“Sooner or later we will have to take control of Gaza, in order to get rid of the Hamas regime. We do not need to reoccupy it permanently, but we do need to remove from Gaza the option of (terrorists) firing rockets on us. If and when the moment comes when we must retake Gaza, and that moment is coming soon, the operation will have to be a very quick one.”
"We cannot allow the areas that Israel evacuated to be used for terror attacks on us. The only solution is a reversal of the process, a retaking of Gaza."
