Debkafile: “Israel resorted Tuesday night, May 26, to its old routine response to rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip by the aerial bombardment of four “terrorist” targets. Once again, Hamas hurriedly removed its personnel from the targeted facilities in time to escape casualties. For Israel it was an opportunity missed.
The first Palestinian long-range Grad rocket attack since last summer’s Israeli operation in Gaza was a chance to go for really potent terrorist infrastructure, such as the new tunnels the Palestinians are again running under the border.”
Opinion: Since the rockets have started flying, the tunnels must be near ready.
An April 14, 2015 report from the Times of Israel said this: “Hamas has begun using heavy machinery and engineering tools to accelerate the excavation of attack tunnels leading from the Gaza Strip under the Israeli border, sources in the Palestinian enclave told the Times of Israel.
The equipment, the sources said, includes small bulldozers with the ability to maneuver in tight spaces. From the Israeli side of the border, larger tractors are clearly visible above the ground as the machines prepare the tunnel entries.”
On March 6, 2015, President Obama announced support for a Palestinian state in retaliation for Israel re-electing Prime Minister Netanyahu. And just last week Pope Francis welcomed one of the unelected presidents of the Palestinian/Hamas Unity government to the Vatican and pledged support for Palestinian statehood.
The leaders of both the US and Vatican have violated the Abrahamic Covenant of Genesis 12:3, and judgment will surely follow.
