 Sintesi personale
 L'  IDF ha annunciato oggi di aver scoperto un secondo grande tunnel che conduce da Gaza al territorio israeliano,ma secondo la mia fonte della sicurezza israeliana, anche questa  scoperta ,come il precedente tunnel, scaturisce dalle rivelazioni  di Sami Atawna, 29 anni. Nonostante ciò l'IDF , il primo ministro e  il ministro della difesa sostengono che questi  risultati sono stati  ottenuti grazie alle sofistificate teconologie usate per scoprire i tunnel.Vedere la segnalazione di Isabel Kershner :
Il primo ministro Benjamin Netanyahu ha  dichiarato : "lo Stato di Israele ha compiuto una svolta globale nella capacità di individuare i tunnel.",ma senza fornire alcun dettaglio sulla tecnologia in questione.  Netanyahu ha aggiunto: "Il governo sta investendo ingenti capitali nel contrastare la minaccia del tunnel. Si tratta di uno sforzo continuo".
 Il  procuratore di Stato    sta costruendo su  Atawna (ebraico) una trama  molto poco plausibile .E' 'accusato di  aver attraversato il confine con Israele con due coltelli  per condurre un attacco contro le forze israeliane. Quindi  lo Shabak  vorrebbe farci far credere : un ingegnere per i  tunnel di Hamas  decide  di abbandonare il suo lavoro, i suoi compagni,  afferra due coltelli e  attraversa il confine per vendicarsi su Israele. Poi si dà il caso che questo ingegnere sia catturato e conosca la posizione di due grandi gallerie  . Quindi si  presenta volontariamente allo  Shabak.
Ci sono numerose ragioni per cui la storia può essere definita uno stratagemma: in primo luogo, nessuno a Gaza ha attraversato il confine per attaccare qualsiasi israeliano durante l'attuale ciclo di ostilità. In secondo luogo Atawna   aveva una funzione importante  nella costruzione del tunnel di Hamas .. Queste persone non sviluppano improvvisi deliri per  diventare martiri  Non sono adolescenti con nulla da perdere.
Quindi, se la storia è stata inventata, qual è la vera storia? Questo è più difficile da definire. Una storia alternativa che circola dice che Atawna è stato rapito da Israele, non che ha tradito .Questa storia potrebbe essere  stata  inventato al fine di proteggere la famiglia di Atawna dalla vendetta di Hamas. Il punto debole di questa spiegazione è che Hamas deve sapere qualcosa sulla scomparsa di Atawna. Se fosse stato rapito,qualcuno avrebbe visto qualcosa e lo avrebbe riferito Se avesse volontariamente attraversato il confine per uccidere gli israeliani, qualcuno lo avrebbe probabilmente visto. Se avesse disertato   questo potrebbe essere stato nascosto ad Hamas.
La mia fonte della sicurezza israeliana  afferma :" E 'probabilmente la conclusione di  un patteggiamento, ma Atawna trascorrerà anni di carcere. Dopo tutto  un disertore terrorista è ancora un terrorista.  Del resto se fosse liiberato,  Hamas avrebbe la conferma del tradimento ".
  La cartina di tornasole di questa storia sarà  costituita dai capi di 'accusa,  dalla condanna  e dal trattamento che avrà in prigione,
Se riceve una condanna leggera e viene isolato nel sistema carcerario per proteggerlo da eventuali ritorsioni, allora sapremo la verità di questa storia.
 trasparente (che è altamente improbabile). Spero di essere in grado di identificare il killer. Ma l'ordine di gag si trova in modo mio in questo momento.
 The IDF announced today that it had discovered a second major tunnel leading from Gaza towards Israeli territory.  The exposure of this tunnel, like that of the first one reported recently came, according to my Israeli security source, as the result of the defection of a senior Hamas commander, Sami Atawna, age 29.
This has not stopped IDF Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, the prime minister and defense minister from lying to the public, claiming sophisticated new tunnel detection techniques and systems have uncovered these excavation projects.  Take Isabel Kershner’s entirely too credulous reporting:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed the discovery, saying, “the state of Israel has achieved a global breakthrough in the ability to locate tunnels.”
Describing the breakthrough as “unique,” but without providing any details of the technology involved, Mr. Netanyahu added, “The government is investing considerable capital in countering the tunnel threat. This is an ongoing effort that will not end overnight.”
