Senior member of Israel's Kadima Party hinted that the future Palestinian Authority prime minister could be assassinated

From the Jewish Telegraph:

Avi Dichter, a former Shin Bet chief tipped as the next defence minister if Kadima wins the March 28 elections in Israel, said that Ismail Haniyeh should not consider himself "immune" once he takes over the Palestinian Authority government.

"In my eyes, he remains a man of terror, no matter what post he serves in," Dichter told the newspaper Yediot Aharonot. "If there is a terror attack to which Israel decides to respond with a preventive measure, then Haniyeh would be a legitimate target because Hamas cannot carry out a terror attack without Haniyeh's authorisation."

He must know Efi Eitam quite well. Eitam was quoted by Hebrew media as calling on the Israeli government to liquidate all Hamas representatives in the PLC. He said, "they should all be added to the intelligence hit list."
