SOUNDBITE (English) Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister:"Hamas again showed it's cruel eagerness to abuse Gazan civilians. Who's the humanitarian pause for? For them. For Hamas, the people Hamas reportedly respresenting. It violates the humanitarian cease-fire that is suppose to serve them and would serve them. So rejected a cease-fire, promised, that promised the Gazan people immediate relief. Hamas again mistakenly believes that the people of Israel do not have the will and determination to fight them and Hamas will again learn the hard way that Israel will do whatever it must do to protects it's people. I call on all responsible international leaders, and decent people everywhere, to stand with Israel now. Stand with Israel as it confronts Hamas. Stand with Israel as it defends itself against Hamas' deliberate and indiscriminate attacks on our civilians. Stand with Israel, a democracy fighting a ruthless terrorist organization commited to our destruction. There is only one place for decent, civilized people to stand and that is to stand with Israel."STORYLINE:Israel's prime minister has warned Hamas that it will pay an intolerable price if it continues to fire rockets at Israel and that Israeli troops will operate as long as necessary to restore calm for Israeli citizens.Benjamin Netanyahu also suggested in televised remarks Saturday that the Israeli military will reassess its Gaza operation once troops complete the demolition of Hamas military tunnels under the Gaza-Israel border.