This is all utter nonsense.  They didn’t find the tunnels due to technology or equipment.  They did it through one of the oldest tricks known to intelligence services: defection.  Interestingly, Yossi Melman reported (Hebrew) in recent days that the IDF has spent $250-million on its tunnel eradication projects since the 2014 war.  It would seem to have little to show for it.
You’d think that the Shabak would reward such a figure for the service he provided to the State of Israel.  Usually, intelligence services are willing to offer serious blandishments to defectors who give such valuable information.  But not Israel, apparently.  Today, the State prosecutor announced it was charging Atawna (Hebrew) with a plot that is so wild and implausible that it can be discounted out of hand.  He is accused of grabbing two knives and crossing the Israeli border to wage an attack on Israeli forces.
So this is what Shabak would have us believe: a Hamas tunnel engineer, one of the most critical jobs in Gaza, who commands a large crew, decides on the spur of the moment to abandon his job, his comrades, and grabs two knives and crosses the border to wreak vengeance on Israel.  Then, it just so happens that this tunnel engineer is captured on his way to stab Israeli soldiers, and coincidentally knows the identity of two major tunnels, which he voluntarily reports to Shabak.  What a fortuitous accident that such bounty should fall into Shabak’s hands unsolicited.  It makes as much sense as the plot of Godfather III.
There are numerous reasons the story is a ruse: first, no Gazan has crossed the border to attack any Israeli during the current round of hostilities.  Second, Atawna was criticial figure in Hamas’ tunnel building operation.  Such people do not suddenly develop delusions that they will abandon their lives and become martyrs by knifing an Israeli.  He was not a teenager with nothing to lose, as almost all of the other Palestinian attackers have been.
So if the story has been concocted, why has it been and what is the true story?  That’s harder to pin down.  An alternate story circulating says that Atawna was kidnapped by Israel, rather than defected.  The cover story might be devised to protect Israel from any charge that it had invaded Gaza territory to commit this kidnapping.
But the most likely story is that it was invented in order to protect Atawna’s family from retribution at the hands of Hamas.  The weakness of this explanation is that Hamas must know something about Atawna’s disappearance.  If he had been kidnapped, someone would’ve seen something and reported it.  If he had voluntarily crossed the border to kill Israelis, someone would likely have seen him.  If he had defected, it’s more possible this might have been concealed from Hamas.  But even the secretive nature of such a disappearance would give rise to suspicion that he defected, rather than was kidnapped.  And so, what benefit would this be to his family?
My Israeli security source says: ” “It’ll probably end in a plea deal, But Atawna will serve years in prison. After all, a terrorist defector is still a terrorist. And beside this – if we just let him go, Hamas will know for sure he betrayed them.”
This is where I lose faith either in the story being offered or in Israel’s treatment of Atawna.  I suppose the proof will be in how the prosecution is conducted, how long his sentence is and how he is treated in prison.  But one thing is for certain, if he goes anywhere in the Israeli prison system there will be hundreds of Hamas prisoners who will be happy to pay him back for his betrayal.  Therefore, I don’t understand the Israeli decision to prosecute, even if they are trying to conceal his defection.
I’ve also considered the possibility that despite the information Atawna offered, he may’ve either betrayed the Shabak or done something of which they disapproved.  His prosecution may be payback for that.  Though this doesn’t seem a very strong possibility.
If he receives a light sentence and is isolated in the prison system to protect him from retaliation, then we will know the real truth of this story.
Qalandiya Murders
Israel announced today that it was investigating the murder of a young Palestinian mother and her teenage brother at the Qalandiya checkpoint.  They were shot and killed by private security guards employed by the Public Security ministry.  The guards, according to eyewitness accounts, were 60 feet away from the victims when they were mowed down, and not under any physical threat.  The witnesses also claim the killers planted knives on their bodies after the murders.
Though the case is under gag order, I’ve discovered that the killers were employed by an Israeli private security company, Modiin Ezrachi (“Civilian Intelligence”).  If you are an Israeli reader of this blog, no matter your politics, I urge you to call for accountability and a transparent investigation (which is highly unlikely).  I am hoping to be able to identify the killer.  But the gag order stands in my way at this time.
