They’re a vital lifeline. They’re a potential death trap. They’re a bonanza for profiteers. They symbolize Palestinians’ will to survive. It shows their determination to do so against all odds.
Decades of Israeli viciousness haven’t deterred them. They’re not about to quit now.
Besieged Gazans struggle to survive. Tunnel supplied goods are essential. After Egypt’s military ousted Mohamed Morsi, conditions went from bad to worse.
His supporters threatened reprisals. Gazans have no involvement. Hamas was wrongfully blamed for clashes between unidentified militants and Egyptian forces.
According to an earlier IDF statement:
“The Egyptian military activity in the Sinai is coordinated with Israeli security elements and authorized at the most senior levels in Israel, in order to contend with security threats in the Sinai that pose a threat to both Israel and Egypt.”
At issue is inflicting more punishment on besieged Gazans. Rafah crossing is closed much of the time. Palestinians needing urgent medical care unavailable in Gaza can’t get it.
Anti-Gazan sentiment peaked after Morsi’s election. Egypt’s military, opposition political elements and supportive media exploited his perceived alliance with Hamas.
They held him responsible for Sinai violence. They wrongfully blamed Palestinians. They called them Muslim Brotherhood militants.
Israel, its media, and PA officials hyped the Big Lie. They did it for self-serving reasons. Egypt cracked down hard on Gaza. Goods permitted to enter dropped sharply.
Restricted amounts of food, fuel, medical supplies, and other essentials entered through Rafah crossing. Gaza’s tunnel economy slowed dramatically.
Operators fearer detection. For months, Egypt destroyed hundreds of tunnels. Major General Ahmed Ibrahim heads Egypt’s Border Guards Force.
Since January 2011, he estimates 1,055 tunnels destroyed. Armed forces and military intelligence work cooperatively. They monitor over 13 kilometers around Rafah’s border with Egypt.
They use equipment to detect tunnel activity. When found, bulldozers move in destructively. In December 2012, National Geographic headlined “The Tunnels of Gaza,” saying:
As long as they worked in tunnels, Samir and his brother Yussef suspected death might follow. “When Yussef did die,” he succumbed much as they imagined.
It was “under a crushing hail of earth.” Both brothers were on a night shift. They were doing maintenance.
Samer was near the tunnel’s entrance. Yussef and two co-workers were well inside.
“They were trying to wedge a piece of plywood into the wall to shore it up when it began collapsing.”
It did so a second time. Yussef disappeared. Samir heard crashing sounds. He entered the tunnel crawling.
He and others began digging. The tunnel began collapsing again. “We didn’t know what to do,” said Samir. “We felt helpless.”
He spoke about beginning tunnel work years earlier. “I didn’t want to, but I had no choice,” he said.
“You can die at any moment. ” Some tunnels are properly built, maintained and ventilated. Others aren’t.
Tunnel collapses, explosions, air strikes, Egyptian bulldozings, and fires happen often. Gazans call it “a way to paradise or death.”
Most tunnel workers have injuries or health problems. Yussef developed chronic respiratory illness.
Samir said tunnel work feels “like a bad omen present all the time. We always expect something bad to happen.” Often it does.
Gazan heroes include tunnel workers. Those who perish are honored. Yussef’s poster read:
“The sons of the mukhtar share condolences with the family in the martyrdom of the hero Yussef.”
Tunnels sustain life. Most are nearly a third of a mile long. They’re around six stories below ground. They cost $50,000 or more to build.
Months of intense labor are required to do so. Israel wants them destroyed. It bombs them. It kills innocent civilians struggling to survive.
It prioritizes Palestinian suffering. It does so ruthlessly. It’s lawless siege bears full responsibility. Egypt’s complicity shares it.
