now that the mourning period for Yassin is over, we should begin to see how serious Hamas really is and this situation will probably escalate much
Armed Hamas Members Threaten Huge Attacks in Israel at End of Mourning Period for Assassinated
Armed Hamas militants vowed huge attacks against Israel at a rally Wednesday marking the end of three days of mourning for the Islamic militant
group's assassinated founder Sheik Ahmed Yassin. "Wait for the earthquake," one masked man warned.
Tens of thousands streamed to Gaza City's Yarmouk soccer stadium in another show of strength for Hamas. On Monday, about 200,000 people filled the
streets of Gaza City for Yassin's funeral procession.
The huge rally Wednesday reflected Palestinian anger and support for Hamas, which has killed hundreds of Israelis in suicide bombings and other
attacks over the past 42 months.
