of the tunnels that the IDF is now destroying were constructed by Hamas, using building materials and cement supplied by Israel. The Times of Israel website reported last January that Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon had approved the entry of roughly 1,000 tons of cement and building materials into Gaza. Israel had been supplying these types of materials spasmodically over the years depending on its assessment of the security risk. In September 2013, it resumed allowing construction materials into Gaza, but cut off the supplies a month later after the discovery of a “terror tunnel.” The passageway, which crossed from Gaza into Israel, contained explosives, and was constructed using some 500 tons of cement, according to a military spokesman. tunnel entrance The Ma’an News Agency, a Palestinian website, confirmed the existence of the tunnel, describing it as a “sophisticated tunnel running 450 meters into Israel and intended as a springboard for militant attacks.” Haim Yelin, the head of the Israeli local council, said that he had been taken inside for an inspection. He told Israeli Army Radio, “This tunnel, which looks like the New York subway, is apparently intended to kidnap soldiers or for some other kind of terrorist attack. It is impressively executed, with concrete supports.” The Israeli news website Ynet said that the tunnel was equipped with railway tracks and lighting, and quoted chief military spokesman Yoav Mordechai as calling it “one of the most advanced terror tunnels to be uncovered in recent years.” So, why did Israel make the apparently illogical — even suicidal — decision to supply Hamas with materials that would indirectly result in the death of Israeli citizens? cement for Gaza Sadly, this is not an idle claim because The Times Of Israel has reported in the last hour: “Two IDF soldiers, Major (res.) Amotz Greenberg, 45, and Adar Barsano, 20, were killed this morning when Hamas terrorists infiltrated Israeli territory through a tunnel from the central Gaza Strip and ambushed a military vehicle patrolling on the Israeli side of the border.” They are the first two soldiers in the current conflict to die because of a tunnel; it is unlikely they will be the last. So, to repeat the question: Why did Israel supply Hamas knowing what they would do? The simple answer — international pressure! The world — with the enthusiastic support of the media — has long bought into the Hamas narrative about the deprivation and hardship of Palestinians living in the Gaza strip. Hamas spokesmen have learned from Joseph Goebbels the propaganda tactic of “The Big Lie,” meaning if the same lie is repeated over and over again, it eventually becomes the accepted version. Israel has always permitted any goods or materials to enter Gaza, with the exception of items which could be used for terrorist purposes. Eventually, Israel was coerced into relaxing restrictions on building materials on a promise that they would only be used for specifically identified private or commercial purposes, and only under United Nations supervision. It’s not likely that the Israeli government, or defense establishment, ever truly bought into that guarantee, but there are times when the pressure is just too great to resist. Apart from the situation with the tunnels, which Israel is now frantically trying to destroy, no one watching any of the world media reports on the conflict would have the slightest idea that goods are still entering Gaza by the truckload every day. The Arutz Sheva website reported: “Despite the ongoing rocket fire by Gaza terrorists, Israel has not halted the entry of trucks into Gaza — and on Thursday, some 200 trucks carrying food and “basic supplies” entered Gaza. The government said that the trucks were allowed to pass through for “humanitarian purposes.” trucks to Gaza It should be noted that the trucks enter Gaza through the Kerem Shalom crossing point; one of the tunnels destroyed by the IDF was located right next to the crossing. All the workers at the crossing are Israeli, and they put their lives in danger every day in order for goods to get through. Once the current conflict is over, much of Gaza will have to be re-built, so Hamas already knows that it will have plenty of Israeli supplied cement with which to replace the tunnels!

    Many will remain skeptical in regard to the existence of this Plan in spite of what is in front of their eyes. These people would probably like to see proofs as letters, videotapes or confessions on Live TV. Instead one should connect all the acquired certainties from the past events to recognize the clear Direction already well defined by this Plot. All these circumstances should be more than enough evidence for all those who have eyes to see.

    The media definition of "conspiracy theory" is only there to discredit what is already in front of your eyes.

    It is the secret rise of the New World Order.

    The New World Order is precisely a Greater State of Israel that extends to the whole World, as written in the Bible, but a prophecy like this would face massive resistance from all populations if its Plan were exposed and remain unfulfilled without the use of Deception.

    Israel was a concept before it became a State and today is a State like no other. In fact it is the only Country in the World that does not define its borders in its Constitution and is now ready to expand its territory through the use of any mean.

    There is one single Solution.

    The biggest lie could show its color only in front of its opposite.

    Why did America give the missile defensiv dome to Isreal, rendering the Palestinians unable to defend their selves against Isreali slaughter. If the defensive dome had been given to Poland good chance Russia would be thinking twice about shooting airplanes out of the sky.

    Hamas has fired over 1,500 missiles at Israel in a act of aggression. Yet you wonder how Hamas will defend itself. This is yet another example of a moron from the left who does not have logic within her grasp.

    Israel oppresses and dehumanizes the Palestinians just like Hitler did to the Jews before killing them.The real issue is 65 years of occupation and blockade. No peace can return till the occupation ends

    Peace will come with the death of Hamas.


    Why do you defend those who hide behind women and children?

    Add to that; why does Hamas persist in using Palestinian civilians as shields?

    Isn't cement used to build i don't know…EVERYTHING? Like since the Roman times? This article is saying cement should NOT be supplied?

    This is why war is not to be fought nicely…you don't rebuild what was destroyed in your enemies country or help with materials or money… they fix it and perhaps learn that the fight was not worth it…

    That is one crazy looking googly eyed dude swinging over the entrance hole. Wonder how far he would go if they set off explosives in that hole.

    Recon Man The score is 450 Palestinian dead and fewer than 10 Israeli. Yeah Hamas is a very powerful military force intent on killing all the Israelis and we all believe that!
