NO PEACE TALKS UNLESS HAMAS RECOGNIZES ISRAEL

0

WASHINGTON D.C.: There will be no negotiations with a Palestinian unity government unless the Hamas movement gives up its vision of destroying Israel and embraces peace, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday (Monday in Manila). Speaking on CNN, the Israeli leader said the preferable course of action to get peace negotiations back on track would be for Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas to renounce Hamas, the Islamist movement whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel. “Either Hamas disavows the destruction of Israel and embraces peace and denounces terror, or president Abbas renounces Hamas,” Netanyahu told CNN’s State of the Union.
