Israeli politician: Israel has no choice but to topple Hamas

April 17, 2008 1:32 P.M. (Updated: April 17, 2008 1:32 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israel has no choice but to overthrow Hamas in the Gaza Strip and to attack the Iranian army which has "begun to deploy in the Gaza Strip," head of the Israeli national religious party Mafdal, Efi Eitam, said on Thursday.

Eitam told the Israeli radio station the Voice of Israel that Israeli army activity near the border with the Gaza Strip was necessary. He added that "it could be costly" if there was no explicit policy of military action inside the Gaza Strip.

Knesset Member (MK) Efraim Snieh from the Labor Party told the radio station that a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip would be beneficial for Hamas rather than Israel, and instead Hamas should be suppressed. He said he expected fighting against Hamas to continue in the coastal sector because "only military might can topple Hamas."
