So, Building Tunnels to Smuggle Food and Weapons Makes You a Terrorist, Right?


Interesting, isn’t it, how one’s political ideology allows one to call the exact same action heroism and terrorism- depending on who is doing the act…  Via Palestinian Christians on FB.

  1. Somehow in my study of history I missed the part about how the Jews in Warsaw used their tunnels to
    (1) smuggle in rockets that they would then fire at Berlin and other cities in Germany, and
    (2) send out squads into Germany to either kill or kidnap German civilians.

    Please Jim, so my education may be complete, refer to the historical sources that show that what the Jews in Warsaw did over 70 years ago is the same as what Hamas in Gaza is doing now.

    • both parties used tunnels to arm and feed themselves.

  2. Activity: Making tunnels
    2 purposes: Arm and Feed themselves
    Moral equivalency: Jews of Warsaw and Hamas

    2 groups of people, each undertaking an activity for which there are at least 2 purposes, in your logic seems to create moral equivalency where the Jews of Warsaw were no better or worse than Hamas. Below is the same logic

    Activity: Writing
    2 purposes: Motivate and lead others
    Moral equivalency: Zwingli and Hitler
