Jimmy Carter Rebuilds Hamas Bunker

GAZA STRIP - Jimmy Carter and Habitat for Humanity have reconstructed a Hamas ammunition bunker, destroyed by Israeli forces in recent fighting. "A few sandbags, some reinforced concrete and it's good as new," bragged the former U.S. president. Carter plans rebuilding mortar pits and machine gun emplacements throughout the Gaza Strip as part of Habitat's Global Village Program. "We're working alongside the host community to construct fortifications and fighting positions that mirror the regions' traditional architecture." Carter hopes to later tackle the supply tunnels between Egypt and Gaza. "They're crying out for basic illumination," said Carter. "A few goose-neck lamps would give those tunnels a homey feel and make hauling 122mm rockets a much more life-affirming task."