Gaza’s underground economy isn’t new. It began in 1982. Following the 1979 Egyptian/Israeli peace treaty, Rafah was split.
Part was in Gaza, the rest in Egypt. Israel began demolishing tunnels. Early ones were built beneath homes.
New tunnels followed. Operations continued. Israel established a buffer zone along Rafah border areas.
From 2000 – 2004, around 1,700 homes were destroyed. After Hamas won January 2006 elections, embargo conditions began.
In mid-2007, siege was imposed. Egypt cooperated. It still does. Gaza’s tunnel economy substitutes. It’s a vital subsistence lifeline.
Thousands of Palestinians work building them. Thousands more provide engineering, transportation and other services.
Tunnels provide two-thirds of Gaza’s consumer goods. According to one Palestinian engineer:
“We did not choose to use the tunnels. But it was too hard for us to stand still during the siege and expect war and poverty.”
Gaza reflects the heart of Palestinian resistance. Risking death below ground reflects it.
Tunnels supply most materials used for public works projects. Overall operations supply essentials vital to survive.
They include food, livestock, flour, milk, cheese, cooking oil, small generators, kerosene heaters, and virtually everything else most people take for granted.
Rafah crossing is the only above ground point of entry or egress. It’s ill-equipped. It’s often closed.
It’s way inadequate to service 1.7 million Gazans. It can’t provide all their needs. Tunnel economy operations supply most of them. It’s a lifeline too vital to lose.
Construction is hazardous. Five to 12 men work 12 hour shifts six days a week. Operations continue round the clock.
Workers earn about $50 a shift. They do so six stories below ground. Conditions are chaotic. They’re hazardous.
Dim lightbulbs flicker. Radio traffic blares. Dust-covered workers haul sacks out on sleds.
Tunnel entrances are large enough to accommodate several stooping men. They narrow considerably inside.
Death threaten workers from every direction. Egyptians at times pump in raw sewage or poison gas. Fires, cave-ins, explosions, air attacks, and other hazards endanger lives.
Besieged Gazans persist as best they can. Survival depends on goods tunnels provide. Destroying them creates enormous hardships.
On September 11, 2013, Bloomberg headlined “Gaza Goat Feed Prices Jump as Sealed Tunnels Hit Economy.”
Muhamed Musa once saved over $2,000 monthly. He did so buying tunnel supplied goat feed.
He did it “until an Egyptian offensive shut the crawlways and forced him to import from Israel at a higher cost.”
“Sales at his farm-supply shop have dropped by half. If the crisis in Egypt continues and the tunnels stay closed,” we’re in real trouble,” he said.
Before Morsi’s July 3 ouster, Hamas economy minister Ala al-Rafati said about 600 tunnels operated.
“Due to the ongoing Egyptian security campaign, 95 percent of (them) are inoperative,” he explained.
“This has caused severe losses to the Gaza Strip economy,” he added. He estimates around $460 million.
Perhaps it’s much more than that. In late October, deputy economy minister Hatem Oweida estimated about $230 million lost monthly.
Tunnel closures “caused heavy losses to industry, commerce, agriculture and construction sectors” he said. Public revenues declined proportionately. Employment was severely impacted. It’s well over 40%.
According to economist Hamad Jad:
“The political upheaval in Egypt has battered the Gaza Strip economy and crippled manufacturing and agriculture.”
Political scientist Mukhemer Abu Sada said Hamas is “under extreme political pressure.”
“Their allies are being weakened, and they are seeing themselves increasingly isolated.”
Egypt’s cracking down harder than ever. Ordinary Palestinians suffer most. Tunnel operations are a shadow of earlier times.
Operator Abu Emad expressed concern, saying:
“I miss the good old days when we were working round the clock. I don’t believe Egypt’s going to let us operate again.”
Gazans yearn to be free. They don’t intend letting Israeli ruthlessness deter them.

