"The time has come for actions," Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Sunday during a meeting with IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, Shin Bet Director Yuval Diskin, and other senior security officials...

"We disengaged from Gaza, we uprooted communities and Israelis from their homes just so there would be quiet for the Gaza vicinity towns – these are painful concessions that we have made for peace and Hamas continues its attacks," said Barak at the security meeting, held in his office...

The Hamas' true message to Israelis:
We want you dead

Don’t allow yourself to be fooled by their media manipulation of woman and children... the Hamas’ true message to Israelis is unequivocally clear:
"You are our target - We want you dead."
Israel's goals are also clear - Staying alive.

On the same day in which the Hamas staged its "peaceful" propaganda march of women and children toward Israel's border crossings (26 Feb 2008), the Hamas' official website featured a poster, portraying its gunmen in battle dress, declaring in English and Hebrew "Death is Coming", and depicting Israeli casualties in the background.
As Hamas continues in its rocket campaign against Israel’s cities, it has also stepped up its PR campaign to explain to Israeli civilians that Hamas wants them dead.

Here are three posters, displayed prominently on Hamas web sites, with captions that leave no
room for misunderstandings.

Gods speed to the Israeli people
in their battle for peace
in their homeland.
