Arutz Sheva: The Fatah movement, headed by Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas, on Monday issued a statement condemning what it called “the Israeli crime directed against our people in Gaza, which resulted in the deaths of eight civilians and the wounding of 14 others.”
Fatah claimed that the destruction of the tunnel was “part of the policy of fleeing adopted by successive Israeli governments in an attempt to evade the corruption cases at the expense of the blood of the Palestinian people.”
Earlier on Monday, Hamas’s military wing also condemned Israel and said it believed the destruction of the tunnel was “an attempt by the enemy to impose new rules by committing crimes and attacks against our land, our jihad fighters and our people.” more …
Opinion: In the theater of the absurd which is a reenactment of the ancient turmoil between Jacob and Esau, Jacob reassured his brother Esau that the destruction of the terror tunnel (that Esau designed to kill innocent Israeli civilians) was a defensive action against a violation of sovereignty. That the explosion’s purpose was only to disable the tunnel and prevent its use.
Jacob essentially apologized in the same way that Netanyahu apologized to Erdogan for the Turkish Mavi Marmara attempt to break the Gaza blockade in 2010.
“You shall not abhor and Edomite …” Deuteronomy 23:7
IDF Spokesman Brigadier General Ronen Manelis explained: “We did not use any illegal or unknown means,” Manelis said, stressing that there had been no intention to kill senior officials.
Only in Israel:
- The dead senior Hamas officials were terrorists
- There is no Israeli condemnation for them to be in the tunnel
- There is no international condemnation of Hamas’ terror tunnels
Where else on this planet can this happen?
