If you were wondering what Hamas was planning to do with the tunnels it was digging between Gaza and Israel, here’s the answer. They were planning a massive massacre, to be carried out on the holiday of Rosh Hashana (in about two months). Remember what happened to the Fogels? Multiply that by a thousand.
Egypt, by the way, has been a good friend. They’ve destroyed a number of tunnels (though their tunnels are different than ours; theirs are smuggling tunnels and the ones we’re destroying are meant for kidnapping, running, and hiding) between Gaza and Sinai, and have killed quite a few terrorists. Obviously, they have personal interest in doing this – it’s not just for us. But it sure helps.
