Israel's Defense Minister Amir Peretz: 'Make Hamas Pay'Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives
There does come a time when you have to say enough is enough ...:
Predicting that Kassam rocket fire would continue over the next few days, the officer said that the IDF planned to continue its current policy of bombing Kassam manufacturing plants, warehouses, Kassam rocket squads and other Hamas infrastructure involved in terror attacks.Close to 30 Kassam rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip into Israel in the past 24 hours, two of which hit a school and a synagogue in Sderot. More than 90 Kassam rockets were launched into Israel since Tuesday. And close to 400 rockets have been launched since the November ceasefire.
He also hinted that the IDF operations could continue even if Hamas stopped firing rockets.
Israel is not "conducting a dialogue" with Hamas, he said, and added that IDF operations were not necessarily dependent on the continuation of rocket attacks.
"We're not just attacking real estate. We want to make Hamas pay for the terror," he said.
The violent ideology and culture that has come to be the essence of the Palestinian people is exasperating even the Arabs. The Palestinians can't even get along with themselves, much less with the Israelis.
