    Hamas official Mousa Abu Marzouk confirmed during a recent interview that the hundreds of miles of tunnels underneath Gaza are to protect Hamas terrorists, not Palestinian civilians, from Israeli airstrikes.

    The remarks come after Hamas launched an unprecedented terrorist attack on October 7 in which terrorists murdered 1,400 Israelis, wounded 5,300+, and kidnapped well over 200 people.

    Marzouk made the remarks during an October 27, 2023, interview that was captured and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

    The interviewer asked Marzouk: "Many people are asking: Since you have built 500 kilometers of tunnels, why haven't you built bomb shelters, where civilians can hide during bombardment?"

    "We have built the tunnels because we have no other way of protecting ourselves from being targeted and killed," he responded. "These tunnels are meant to protect us from the airplanes. We are fighting from inside the tunnels."

    "Everybody knows that 75% of the people in the Gaza Strip are refugees, and it is the responsibility of the United Nations to protect them," he continued. "According to the Geneva Convention, it is the responsibility of the occupation to provide them with all the services as long as they are under occupation."

    Hamas commits war crimes by placing their tunnels near and underneath churches, schools, and hospitals.

    "I call on everybody - all the free people of the world, all the friendly countries, all the brotherly [Arab] countries, and all the allies - to exert all the necessary pressure, in all directions and in all forums, in order to end the aggression against Gaza, to stop this war against our children, women, and elderly, our mosques, our universities, and our homes," he said. "This brutal aggression must stop. This new holocaust must stop."

    "I have said this before, and I say it time again: The blood of the women, children, and elderly... I am not saying that this blood is calling for your [help]," he continued. "We are the ones who need this blood, so it awakens within us the revolutionary spirit, so it awakens within us resolve, so it awakens within us the spirit of challenge, and [pushes us] to move forward."

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
