A Field Trip With The Mossad! Part II: The People

Here’s Part II of our field trip from last week. You can read the first part here.

The live Twitter feed can be seen here.

Third Stop: Kibbutz Alumim

After seeing the horrible long-term effects of the fires on the environment, we took you to see the nearby communities and the people who have had to deal with living under the constant threat of a nearby terrorist organisation brainwashed to murder.

Welcome to Kibbutz Alumim. A religious socialist community 3 km from the Gaza border. A well-kept, green community with gardens, schools and kindergartens. What’s different about this place is how they had to adjust their lives and infrastructure in order to adapt to a lifestyle in which running to shelter in under 15 seconds is a normal part of life.

To ensure the children are safe, the kindergarten’s roof has a roof. Safe rooms are laid out everywhere. The kindergarten teachers are also child psychologists. Most members of this community suffer from PTSD including the children.

The children who hear sirens blazing must run for shelter. They learned a song to teach them that everything will be all right.

In the above video this is what the children must do every time there is a siren.

Translation of their song:

Hurry hurry hurry, to the safe room
Hurry hurry hurry, because now it’s dangerous
My heart is beating, doo do do doo doo doo
My body is shaking, doo do do doo doo doo
But I am brave, because I’m already relaxed
(Rocket) Lands… Boom!
Now we can stand
Our body, shake shake shake
Our feet, shake shake shake
Breathe deep
Breathe out
Breathe deep
And now we can laugh!

Is this something you can even imagine your children learning in kindergarten?

Fourth Stop: Spelunking

In a field about 2 km from the Gaza border, one day a farmer was tending to his field when he noticed a large hole. This hole turned out to be a sophisticated tunnel built by Hamas terrorists. Its purpose was to lead an army of armed terrorists to infiltrate nearby towns of Ein HaShlosha, Nirim and Kisufim and cause a mass terror event. This could have meant that families would have been gunned down, taken hostage, communities like we saw above could have turned into a catastrophe.

These tunnels are fortified with concrete and fitted with electricity. You can see the engineering that went into this tunnel. Each kilometer of tunnel costs around $1,000,000. There are dozens of tunnels and hundreds of kilometers. This is how Hamas chooses to spend their money that they receive as “donations” or “aid” from around the world. This is the kind of money that could build a fruitful economy.

We will finish off the trilogy for our last 2 stops. Stay tuned.
