Hamas: Talking big, acting scared

Hamas is issuing its usual bellicose threats against Israel.
Hamas will respond with "unprecedented" force to any attempt by Israel to assassinate its leaders, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told Hamas's newspaper, Palestine, on Monday. Abu Zuhri said that targeted killings by Israel would force the group to use "all possible means" to avenge the act.
But it's acting scared.
Abu Zuhri spoke after the London-based Al-Quds al-Arabi quoted Palestinian sources Monday as saying that Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, fearing an attempt on his life by Israel, has gone underground.

According to Al-Quds, after Haniyeh was reportedly placed at the head of Israel's assassination list, Hamas security took steps to increase security around the heads of the organization, especially Haniyeh. "Only a few of Haniyeh's bodyguards know where he is," the sources said.

Other key Hamas figures believed to be at the top of Israel's "hit list" include Mahmoud Zahar and Said Siam. According to Al-Quds, Zahar has enjoyed increased popularity among Gazans since his son was killed by the IDF. Sources told the newspaper that some even saw Zahar as the "head" of Hamas.
Here's looking for a car swarm real soon! And maybe we can make Abu Zuhri number 4 on the list.
