Minister Boim: Only way to stop Gaza rockets is to kill Haniyeh

Haaretz, 4 February 2009

Housing and Construction Minister Ze’ev Boim on Wednesday said that Israel must assassinate Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh in order to stop the continuation of rocket fire, Army Radio reported.”As long as Hamas rules in Gaza and carries out terror from there, not just against Israel but against the civilian population in the strip, rockets will continue to strike Israel,” Boim said.

According to Boim, killing Haniyeh could bring about a similar response to the one that followed the assassination of another group leader, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin in 2004. While that attack brought about fierce international criticism, it also brought about a long period of perplexity, Boim said.

  1. These Dumb Fucks in Israel just don’t get it. They’ve already lost the war. Attacking Hamas in Gaza did more damage to their regime that any time since it’s illegal creation.
