Hamas doesn't want Israel to stop Iran's A-bomb efforts 

Via Asharq Alawsat Newspaper (English), Hamas says will step up attacks if Israel hits Iran:

Palestinian militant group Hamas will step up its attacks on Israeli targets if the Jewish state attacks its key ally in the region, Iran, Hamas chief-in-exile Khaled Meshaal said on Thursday.

'If Israel attacks Iran then Hamas will widen and increase its confrontation of Israelis inside Palestine,' Meshaal told reporters in Tehran, where he has held three days of talks with top political and security officials.
What he means to threaten us with is that Hamas will step up its efforts to attack us if we try to stop Iran from building the nuclear bomb it plans to drop on us. Of course, they will try to increase their attacks even if we don't do anything about Iran. After all, that's what they've been foaming at the mouth about every day since we killed their leader Yassin a few years back. Also after we killed Rantisi, his replacement. And of course all the anonymous replacements and deputies since Rantisi. Believe me, we know what he is talking about.

So we have a choice between, on the one hand, threats and attempted attacks by Hamas, or on the other hand, threats and attempted attacks by Hamas, plus an Iranian nuclear bomb. Hmmm. Let me think about that one for a few more months and I'll get back to you Khaled. Where did you say you were staying again? Just so we can reach you with Israel's answer.
