Osama Gil-laden in Jerusalem
Avi Dichter, former head of the Israel Security Agency and homefront defense minister, declared earlier this week that “there is no Iron Dome against the terror tunnels.” The message is devastatingly clear; the Jewish people are now attacked from below – the bottom front is bare and widely open. This development is regarded in Israel as a serious intelligence blunder. It needs to be addressed immediately. More than a few Israeli politicians and commentators call for a probe of the failure of Israel intelligence once Operation Protective Edge comes to its conclusion.
In the last decade Israel has surrounded itself with walls of security. The Jewish sky is also covered by a dome of iron. But the promised soil that waited for two millennia to be redeemed by its true and only owners, is threatened to be plundered, once again, by a new wave of Gazan insurgents who dig their way into our heartland land from in beneath.
But the Palestinians were naïve if they, even for one second, believed that the Jewish Genius was going to be intimidated by this new form of Islamo-Tunnelism. The Israeli defense ministry was quick to gather some ideas. Earlier this week it presented the cabinet with a few operative solutions.
