Nationalist politicians reacted angrily to news of the meeting between Palestinian Authority and Fatah head (PA) Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas head Khaled Mashaal, and Abbas’s statement that there are “no more differences” between the two movements.
“The Authority, which aspired to be a body that controls and administers the Palestinians’ lives, is a terror body for all intents and purposes,” Edelstein said.
“Abu Mazen chose today to escalate the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians and the results of the partnership with Hamas will be a disaster for the Palestinians and the entire region,” he added.
MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) said that from now on, the government of Israel needs to treat the PA as it treats Hamas and define it as a terror entity and a clear enemy.
