Most Israelis want Hamas leaders targeted

Al-Reuters is reporting today on a poll published in Ma'ariv which indicates that 82 percent of Israelis favored killing leaders of Hamas.
Respondents were questioned on Wednesday, the day before Israeli tanks and troops pushed into northern Gaza.

The poll also showed that 47 percent of respondents were unhappy with the overall performance of Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, compared to 43 percent who gave a positive review. There were no comparisons from previous polls.

New Defense Minister Amir Comrade Peretz's approval rating was especially low, with only 28 percent of respondents saying he was doing a good job, while 64 percent said he was not.

Earlier this week, the Jerusalem Post reported that MK Ephraim Sneh, a fellow Labor party member and former general, was going to be named Deputy Defense Minister to 'assist' Peretz.
