Amir Tsarfati:

Be sure that Arab leaders are not as enthusiastic about a Palestinian state solution as the US administration is. Why? They have their past to lean on -

In the early 1950s, the Palestinian leadership collaborated with the Muslim Brotherhood, terrorizing Egypt, their host country.

In the mid-1960s, the Palestinian leadership terrorized Syria, their host country.

In 1968-70, the Palestinian leadership triggered a civil war in Jordan, attempting to topple their host Hashemite regime.

In 1970-82, the Palestinian leadership instigated a series of civil wars in Lebanon, aiming to take over their host country.

In 1990, the Palestinian leadership collaborated with Saddam Hussein’s invasion and plunder of Kuwait, which was for decades the most generous Arab host of 400,000 Palestinians.

HAMAS TUNNEL SYSTEM EXPOSED - 1300 TUNNELS | SPANNING 500km | 80 METERS UNDERGROUND.

Recent Situational Reports exchanged between the U.S. and Israel, obtained by our team, have provided unprecedented insights into the tunnel system beneath Gaza.

The IDF estimates there are 1,300 tunnels spanning 500 km beneath Gaza. The tunnel system has multiple levels.

Level One: Entry and launch locations inside buildings for personnel and rocket launches.
Level Two: Reinforced passageways for rocket transport and maneuvering.
Level Three: Houses the Oxygen Generation and Air Movement system generator.
Level Four: Meeting and sleeping rooms for Hamas fighters.
Level Five: Main Gaza Metro connecting city blocks/sections.
Level Six: Storage for weapons, ammunition, and fuel, with doors always closed for safety.
Level Seven: Additional storage and sleeping rooms.
Level Eight: Command and Control Center for Hamas, connected via a hard landline, with a quick escape tunnel to the Gaza Metro for senior leaders' evacuation.

This tunnel system allows for quick movements, such as hiding after launching a rocket.

The size of the network indicates many years of building at an extremely high cost.

Al-Jazeera, a favorite TV channel among Hamas terrorists, interviewed a Palestinian in the Gaza hospital. He questioned, "Why is the resistance (Hamas) hiding among us? Why don’t they go to hell and hide there?" The journalist abruptly cut him off.

It appears that Israel is ready to take over A Shifa hospital, following the White House statement that the “hospital” according to US intelligence is a cover for Hamas underground headquarters.

Washington DC: Jew-hating bus drivers at Dulles left 900 Jews stranded at Dulles Airport, refusing to transport them from their planes to the terminal.

Operational Update:
IDF forces are carrying out a precise and targeted operation against Hamas in a specified area in the Shifa Hospital, based on intelligence information and an operational necessity.

The IDF is conducting a ground operation in Gaza to defeat Hamas and rescue our hostages. Israel is at war with Hamas, not with the civilians in Gaza.

The IDF forces include medical teams and Arabic speakers, who have undergone specified training to prepare for this complex and sensitive environment, with the intent that no harm is caused to the civilians being used by Hamas as human shields.

In recent weeks, the IDF has publicly warned time and again that Hamas' continued military use of the Shifa hospital jeopardizes its protected status under international law, and enabled ample time to stop this unlawful abuse of the hospital. Yesterday, the IDF conveyed to the relevant authorities in Gaza once again that all military activities within the hospital must cease within 12 hours. Unfortunately, they did not.

The IDF has also facilitated wide-scale evacuations of the hospital and maintained regular dialogue with hospital authorities.

We call upon all Hamas terrorists present in the hospital to surrender.

AL-SHIFA HOSPITAL IS NOW UNDER THE FULL CONTROL OF THE ISRAELI ARMY.

The IDF is also reportedly trying to get access to the Hamas complex below the hospital.

Amir Tsarfati:

Yesterday there was the largest pro-Israel rally in the history of America.

No slurs
No violence
No death chants
No vandalism
No curses

This march tells a lot about who wants peace and who wants chaos.
Choose.
.....
For the first time: the IDF calls on the residents of some neighborhoods in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip to evacuate their homes.  In leaflets distributed by the Air Force, the IDF calls on the residents of the eastern neighborhoods of Khan Yunis: "For your safety, you must evacuate your place of residence immediately and evacuate to one of the known shelters."
The IDF stated in a proclamation: "Hamas' actions force the IDF to act against it in the area where you live." This is a dramatic move that indicates the expected expansion of the IDF's operation.
.....

Hamas uniforms were discarded at the hospital before the escape.  Advanced technological equipment was located.  Weapons were found.
.....
Guess what ?  A few weeks ago the Scottish first minister, Humza Haroon Yousaf, a son of a Pakistani Muslim family, showed empathy for the situation in Gaza, (I can’t remember his empathy to the victims of the October 7th massacre) and expressed his will to get Gazan refugees.
Israel decided to call his bluff and contacted the Scottish government with the intention to send Gazans that want to move.
Guess why? The Scottish government suddenly wasn’t happy about it. The usual hypocrisy!
.....

IDF PREPARE TO STORM HAMAS' BOOBY-TRAPPED TUNNEL LABYRINTH

- The network is estimated to run to a total of 300 miles and is so extensive it has been described as a 'metro system' that is bigger than the London Underground.
- 85-year-old Israeli hostage Yocheved Lifshitz, released last month, said it 'looked like a spider's web.'
- For years, thousands of people in Gaza have found work in them, and tens of thousands more, from drivers to shopkeepers, have benefited from the work they provided.
- The tunnels range from narrow corridors of 6ft by 3ft to vast passageways that can take cars and even trucks.
- They are swaddled in concrete and well-lit; they contain command centres, ammunition depots and arms factories.
- They are used to launch attacks on Israel and also to smuggle in everything from vehicles to long-range weaponry.

