How Now, Old Mole?
In a clear sign that Hamas is adopting Hizbullah tactics, IDF troops uncovered underground Kassam launch silos inside the Gaza Strip during an early-morning foray there on Thursday. During the operation, the troops killed seven Palestinian gunmen affiliated with Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

How now, old mole?
What with the digging of all those tunnels, one after the other, dozens or hundreds of them, hundreds of meters long, to bring in much-needed supplies -- explosives, rockets, grenades, rifles -- that the long-suffering Gazans so desperately need, and what with the effort that must have gone into destroying those greenhouses that had been handed over to them by the Israelis in perfect working order, and what with all the construction of villas for such warlords as Arafat's cousin (or was it his nephew), and what with the digging, and re-digging, of holes for those rockets, aimed or rather not aimed, simply shot into the air, to fall to earth they know not where, somewhere in the middle of Sderot or other civilian "targets, and what with all the counterfeiting of American dollars, and attacks on local Christians (now terrified into either silence, or strangled-throat praise of the Muslims whose "protection" they must endure), what will all of the infighting by the various warlords, and their henchmen, and the foot-soldiers, all so eager to take a larger share of the loot, the Infidel loot, that is available (and that is the real quarrel between the Fast Jihadists of Hamas and the Slow Jihadists of Fatah -- they differ not in goals, but in timing and tactics, and the Slow Jihadists of Fatah are more interested in getting their hot little hands here and now, on whatever can be inveigled -- so far about $8 billion in the last go-round of "international donors" to the "Palestinians" -- out of the Infidels, and then they can proceed, at a slightly more cunning and stately pace, to undo, by degrees the Infidel nation-state of Israel. And the members of Hamas, having endured more than a decade of rule by the corrupt Fatah men, lording it over them, strutting about, building those villas, behaving at times not as Muslims are supposed to behave, are less concerned with the here and now because for them, Paradise were Paradise enow.
So dig they must. Dig those tunnels for those explosives -- or maybe not, now that they can bring them right across the border, without the Egyptian police stopping them. Yes, it's the "Palestinian" Arab version of Boston's Big Dig.
And dig they will.
And the Israelis will keep having to return to unearth those tunnels for smuggling, those tunnels for entering Israel to kidnap Israelis, those holes for those rockets.
How now, indeed?
