Terror Tunnels Of Gaza

Many of us know about the terror tunnels from Gaza to Israel, but I think understanding the scale eludes us. Sean Hannity visited Israel to see the tunnels first hand.

What amazed me is how deep these tunnels are underground. This picture shows how far down Palestinians dig to build these tunnels:

So clearly, destroying the tunnels is not simply a matter of dropping a missile to collapse them. It would take massive excavations just to expose the tunnels.

And as poverty-stricken as Gazans claim to be, they have managed, not only to go through extraordinary measures to dig these tunnels, but also use incredible amounts of concrete - building material pro-Palestinian activists says is scarce because of the blockade imposed by Israel:

when the isrialis find a tunnel they should...
1) boobytrap the damn thing about half way in
2) wait
3) after the second or third time hamas blows themselves up...admit..."yea it was us...and we ain't telling how many more we have found"

2 It seems to me that a collapsed tunnel would be very easy to re-dig because it would be loose material. I am sure the Israelis have thought of this, and come up with an inventive solution.

Meanwhile, I am please to see that the King of Saudi Arabia knows a war crime when he sees it.
