Netanyahu says Abbas must abandon unity deal with Hamas


Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas must abandon Fatah's pact with Hamas if he wants peace, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told the BBC.

Israel earlier suspended peace talks with the Palestinians in response to a unity deal between the two factions.

The US has voiced its "disapproval", but is not ready to declare the talks over and is "still making the effort".

Fatah and Hamas agreed on Wednesday to form a unity government within weeks and hold elections six months later.

They have been at odds since Hamas, which won parliamentary elections in 2006, ousted forces loyal to Mr Abbas and Fatah in the Gaza Strip during clashes in 2007 and set up a rival government.


This Fatah/Hamas deal virtually condemns the current peace talks to the garbage can.

There is NO WAY Israel will ever enter into negotiations with Hamas - who openly wish to destroy the Jewish State.
