Hamas threatens more attacks after Gaza pullout

Reuters reports:

Palestinian Islamic militant group Hamas said on Saturday it would fight to drive Israel out of the West Bank and Jerusalem after the Jewish state completes its withdrawal from the occupied Gaza Strip this year.

“Gaza is not Palestine,” a masked spokesman for Hamas’s armed wing told a news conference in Gaza City.

“As for Jerusalem and the West Bank, we will seek to liberate them by resistance just as the Gaza Strip was liberated,” said the spokesman, surrounded by gunmen and militants with rocket launchers.

While this is no surprise to me, it might be to all of those on the left who thought that if Israel would only unilaterally evacuate from Gaza, the Palestinian jihadists would be satisfied, and Israelis and Palestinians would live together, side-by-side, peaceably for the rest of eternity.
