I’m sure Israel would be more than happy to oblige.
Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal on Wednesday commented on the assassination of the organization’s military chief Ahmed Jabari by the Israel Defense Forces while addressing a conference in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum.
“You killed Jabari and you can go on and kill Mashaal and others, but in the end it’ll pave our way to Jerusalem… Assassinating our leaders will only make us more powerful,” said the man who survived an Israeli assassination attempt in Jordan some 15 years ago.
Mashaal, who is slated to retire from the leadership of Hamas’ political bureau, said that Jabari had recently returned from Mecca to the Gaza Strip through Egypt.
“Ahmed Jabari was not a Hamas man, but a man of the entire nation,” he said. “He and Mohammed Deif (the former head of Hamas’ military wing, who was seriously injured in an IDF assassination attempt) are heroes. He had an important part in building Hamas’ military wing. He lived as hero and died as a hero.”
