On Sunday Hamas terror chief Khaled Meshal continued to direct incendiary rhetoric towards Israel, threatening to destroy Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s home in any future confrontation with the Jewish state, according to Israel’s Channel 2.

Meshal, speaking to students at the Islamic University of Gaza, said Gazan fighters had destroyed Defense Minister Ehud Barak’s home, an apparent reference to the rockets fired at Tel Aviv, where Barak lives, during the recent Operation Pillar of Defense. No rockets hit the city, though alarms were sounded several times.

“Netanyahu, Barak and [foreign minister Avigdor] Liberman could not have dreamed that Gaza would shell Tel Aviv,” he said. “You, the young people, surprised the enemy. The bombing of Tel Aviv was unexpected.”

Meshal also called on Netanyahu to resign, and follow Ehud Barak into retirement.

The Times of Israel reported that Netanyahu has a home in the seaside town of Caesarea, a little more than 35 miles north of Tel Aviv. The official residence of the Prime Minister is in  Jerusalem.

Meshal was in Gaza for the first time over the weekend to celebrate Hamas’s 25th anniversary and its recent claimed military “victory” over Israel.

    It might be better for Netanyahu to ridicule Meshal. Something along the lines of “Well, at least I have a home, and don’t have to hide in the sewers like a rat.” The word for rat in Hebrew is akhbar, very close to the akbar in the Muslims rallying cry. I don’t know Arabic, so it might be possible for the last part of this taunt to come out sounding a lot like “Allah akbar.”

  • There is absolutely no difference between Meshal’s genocidal goals toward the Jews of Israel, and Muhammad’s genocidal goals toward the Jews of Quaraza. Both are sociopaths masquarading as human beings.

    Meshal is cleary trying to encourage further violence and mayhem. Israel must do to him what Obama did to That American born Shiek Al -Alwaki. But Israel is afraid because he is internationally recognized as a “so all” leader’. However, to personally threaten a head of State like Meshal threatened Netanyahu is almost like a declaration of war. As the saying goes “thems fighting words”. If I were Netanyahu, I would try very hard to take this guy out.
