Hamas vows to target Israeli leaders

This BBC report, though deadly serious, has this that is in an odd way funny: Hamas says it will up the ante now. As though this group of rabid dogs had believed in moderation and restraint.
Ibrahim al-Maqadma was one of four Hamas members killed in the Gaza strike which came hours after two Israelis were shot dead by Palestinians who infiltrated the settlement of Kiryat Arba, near Hebron in the West Bank.

The military wing of Hamas said it carried out the settlement raid late on Friday - another attack in an upsurge in violence between Palestinians and Israelis.

In an interview with Qatar-based al-Jazeera TV, Hamas official Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi said: "I appeal to all unit commanders to target Jewish politicians... in parliament, in political parties and in the government.

"Every so-called Jewish political leader is wanted because they are declaring war against God and Islam." [more]
