GAZA - Hamas Tunnel Under Child’s Room

Arno Froese

“The troops located a tunnel shaft inside a child’s room, and a butcher’s knife next to it. In addition, the troops identified six terrorists near a school in the area of the troops.”

Images released by the IDF show troops operating in the dense urban environment of Rafah. Images also show the cache of weapons, explosives and other equipment troops retrieved during the operation.

The IDF said a number of steps were taken before [the] strike to reduce the risk of harming uninvolved civilians during the strike, “including conducting aerial surveillance, and additional intelligence information.”

The post was accompanied by an aerial photograph pinpointing rooms on two upper floors of the building, which the IDF said were the “locations of the terrorists.”, 6 June 2024

Arno's Commentary

What is so sad about the Gaza war is not only that many civilians were killed and murdered in Israel, but that a large percentage of Gaza’s Arab Palestinians sympathize with the Hamas movement. Thus the question, what does Hamas stand for? The Wilson Center reveals the “Doctrine of Hamas”:

Since its creation in December 1987, Hamas has invoked militant interpretations of Islam to spearhead a Sunni extremist movement committed to destroying Israel.

Complete rule based on the Islamic religion is the cornerstone of Hamas’ doctrine:

Hamas is an Arabic acronym for the Islamic Resistance Movement. It has called on members of the other two Abrahamic faiths—Judaism and Christianity—to accept Islamic rule in the Middle East., 20 October 2023

While publishing only a fraction of the doctrine of Hamas, it becomes apparent that there is no room for compromise, dialog, or discussion. 

Another excerpt states: 

In 2006, Hamas ran openly for the first time in legislative elections and won the largest number of seats—over Arafat’s Fatah and other secular parties—in the Palestinian Authority’s legislature. It wrested physical control of Gaza away from the PA a year later, thereby cementing its political and military control of an area. 

The very doctrine of Hamas’ public declaration is its intention to destroy the state of Israel, while endorsing unconditional war to that purpose.

Israel’s future? “And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God” (Amos 9:15).
