There is NO Way to WALL OUT TERRORISM!!

Admittedly, since I'm not home, I haven't read or heard much news. Yesterday someone mentioned to me that my State of Israel had announced they would wall out the terrorists, try to block the Arab terror tunnels by creating some science fiction type of underground wall so the terrorists can't tunnel into Israel.

Duh?!?

I can't imagine anything more ridiculous. When the "greens" protest the damage to the Land, fauna and flora they will have a good  point.

In terms of sheer size land scope it seems totally impossible.

And it won't stop terrorism at all. Again it's like the cutting of the brooms in the animated movie Fantasia.

To stop the Arab terrorism we must get in their mindset and not act so wimpy, apologetic and technological. It's like trying to combine bubbles with staplers, or making a "pile" of water, thinking it's like trash or rubble. You can't sweep water into a corner. Terror is a psychological mindset, a combination of sociopath, ideology, brainwashing.

It is terribly dangerous to project one's own mentality onto the terrorists, thinking that the logic or goodness that would convince you to do something would influence a terrorist. The truth is that it just shows our weakness and makes them stronger and more confident.

A wall is just something to bypass. We must defeat the terrorists militarily, psychologically and politically. Nothing else will do it!!

I agree with you 100%! (And I live in an often rocketed area!) Some decisions are so ridiculous they are laughable!! (Except for the fact that YOUR and MY tax dollars will fund this farce!

Thanks. Appreciate your opinion

Sorry, an underground wall does, admittedly, sound outlandish, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to it...

The fact is that while we see multiple tunnels going from Hamas run Gaza into Egypt, into Israel and, from one point in Gaza to another point in Gaza, aside from some very limited local tunneling we see no such thing in Hizballah run south Lebanon...

The reason isn't that Hizballah has no use for tunnels... The reason is geography... More specifically, geology... Whereas the land under the border area with south Lebanon consists of rock the land under Gaza consists of sand...

If Hizballah wanted to drill an attack tunnel from south Lebanon into Israeli territory they would have to resort to mechanized tunneling equipment... They can't do that without making telltales...

Hamas has no such problem... The ground in that area is relatively soft sand... It's rather easy to tunnel in that material... If Israel were to cut a trench in the ground along the border and fill it with rebar and concrete (effectively creating an underground wall) the Hamas would have 2 options:

1) Tunnel through the "underground wall" and set off easily created alarms...
2) Tunnel below the " underground wall" which would be a technically much harder and riskier thing to do...

So, while no wall can be 100% impermeable, an "underground wall" would increase Israel's security... And that's not something to sneeze at...

Also agree with you 100% Batya. The only way is total victory against our enemies.

It sounds like the next Iron Dome defense to put into place even as the Hamas Charter hasn't changed a bit and the attacks from Hamas continue. It's illogical to spend all that money and continue with these sham peace negotiations.

This furtive predawn crossing is part of a thriving smuggling industry that allows untold numbers of people to pass over, under, through or around what Israelis call the security barrier — for a price

The industry offers economic benefits for everyone involved: Palestinian workers earn double or quadruple the wages they can in the West Bank; Israeli contractors and restaurant owners pay less for illegal labor than for Palestinians with permits; and the smugglers collect $65 to $200 for each person that passes. Punishment for those caught is generally being sent back to the other side.

The system punches a hole in Israel’s system for regulating Palestinians’ access to work inside Israel, and has security implications: Attackers like the two Palestinian men who fatally shot four people this month at a Tel Aviv cafe sneak through as well.
