He noted two anniversaries - one, today, is the 100th day of the "intifada," and the recent 20th anniversary of Israel's killing of Yahya Ayyash, Hamas' chief bombmaker known as "the Engineer."
Hamas says that the official beginning of the current uprising was the murder of Eitam and Na'ama Henkin.
The popular leader said that Hamas still has some surprises planned for attacks on Israel. He may have been referring to the plot to assassinate Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu that was announced today, but there are almost certainly many other such plots as Hamas struggles to appear as the leader of the uprising.
Haniyeh again explicitly reiterated what Hamas apologists in the West deny - that Hamas will accept nothing less than the complete destruction of Israel from the river to the sea. He stressed that Hamas not happy only controlling the Gaza Strip but is fighting to liberate all of "Palestine," starting with Jerusalem.
Hamas media released a video, with heroic music, to celebrate the 100 days of terror.
