In Israel, Hamas is said to have planned a huge terrorist attack that would taken place on September 24, 2014, which is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, some fear a modern holocaust may occur as Hamas supporters all over the world, including the United States, have begun persecuting the Jews by attacking their businesses and creating chaos in the streets. Rioters in France were heard yelling "gas the Jews" and the number of Jews immigrating to Israel has increased by 400 percent in recent times. The right for Israel to defend itself has also been debated, and some claim the civilian causalities in the war are unacceptable, although other reports show that the Hamas are using ambulances filled with children in order to move around.
According to the Gatestone Institute, "there are two Gazas, one above ground and one below ground: an underground terrorist city." These network of tunnels are so extensive that retired General James T. Conway wrote in the Wall Street Journal that they were designed for a large purpose:
"Unlike tunnels that I had seen during the Iraq war that were designed for smuggling, this Hamas tunnel was designed for launching murder and kidnapping raids. The 3-mile-long tunnel was reinforced with concrete, lined with telephone wires, and included cabins unnecessary for infiltration operations but useful for holding hostages."Hamas' Gaza strip tunnel system was apparently being built up for a massive terrorist operation. Yael Eckstein, senior vice president of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, described what Hamas had originally planned for the Jewish New Year in 2014:
"The IDF has arrested Hamas terrorists who have divulged gruesome details on a planned terror attack of immeasurable proportions. Hamas has been planning for over 10 years for this attack which was going to take place on Rosh Hashanah 2014; two months from now. They built an underground tunnel from Gaza directly into Israel with 16 exit points, and on Rosh Hashanah they were going to send over 20 terrorists - dressed as IDF soldiers - out of each one of the exits. Hundreds of terrorists dressed as IDF soldiers were going to infiltrate every town and community in southern Israel, and commit massacres and kidnappings like we've never seen before. God has truly protected His people, at the very last moment before the storm.The people of Israel are celebrating the many miracles that God has been doing for His people. Many spiritual leaders say that our work is to praise God for these miracles and appreciate them; otherwise the miracles will cease, God forbid, and we will be left to 'nature'."As an example of one of these alleged miracles, a writer for the Jewish Telegraph named Barbara Ordman claims Hamas terrorists are complaining about God changing the direction of rockets in mid-air. Critics of Ordman on various blogs accuse the writer of either referencing a rumor or relying on a source that quotes a bogus CNN interview, but the exact quote given by Ordman is completely different in wording although the overall message is the same.
In any case, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu informed his cabinet of the foiled Hamas terrorist plot, which they learned of from interrogating prisoners captured during Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza strip. As of this morning, Israel agreed to a 12 hour ceasefire in hopes that Hamas may agree to end hostilities.
