“What we heard from the Hamas leadership in Gaza today should serve as a wake-up call to anyone who has illusions about the extremist and murderous character of Hamas,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s spokesman, Mark Regev, said on Saturday night.

He spoke in response to speeches delivered by Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal and other leaders of the Islamist movement in Gaza City earlier in the day.

“They unequivocally restated a maximalist and terrorist position that sees as its goal the total destruction of the Jewish state and fundamentally rejects any compromise,” Regev said.

“I would ask the Palestinian leadership in Ramallah, who talks about making a political coalition with these extremists: What does this say about your own stated commitment to peace and reconciliation?”

Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz said Mashaal deserved to die and should be the subject of a targeted killing, as should all of Hamas’s leadership.