What if the “United Nations” had been witnesses in Warsaw Ghetto?

Smuggling to survive deprivation. On the Left: Warsaw WWII On the Right: Gaza 2012

Smuggling to survive deprivation. On the Left: “Warsaw during WWII” On the Right: “Gaza in 2012”

When in World War II Americans reached concentration camps in Germany they found the prisoners, gas chambers and the deprivation in which the prisoners had been held, they hauled citizens of a nearby city and forced them to behold what had been happening just a few kilometers away from their own homes.

And the Germans said:

“Wir haben es nicht gewußt, Wir haben es nicht gewußt…”
(“We didn’t know. We didn’t know…”)

But this world’s powers knew.

They didn’t act as proofs reports which did reach the American representatives of the General Jewish Workers Union of Poland (The Bund) through resistance channels via London on the date of June 22, 1943 relating about the ongoing extermination of Jewish people… and the ‘heroic’ resistance in which Warsaw Ghetto resistance took a lead in battling the Gestapo and SS.

The first ‘clashes’ of Warsaw resistance took place between January 19 until 23  of the year 1943 and was called ‘a prelude of events to come’

An excerpt from the report received by the Americans on June 22, 1943 states:

“We, as well as you, are burning with the desire for vengeance. It is a fight for our freedom, as well as yours; for our human dignity and national honour, as well as yours! We shall avenge the gory deeds of Oswiecim, Treblinka, Belzec and Majdanek.”

The Resistance was heroic.

In determination and in every way they sacrificed their time and lives, facing all the risks. Most of them who remained alive and traveled and smuggled through tunnels in the underground. To resists. Not only by arms but also by smuggling to prevent, those who were able to be saved from deprivation, by smuggling in goods, medications, small weapons and basic needs.

The resistance was able to leave any time. To escape any time.  But their ‘soldier’s honor, the desire to continue the fight for human dignity kept them going.

In Aug 1943 Nazi guards raided the camps of Treblinka, seized ammunition, torched the buildings, schools and caused a total black-out in communications, and those surviving resisted again.

The heroes of Sobibor, Poniatow and Trawniki  receiving aid of the Jewish armed resistance organization in dispatching  funds, ammunition and instructions to all remaining in the camps who fiercely kept resisting.  As heroes do.

We all know what happened in the Holocaust.

We all know, how many people have lost their lives and loved once. Induced by a propaganda of hatred initiated already in 1939 when Goebbels ordered his campaigns and movies like Jud Süss for incitement to be broadcasted to over 20 million people; to be dispatched on the path of war -or- to the destinations to which the Jewish people were to be expelled in creation of the Nazi “Lebensraum”.

I may remind you all of the tremendous undertaking and ‘achievement’ of such, reaching and funneling up hatred to 20 million people, lacking the internet as we know it today.

The hatred for an ideology of supremacy, causing tens of millions of death; aside from all war casualties. resistance, POW’s, disabled, the ill and other ethnic groups that were targeted: 6 million Jewish people were slayed of which 1 million died due to deliberate deprivation policies.

In April 1943 during the first days of the Battle of the Warsaw Ghetto the Jewish Armed Resistance Organization issued this Manifesto to the people of Poland:

Long live the fraternity of blood and weapons in a fighting Poland.
Long live freedom  
Death to the hangmen and the killer
We must continue our mutual struggle against the occupant until the very end.”

    -Signed the Jewish Armed Resistance Organization

“We must continue our mutual struggle against the occupant until the very end.”

69 years later, the same world aware of the horrific cruelties during World War II allows Israel to re-create a new Warsaw ghetto and extermination camps in what is left of Palestine.

The people, occupied alike the Jewish people in camps like the Warsaw Ghetto, now live in Gaza Ghetto

Or in South-African style 2012 Bantustans. Fragmented… for division weakens the resistance. It breaks up families. It hinders normal life in every aspect and essence of dignity, violating every single fundamental right.

Gaza, the largest open air prison in this world, inhabiting 1.7 million people – under the eye of this world – silent as it was back in 1939 – allowing to be submitted to an ongoing onslaught.

While women hid their children in ghetto’s in human waste holes, Israel casts internationally banned weaponry on dense populated area’s. Even during the latest assault in November 2012 Israel pounded Gaza with Uranium, tungsten, aluminum and nickel.

These heavy metals raise the temperature in the center of the explosion to 7 thousand degrees Celsius, and boost the destructive ability of the shell that is launched. Which hole with waste water do you think make one survive such heat or destructing powers?

There is no place to hide in Gaza.

For not only lethal during the assaults, these weapons kills afterwards as well. By birth-defects. Or cancer. So when the warmongering state of Israel does not succeed in pinpoint a ‘target’ the destructive nature of banned weaponry will cause sickness and death of others as well.

For if you can not kill, than make them ill –  If they survive, than deprive. Under the eye of the world.

After 75 tons of depleted uranium already were casted on Gaza during the Cast Lead War and it’s remnants were found in the Gaza environment, it is more than baffling that this world allows Israel’s ongoing quest for destruction and pollution.

Your  newspaper did not cover the events. You might have missed as well, Israel already endangered millions by it’s digital warfare on Iranian nuclear plants by planting a stux-net virus.  But in the rush and routine of the daily life this as well might have passed by your awareness.

Did you forget by the disasters of  Chernobyl and Fukushima?  Although these were “accidents” which were not caused deliberately; like Israel deploys man-imposed devastation with to annihilate other human beings locked up in a camp sealed of by air, sea and land.

With no place to go.
Neither for you.

