JERUSALEM – Arms-smuggling is just the start. The tunnels dug into the sandstone, to bring goods from Egypt into Gaza have become a central component of both sides’ economies. Everything from food to medicine to cigarettes to livestock to, yes, weapons are snuck back-and-forth. Israeli human rights group B’Tselem provided these exclusive pictures of Gaza’s underground economy to Danger Room. Take a look:
In May 2007 then Congressman Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) now Chief of Staff for Obama Administration, spoke at DC’s annual Stand Up For a Safe America event sponsored by the Brady Center where he said that if any American citizen’s name appeared on the Transportation Security Agency’s No-Fly List then they should not be allowed to exercise their right to own a firearm.
It sounds reasonable enough, especially since time has shown us that the American psyche has not yet healed since the attacks of September 11, 2001. To illustrate this point, I was sent an e-mail forward of a new gun that is cleverly disguised as a common cell phone. The sender of the e-mail tried to make the point that people should not complain about the loss of liberties while being harrassed by the TSA during travel.
But back to the no-fly list. If you have followed current events, you already know that the government intelligence agency’s lists contain many Americans who are not terrorists, including children and even US senators. So Rahm Emanuel, whose own father was a member of a Jewish terrorist organization that bombed the King David Hotel in 1948, wants the executive branch to be the decider on who can and who cannot own a firearm, based on a fraudulent government blacklist. And it just so happens that Emanuel, his puppet President Obama and Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder are all notorious enemies of the 2nd Amendment.
Here in America, there seems to be quite a bit of confusion as to why the rest of the world was outraged at the Israeli Defense Force’s recent incursion into Gaza which resulted in the deaths of 1300 dead Palestinians. We Americans can’t understand why the rest of the world can’t see that is that Israel is constantly under bombardment from rocket attacks launched by evil terrorists. While the thousands of rockets launched by Hamas rarely kill anyone, many Jews suffer horribly from shock and Iran is currently providing Hamas militants new weapons to wipe Israel off the map. In an effort to expose the horrors that Israelis are forced to endure on a daily basis, I have put together this brief pictorial review of the ongoing struggle of the IDF against Arab terrorists.
Here we see a suicide bombing attempt thwarted by two IDF soldiers at a Gaza checkpoint. Military checkpoints and limiting terrorist mobility are just one of the methods used by the IDF that protects terrorists from killing innocent Jews.
Here we see an extremely rare sight: a tense and dangerous face off between an Israeli soldier and an infamous and defiant terrorist. My sources in Gaza informed me that the soldier was able to save hundreds of Jews on that day by preventing a terror attack.
While some terrorists are bold, most terrorists are known to be cowards. When confronted in a face to face encounter on even ground with the brave IDF, they usually react in this manner.
All Americans are aware that terrorists use innocent civilians as humans shields, but some have never seen video or photos of the terrorists caught perpetrating this irreprehensible act. Here we see two terrorists blatantly using a woman as a human shield. This is outrageous! Where is the UN and the rest of the world’s condemnation of these war crimes!?!
And where did the IDF learn how to fight these terrorists?
