Israel to Hamas: Free soldier or cease to exist

Israel 'will ensure Hamas govt toppled' if soldier slain

Israel will work to ensure the Hamas-led government falls if a soldier kidnapped by Palestinian militants is not released alive, a high-ranking security official said.

"We will make sure that the Hamas government ceases to operate if the kidnapped soldier is not returned to us alive," the source told AFP on condition of anonymity.

Them's sounds like fightin' words...

As much as we'd all love for the Hamas "government" to fall, I'd rather it not be done at the expense of an IDF's soldier's life.

Pray for his release.