Eventually nuclear waste does not discriminate your children.
It does neither recognize your border nor “democracy”

Nevertheless,  if such does inflict people in Gaza, with cancer or illness, or birth-defects you would have a slight advantage of not being under siege. Able  to travel to a hospital for treatment.  A fundamental right and even an obligation under the Fourth Geneva Convention Art 55 and 56 which obliges an occupier to assure the entry or access to medical care.

Reminding,  that this same Fourth Geneva convention was adopted in 1949 by the International community in response to Nazi atrocities during World War II.

The very reasons with which this story started.

The Fourth Geneva convention to which Israel is a signee too.  Not living up to the moral nor legal standards other than violating every single one of them under the false claim of security with no desire for peace whatsoever. Where does that leave your feelings when you think about millions of Palestinians living for 65 years in an ongoing genocide, violent- or indirect, by proxy?

Under the eye of the world.

A statement like “Wir haben es nicht gewußt…” is a no go in 2012.

Israel is fighting a war against truth, invests disproportional amounts of funds in arms and propaganda, to manipulate the press and world’s powers.

That could have been an excuse in 1943 but not on this day on which any individual has the resources and means to educate him or herself about facts.

Not Palestinians, but Facts are Israel’s largest enemy.

So you will not know what is really going on. So you will not know what complicit governments, a lobby and those obeying are hiding for you.
So you won’t notice: Israel became exactly that what it feared and hated once itself.

Cumulation of factors caused (as is known by the UN since 2006) 95% of Gaza’s water became  unfit for human consumption and in the West Bank 85% of water resources are under Israeli control which have already moved world’s UN  to calculate it will be ‘unlivable’ by 2020. (Or earlier due to the current increasing crimes and violence by the Israeli  modus operandi)

Israel imposes (like the Nazis imposed on Jewish ghettos) deliberate policies of deprivation. Not so very long ago the report Red Lines was published. For the complicit media were hiding these reports already since late 2010 when Israel tried to turn itself to High court to prevent exposure of the policies and documents.

Like the Nazis blacked out Treblinka in 1943, under the eyes of the world, Israel blackout’s Gaza every single day. By preventing entry of fuel for power-plants, spare parts for it’s repairs sustaining acquafiers, life sustaining equipment, hence even surgery rooms and every single one of the 1.7 million Palestinians in Gaza has a blackout every day.

For years now.  Under the eye of the world.

A world that  funds dearly for 65 years and ongoing the established ‘occupation’, transgressing not only every moral but every very essence of refugee-law and mission statements to end such statuses. 1 in 3 refugees world wide are Palestinian.

A world, acting, not to ease the decaying status quo, but complicit in sustaining it.

One can not state “We did not know” while tax money and government of Party States to the UN are bringing in the sacks and tents for 65 years in the knowledge 2/3 of Gaza’s needs are smuggled in the ‘ghetto’ by tunnels. The same tunnels which prevented excess death in Warsaw Ghetto.

No!  This world nods and turns away as even those lifelines in the underground are  being bombed.

And again, your newspaper does not cover the story of the heroic people fighting the deprivation, to prevent malnutrition, illness and eventually death itself.

For the ‘heroes’ only existed in Warsaw. Not in Gaza. The zionist corporation wants you to count the rockets. Not the facts. And certainly not the dead (children) of Palestine.

Launching every attempt of Palestine’s resistance into main stream media, which de facto is the largest weapon of mass destruction seen in human history:  To keep you ignorant of facts. Distant from reality. Mum for the truth, which can easily be brought under the eyes of the world.

So you will not witness  Israel’ has chosen a new target:  The media.

Targeting the very people able to convey this truth and open your eyes. In the latest assault on Gaza, 3 were killed and 1 was amputated.  Their buildings destroyed in targeted attacks.

Not only under the eyes of the world. It’s on the cameras. It might although have not been on your tv-set.

While their colleagues in white chairs all-over the world – in fear of their paycheck and own social security- swiftly scroll over the coverage and footage of their to charcoal reduced colleagues in the war-zone.

And cover nothing or a bit. Maybe the regular copy and paste of the Israeli press freed which relentlessly throws up the alleged initial assaults which never came from Gaza in the first place.

Solely, in the first 3 months of 2012 Israel committed over 1000 attacks on Palestinians including the West Bank which has no weapon arsenal whatsoever.

