CBNNews.com - GAZA STRIP - Senior Hamas member Mahmoud al-Zahar said 200,000 Palestinian suicide bombers are waiting to "martyr" themselves inside Israel.
"If Israel has 200 nuclear warheads, the Palestinian people have 200,000 suicide bombers waiting to blow themselves up in the presence of Zionists and be martyred," al-Zahar told Hamas supporters at the Islamic University of Gaza in Gaza City.
Al-Zahar also said the "Zionist entity" would pay a heavy price if it didn't accept the Egyptian-brokered cease-fire with Hamas and other Palestinian factions.
"If Israel says no, it will pay a heavy price," the terror chief threatened.
Assuming Israel will accept the proposal presented by Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman, all the border crossings into Gaza would be reopened, al-Zahar said.
"The issue of the truce initiative will be determined finally next week. I believe Israel will accept the initiative, although it will try to drag its feet on some issues," he said.
Suleiman is slated to visit Israel next week, after cancelling the last two visits he scheduled.
