Report: Lieberman calls for Meshaal's assassination

Israel's Channel 2 is reporting that Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has called for the assassination of Hamas politburo chief Khaled Meshaal, saying that it's the only way to ensure that no more terror tunnels will be built.
According to the report, Liberman said in the meeting that killing Mashaal is the only way to ensure that further infiltration tunnels from Gaza to Israel will not be built in the future.

The foreign minister added that Mashaal was responsible for and had funded terror attacks which have killed hundreds of Israelis.

Mashaal, the political bureau chief of the Palestinian Islamist group, was Hamas' Jordanian branch chief in 1997, when Mossad agents poisoned him to death in an assassination attempt in Amman.

The Mossad agents were arrested by Jordanian authorities. King Hussein threatened to sever ties with Israel and to try the Mossad agents unless Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who ordered the assassination on Mashaal in retaliation for a suicide bombing committed in Jerusalem that year, turned over the antidote.

After some hesitation, Netanyahu relented, and Mashaal's life was saved.
I would love to see Meshaal assassinated... but why tip the guy off?

We need to alert Asra Kadisha immediately. Mashaal might be Jewish.
