Feb 3/09. Likud leader Binyamin
Netanyahu on Tuesday promised that a government under his leadership would
topple the Hamas regime in the Gaza Strip.
"[Kadima leader] Tzipi Livni and the
people of Kadima scoffed at the predictions regarding rocket fire. A
government under my leadership will overthrow the Hamas rule in Gaza and
bring about a cessation of rocket fire," Netanyahu said during a tour of
Ashkelon following the first Grad rocket attack since the conclusion of
Operation Cast Lead some two weeks ago.
"The policy of blindness followed in
the past years has brought us to this situation," Netanyahu continued.
"Residents can no longer count on miracles and Kadima policy."