"The biggest threat is to the Gazan population because all of these tunnel systems are covered by civilians. They are literally human shields." - Israeli Minister

"The Hamas terror machine is a network of tunnels under Gaza, primarily in urban areas. It is totally formidable. You cannot destroy Hamas's military machine without dealing with its subterranean terror network. That is why we sent our ground forces in." - Senior Israeli Official

"They have turned huge swathes of the Strip into legitimate military targets. These sons of b****** have intentionally put their tunnels under houses, mosques and hospitals to maximise civilian casualties. It's not just cynical, it's pure evil." - Former Israeli Defense Official

Amir Tsarfati's e-mail newsletter snippets:

Shalom from Israel, a land where God’s hand continues to move in marvelous ways! It has certainly been a dark time in my country, likely the darkest since its inception in 1948. I, and most of my fellow citizens, have been deeply immersed in all the reports of the horrors that took place on October 7, 2023, and in the ensuing chaos. When there is so much bad news, it is easy to lose the truth that there is good news, also.

The mindset of Hamas going into this attack was that once Hezbollah, Iran, Yemen, and all the other radical Islamist states and organizations saw their great success they’d want in on the action. If for some reason they didn’t, then no problem. Hamas still had its human shields in place in Gaza. They would just retreat like they did after every attack. Israel would lob a few bombs in, then they’d stop. Europe, the U.S., and the rest of the Middle East wouldn’t let Israel do anymore. Besides, Israel was so fractured internally at the time, how could they possibly respond?

But Hamas overplayed its hand.  Hamas trusted in their allies, they trusted in their tunnels, they trusted in their human shields. God proved He is greater than all those factors.

Israel was warned, “If you attack Gaza, you will have thousands of dead soldiers.” So far, we have about 40, and our country mourns every one of them. But despite our losses, our nation is determined to press on. Yesterday, I read a letter from the father of fallen soldier Gilad Nehemiah to our government and military leaders. The grieving man wrote, “When you started this war, you said that ‘there will be prices to be paid’, and indeed we paid. We, and many other good families, paid with the blood of our best sons. I call and demand of you, do not stop.

Now the tunnels are exposed, and there are a mass of people who are without homes because of their own leadership. Never before has Hamas been hated so much by their own people, because many of them recognize their situation.

There was a plan devised in Tehran for Hamas, Hezbollah, and other Iranian proxy militias like the Houthis of Yemen to carry out a coordinated attack on Israel. Wanting the glory for themselves, Hamas ignored the others and launched the attack on their own. Their thinking was that everyone else would jump in when they saw their success. . . . The great plot by Iran’s axis of evil was thwarted by Hamas’s arrogance and impatience. One more evidence of the hand of God.

Israel’s intention is to remain in Gaza.
Hamas didn’t consider that. They never thought that Israel would say, “We let you have that land, and look how you repaid us. It’s time we took it back.” This will be the first time in the era of the modern state of Israel that we’ve annexed land back to ourselves. Hamas intended to weaken us. Instead, they are responsible for our strengthening and our expansion. This is a huge morale killer for Hamas.

This is not the Ezekiel 38 War. The United States is standing with us, which will not be true in that future war. When today’s war is over, we will not need fences because Hamas will be eliminated. We will know who our enemies are, and we will also see the rapid increase of our friends. There will also be a growing number of Jews returning to their homeland. As they see the increasing antisemitism in Europe and America, many Jews will realize that Israel is their only safe option. It will be like a second exodus. People will leave the nations they’ve been exiled to for generations and will return home to their Promised Land.

Our greatest prayer is that through all this, many will come to Christ.

Israel moves Dead Sea Scrolls to bunkers:

The Israeli government has moved many artifacts and museum pieces to bunkers. This is the first time this protocol has been initiated since the 1991 Gulf War.

“Even if there’s a very small possibility [of damage], we don’t play around — we don’t take chances,” said Doron Lurie, senior curator and chief conservator at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.  “We’ve guarded them like our own kids,” he said of the priceless works.

The Tel Aviv Museum also has stored away works by famed modern artist Rothko, such as his “Number 24,” as well as the renowned “Portrait of Friederike Maria Beer,” a 1916 masterpiece painted by Gustav Klimt just two years before his death.

The museum is also storing works by Georg Kolbe, Leonora Carrington as well as other important artists.

Hagit Maoz, curator of the Shrine of the Book at Jerusalem’s Israel Museum, said at least eight display cases there are empty after pieces of the Dead Sea Scrolls were removed for safekeeping.

“To take off an exhibition is something that usually is not done because we trust the building, we trust the safety of the showcases. But this is a different situation, so we have to act accordingly,” Maoz said.

“These works of art have experienced war, some of them survived World War II,” said museum director Tania Coen-Uzzielli. “We are custodians for a short time, and we need to protect them, to protect them for posterity and for history.”

Nurith Goshen, the curator of Chalcolithic and Bronze Age archaeology, said her museum also enacted the war protocol and created a list of what should go in its bunker.