Yet all is done to assure these attacks do not reach your eyes or ears and while this world brags about a death sentence in an electric American chair, or a stoning in some Arab country, you might have missed that Israel extrajudicial executed over 1000 people in the last 5 years only.

It was no breaking news on your channel. It was though breaking up complete families and futures in Gaza.

Did you too become the same, as the villagers near Warsaw or other Ghetto’s saying after the war: “We didn’t know” “We didn’t know what was happening inside the camps”?

But not in 2012. And not on my “watch”

The ethnic cleansing of the people of Palestine started in 1948 with the Palestinian KristallNacht, the Nakba expulsions and over 77 massacres and violence initiated not by Palestinians but opposite to common beliefs ignited by zionist terrorist gangs in 1946 with the bombing of the King David Hotel causing 61 innocent people to die. Before, again, before any state of  ‘Israel’ was established.

While the ruling powers of this world are aware of the mouths they feed and the count of sacks they bring in to feed those exiled, producing reports for decades, no efforts are made whatsoever to end this suffering and ongoing onslaught.

Reminding again, that not only bullets and bombs kill, the largest body-count is the silenced one which is never mentioned not even in reports of the NGO’s:

Avoidable Mortality…

What do you think, if the UN had been able to behold the event in Warsaw or Majdanek? Took a peek in Treblinka or Auschwitz these crimes on humanity ever would have been committed?

And why do you allow, in 2012, this same UN and it’s members to commit or sustain, or so silently allow similar practices on human beings, while your advantage is information which was successfully withheld by Nazis in WWII. But this argument is barely valid in this age.

The Jews is Warsaw and Majdanek, Auschwitz and not a soul died during WWII to become gatekeepers of a similar extermination camps.

They did not sacrifice their lives to utter global shock igniting this world to create a ‘thing’ like Fourth Geneva Conventions to assure those signed living up to fundamental rights of all human beings. Yet this governing power has become the biggest hangman itself.

World’s powers flotilla’s did not sail to Normandy in WWII,  to now for some years become servants offering hand- and mouth-service to effectively bar and prevent the flotilla’s with humanitarian conscience, aid and in the effort to get your attention.

This world has a moral and legal obligation to assure fundamental human rights to all human life. Unregarded if one party is a state – or none at all.

Humanity has only one race. The human race which is founded on the deaths of our ancestors fighting for a future, a better one. Like the Jews and Resistance in WWII, nowadays, Palestine’s resistance exercises it’s fundamental right of self-defense against those who were once oppressed and became oppressors themselves.

Denying to do, what they once did, described even up til today as heroic:  to Resists.
Resistance which, in a violent occupation is a fundamental right.

Or did you forget the manifest of Warsaw? I will repeat it once again:

Long live the fraternity of blood and weapons in a fighting Poland.
Long live freedom  
Death to the hangmen and the killer
We must continue our mutual struggle against the occupant until the very end.”
    -Signed the Jewish Armed Resistance Organisation

Nothing has changed since 1943.

Neither for the Palestinian people who never were and still are not longing for death.
Not for their own people nor for it’s oppressor. It only wants freedom and live in a human way.

But it is time for a change, and it is time for a new manifesto:

Long live the fraternity of the humanitarians and righteous that fight for justice in this world.
Long Live Freedom for all
No more oppressions and occupations of no matter which races
We must continue this global struggle against the transgressors until the very end
– Signed One of the Freedom Fighters of the Online Resistance for Palestine

The United Nations did not “observe” in Warsaw.
There was no ‘social media’ breaking the silence.

But the United Nations do “observe” in Palestine.
For almost 7 decades now.
And there is a ‘social media’ shouting from the inside out breaking the trends and passing by the mainstream.

You only need to open your eyes.

Now is the time, you question the mission statements and mandates of nations, united or not, as well as those of your governments as Party Members why they are allowing the crimes imposed on 12 million people to go on, violating their own statutes and remain without any action or sanction.

In hope, all people with a conscience regardless of which faith or none, will join in  humanity and co-resist to achieve an end to impunity imposed on Palestine for once and for all and be part of this liberation movement.

It’s under your eyes now.

And it’s your choice to decide, if you want to go in to history as one who said “We didn’t know” or to be remembered as one of the ‘heroes’ that resisted….

For who does not understand the need or concept of resistance of Palestine, recommended read:

Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

For an overview of All Israeli Massacres Palestinians go here

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
