Netanyahu: Hamas Wants to Destroy Us. They Will Fail


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu referred to Hamas head Khaled Mashaal’s anti-compromise declarations in Gaza during Sunday’s cabinet meeting. “We are again seeing our enemy’s true face,” he said.

“They have no intention of compromising with us,” he continued. “They want to destroy our country. They will, of course, fail in this.” “What’s interesting is that Abu Mazen did not denounce this – not the statements about destroying Israel, just as he previously did not condemn the missile fire on Israel,” Netanyahu added. Instead, Abbas strives to reunite with Hamas, he said.
