Right-winger Avigdor Lieberman vowed six weeks ago that if he were defense minister he would give Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh 48 hours to return the bodies of dead Israeli soldiers or be assassinated.

Now that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has expanded his governing coalition by bringing in Lieberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu party, the Hamas leader in Gaza’s days are ostensibly numbered.
Dr. Yuval Dror, dean of the communications track at the College of Management (and occasional Haaretz contributor), has thus set up the website isismailhaniyehdeadyet.com to remind Lieberman of his pledge.
“Because we’re only talking about 48 hours, which is really short, I bought the domain to track whether Israel’s new defense minister, Avigdor Lieberman, fulfills that promise,” Dror wrote on his blog. “I’m convinced that within 48 hours I’ll change the word NO to the word YES. Why? Because only the right wing can, that’s why.”
