The Jerusalem Center of Public Affairs in Israel has published an extensive investigation into operation Protective Edge, or also known as the Third Gaza War- in the summer of 2014. One of the authors of the report claimed that the war averted a major disaster for Israel. During the war, the Hamas had planned a mega-terror attack that was scheduled to be carried out on Rosh HaShannah, which is Jewish New Year. Scenarios were described in reports that there would be hundreds of heavily armed Hama fighters spill out into Israel in the dead of the night and within just 10 minutes be in a position to infiltrate several sparsely populated and lightly guarded Israeli communities. The terrorists would have sought out to kill and kidnap as many Israelis as they could.
What was supposed to be a joyful day for the Israelis turned out to be a disaster. It is absolutely crazy to see what goes out in the world outside of our small town in North Carolina, and then even outside of the United States. People decide to kill off thousands of people....for what reason? The article states that the Hama terrorists had set up attack tunnels designed to run UNDER the Israeli border with the capacity to facilitate thousands of armed terrorists on a mission of mass slaughter against Israeli's heartland. Not only did the Hamas have these tunnels built, but when the Israel's found out and destroyed the tunnels one by one, the Hamas AGAIN fought to build alternative attack tunnels. I just don't understand how people can have so much hate in their heart to wake up one morning and decide to kill innocent populations.
