Nope, had no idea
Answer #2 | 23/07 2014 13:44
No. But now I understand where all those millions of euros they got as humanitarian aid from EU were invested.

yes.. but that doesn't mean that we can do something about it without going in with a ground force. we are aware that Hezbollah to our north has 180,000 rockets pointed at us but without occupying Lebanon we have to live with Damocles sword over our heads. south Korea lives with the north threatening nuclear destruction but carries on living and getting better every day while the north gets poorer.

The IDF was clearly not aware of the extent of the tunnels, as was admitted openly. I am surprised by the responses from other pro Israelis - mistakes should be admitted, otherwise they would think you're lying about other things as well. IDF is not perfect.

There were speculations, but, no, we were not aware of how elaborate they were. If you can even call them elaborate.

They knew about the tunnels, but I don't think the IDF was aware of the magnitude of the situation. (edit - well, as of the news today, turns out they had no idea how elaborate the tunnels were. Just Friday they uncovered a giant network of tunnels under various kibbutzim) There are tunnels to the United States, too. I'm sure there's a whole network of things that the average American isn't aware of.

Most people who are concerned for Israel's safety were aware of how expansive it was prior to this particular conflict. The only thing that has been made clearer to me since the current Gaza issue started is just how much money was put into making these tunnels. You'd think a more responsible and caring organization would use the money to improve the lives of the people of Gaza which, btw, is why the money came pouring in to begin with.
