Felesteen, a Hamas-leaning news site, has an article against the barrier Israel is building underground around Gaza.
It gives two reasons to oppose such a defensive measure.
One is that it makes it harder for the terrorists to infiltrate Israel and kidnap or kill Israelis.
The occupation leadership is seeking through the construction of the barrier to achieve several goals, such as tightening border control and preventing infiltrations as well as destruction of tunnels that can help the resistance to carry out unprecedented strategic operations.
Two is that it will hurt the environment.
Professor of natural geography at the Islamic University, Naim Baroud, said that digging the wall at deep depths in the ground will affect the soil along the eastern border of the Strip, both near and far.
Baroud pointed out that the soil of Gaza is sandy so drilling will increase the disintegration and decomposition of the soil, exposing the border area to landslides, especially the eastern region, which is agricultural land planted with all kinds of vegetables and citrus.
He explained that the wall has catastrophic repercussions on the groundwater, rain water flowing from the east from the basin of Hebron and Beersheba to the west to enter the internal reserves in Gaza.
Baroud added that according to Israeli reports, “the occupation intends to inject industrial waste which contain some dangerous and toxic substances such as mercury, and also the possibility that the water contains radioactive materials from the Dimona reactor.”
“This wastewater will be inextricably linked to the groundwater reservoir close to the surface of the earth, which will have catastrophic consequences affecting the safety and quality of water and the emergence of a carcinogenic disease.”
Yes, Hamas is deeply concerned about the environment. It is so liberal when it is being prevented from murdering Jews.
But you can be sure that the anti-Israel Left will latch onto the second argument as a reason to oppose Israel’s defensive measures. As always, the real reason they oppose any Israeli defenses are the first reason given in this article – Israelis shouldn’t be able to defend themselves, period.
Which is exactly what Yousef Munayyer, a BDS leader, tweeted the other day:
This is said about every “security measure” thousands of lives and many wars ago

You can be sure that now Munayyer will seize the supposed environmental impact to argue against the Wall to his liberal friends, many of whom won’t realize that he really opposes it because he wants more dead Jews.
