Tzipi Livni Advocates Deterrence Against Hamas


Justice Minister Tzipi Livni (HaTnua) made a surprising statement regarding Israel's security situation Sunday, calling for Israel to crush Hamas in Gaza after news surfaced that 110 rockets have been fired in a four-day period. 

"First of all, according to the international community's view against Hamas, we must act forcefully," Livni stated, in an IDF Radio interview. "There is no hope for peace [with them], it is an organization that does not accept our existence here and has terror against Israeli civilians as part of its worldview... The question of 'how much' and 'when', among other things, is related to the needs and considerations of the point in time when we decide to launch an operation [in Gaza]," she added.
