Ten million dollars?? Do you know how poor and fucked up Gaza is?? And you built a fucking attack tunnel??
What could you have done for ten million dollars? Oh, I don't know: how about employ half of Gaza for a year. How about: buy solar panels and install them all over, taking away Israel's power over your ability to grow, learn and prosper? How about providing state of the art healthcare for the people? How about buying a fishing fleet? How about building your own fucking settlements so Israel would have a tougher time with their settlement arguments because they'd be tearing down massive complexes. How about buying properties in Jerusalem and setting up Palestinian families there? How about giving your population a world class education?
This to me speaks of fucked-up priorities. Yes, Israel's treatment of the Palestinian territories is oppressive. But creating a vibrant economy that the world respects and Israel can't control would be the best way to beat them at their own game. Instead, you choose death, and war. That says you don't value life, which means you don't value society or civilization and you don't deserve respect.
In times last there was talk of Hamas as a decent civil actor - fielding medical care, running government, etc - but these actions just debase them. Claims of innocence by Gaza ring hollow; if the Hamas rockets rained down on them, they'd die just as easily (or worse) than what Israel is doing.
Again, my knowledge of the situation is glancing, and who knows whether the Israeli estimates are part of their propaganda war or accurate. Still, Hamas' focus on killing and terrorizing others instead of building up their own people speaks to an emptiness of purpose, a paucity of spirit.
