MK Ze’ev Elkin, the head of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said in a YNet interview,
“The international pressure is starting. Last time we listened to the Americans, and we let Hamas participate in the elections. [Then] Hamas took over all of Gaza, and we got terrorism in return. Hamas is a terror organization, just like Al-Qaida, and therefore there is nothing to talk about regarding negotiations.”
Elkin added, “That Hamas is still firing means they aren’t yet deterred, and they haven’t yet reached their breaking point.”
