(VIDEO IN EXTENDED ARTICLE)

Few former Defense Ministers in Israel were brazen enough to make some of the statements made by Yisrael Beitenu party leader Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who unabashedly told the media if elected, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh is a dead man.

“I am telling you and you can hold me to my word- and this is all recorded, that if appointed defense minister, I am giving Mr. Haniyeh 48 hours to return the bodies [of soldiers Oren Shachor and Hadar Goldin] and the [captured] citizens or you are dead.”

  1. The youtube headline makes clear what the article doesn’t, which is that he is currently the defense minister, but before he was he said he would kill haniyyeh which he didn’t. Obviously he’s being restrained from doing so by reality of diplomacy and international politics.
