Israel, that oasis of civilization, creativity, and inventive technology in the cesspool known as the Middle East is coming up with a “Tunnel Shield”, which could perform a number of functions, including sensing when a tunnel is being dug and destroying tunnels with robots.
It’s amazing to what lengths the Israelis will go to in order to protect the precious lives of each and every citizen of the Jewish state. The Israeli Defense Forces, in an effort to also protect the lives of Gaza residents, do their best to warn civilians to get out of the way when they are planning an operation. Unfortunately, many of these people are unable to save themselves because they are being used as human shields by the Hamas terrorists.
In the end, as Israel continues to meet head-on those who are sworn to destroy her, it is more and more apparent that this is a conflict between civilization and barbarism, between the culture of life and the culture of death.
In the meantime, the life-saving “Tunnel Shield”, the result of a free society committed to technological innovation, could be in place as early next year.
