Hamas Threatens Israel with Genocide (again)

From A7, 22 Nov 2013, by Elad Benari:

Members of Hamas have recently implied that once the balance of power changes, the terror group will commit genocide against Israelis.

Members of the Hamas terrorist group that controls Gaza have threatened Israel with genocide.
... the comments were made last week as Hamas marked the first anniversary of the IDF’s counter-terrorism Operation Pillar of Defense which took place in November of 2012.
... Hamas celebrated its “victory” over Israel...
The...speeches given by officials in Hamas repeatedly highlighted the group’s commitment to the liberation of all “Palestinian territory”, denying the right of the "Zionists" to settle in the land of Israel and a declaration of the intent to perform genocide against Jews when the balance of power is reversed.
This message was expressed in a speech on November 13, 2013 given by Khalil Al-Hayya, a senior Hamas figure who is a Hamas parliamentarian, a member of the political bureau of Hamas and the Association of Palestinian Scholars which is affiliated with Hamas.
"This way [Hamas's commitment to jihad] says to them: [You] Zionists, you have no place on the land of Palestine ... we shall expel you from our land and we will fight against you on it [on the land], we will kill you or expel you from it when you are submissive ..."
Abu Ubaidah, a spokesman for the Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, echoed these sentiments, said Halevi. Abu Ubaidah said on the first anniversary of Pillar of Defense that it would be better for the Jews to leave “Palestine” as soon as possible before “the hand of justice" comes to them, implying that they will be physically eliminated by the Arabs...
This approach, which sees the conflict with Israel as an uncompromising religious war, is consistent with the Hamas charter and the positions expressed by Hamas leaders over the years...
“Hamas’s diplomatic ‘flexibility’ as reported by the media and different commentators is not expressed neither in Hamas's ideological line nor in its practical realization of the conceptual basis,” he writes...
Two weeks ago, a spokesman for the Al-Qassam Brigades vowed Hamas would continue building terror tunnels and press on in the terror war to destroy Israel.
