Netanyahu: Topple Hamas Regime

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - After touring the Ashkelon neighborhood hit by a Grad missile Tuesday morning, Likud chairman Binyamin (Bibi) Netanyahu said a government led by him would topple Hamas.

"[Foreign Minister] Tzipi Livni and the people of Kadima [party] scoffed at the predictions regarding rocket fire. A government led by me will overthrow the Hamas rule in Gaza and bring about a cessation of rocket fire," Netanyahu said.

One resident pleaded with him not to give the defense ministry to present Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

"Enough talking," the resident shouted. "Promise us you won't appoint Ehud Barak as defense minister."

Netanyahu didn't respond to the plea.

Earlier in the week, Moshe Ya'alon, former IDF chief of general staff now running on the Likud party ticket, told participants of the annual Herzliya Conference that Islamic terror groups saw the Israeli withdrawals from Lebanon and the Gaza Strip as "victories to jihad." 

"History has taught us that capitulating to terror only invites more terror," Ya'alon said.

"In the case of Israel, steadfastness against terror also includes standing firm, without discussing any territorial concessions," the former IDF chief said.

"We have learned that our concessions over the past 15 years have brought upon us only more terror, rockets and bloodshed," he said.
