The warning:Hamas' spokesperson: If Haniyeh is assassinated, "earthquake will shake the region"

From Arab media

Typical warning shot-this demonstrates our enemies belief: we live in fear of them and their strateges of terror work.

Bethlehem – Ma'an – exclusive – The spokesperson of the Hamas' Al-Qassam Brigades, Abu Ubayda threatened on Sunday that if Israel assassinates the deposed Palestinian Prime Minister Isma'il Haniyeh, "an earthquake will shake the region," and the Israelis will be held responsible for all the repercussions. Abu Ubayda told Ma'an, "If the Israelis commit such a criminal act, after getting the green light from Washington, we will use all the means which we have not yet used." However, he expalined that Hamas will endeavor to thwart such an attempt.

With regards to whether the Israeli threats are serious or not, the spokesperson said, "The Israelis have nothing to restrain them, and Haniyeh was a target for the Israelis before, so we take that possibility seriously."

Commenting on the issue of transferring Palestinian resistance outside Palestine, Abu Ubayda said, "The Palestinian resistance is meant to confront the Israeli occupation in the Palestinian territories, and so it will not be transferred outside."

Additional comment: Every time we appease ,capitulate or cower to their demands and actions, we reinforce their primary belief: terror and fear will ultimately defeat the West. This "warning" is yet one more demonstration of this long held strategy. You see, they keep repeating it because it does work-time to get some courage!!
