Update 7 August 2014: The 72-hour truce is now about 4 hours into its third and final 24-hour period. By all current indications the war in Gaza against HAMAS and their fellow terrorists will resume tomorrow. In simple terms, Israel presented its permanent albeit heavily laden conditional ceasefire proposal which HAMAS promptly rejected along with an extension of the current ceasefire. Additionally, there is also no doubt that the IDF failed to eliminate all of the terror tunnels in Gaza; HAMAS and the other jihadists remain at many of their firing positions to resume the war tomorrow.
Another thing to understand is that kidnapping and murder of three youths in Israel by HAMAS led to the events which precipitated Operation Protective Edge. As it turns out OPE was, or still is, essentially a pre-emptive war that has saved hundreds if not thousands of Israeli lives. Captured HAMAS terrorists have told their Israeli interrogators that HAMAS had planned a massive terror attack to coincide with Rosh Hashana on September 24. That attack would have seen many treams of terrorists emerge from the tunnels in Israel with the goal to kill as many Israelis as possible. Israel's leaders now more fully understand the scope of the planned HAMAS attack because they now more fully understand the extent of HAMAS tunnel network. When this war began Israeli intelligence had no clue as to the full extent of the network of tunnels. Now they more fully appreciate what Hezbollah has been doing up north based upon the tunneling technology derived from North Korea and Iran.
And speaking of the Temple Mount... thank KenB for the image below which I have titled The Hand of God on Temple Mount.
This is what much of these pre-70th Week wars are all about, setting the conditions under which Israel will rebuild the Temple on Mount Moriah.
NOTE: The SITREP with the image of the two young Arab boys being hung up by their shirt collars allegedly in Gaza by an adult male has been deleted out of necessity. After exercising due diligence once I found evidence of photoshopping within the image it was further determined with 100% accuracy that the image had nothing to do with the current war in Gaza and was, in fact, several years old.
