Hamas, Islamic Jihad Vow to Continue Terror - No Matter What

Both Hamas and Islamic Jihad reiterated their commitment to terror over the weekend, stating that a "unity" pact with the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the new government's public pledge to renounce terror does not change their views. Hamas leader and former political figure Ismail Haniyeh stated in a public address Saturday - in honor of the opening session of terror training "summer camps" in Gaza - that "Hamas's strategy has not changed and will not change."

Islamic Jihad, similarly, ignored calls from Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon to disarm due to the pact.
