Netanyahu Agrees with Abbas on Disarming Hamas

(Times of Israel) Dov Lieber - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday: "We expect anyone talking about a peace process to recognize Israel and, of course, recognize a Jewish state, and we won't accept faux reconciliations under which the Palestinian side reconciles at the expense of our existence. We have a very straightforward attitude toward anyone who wants to effect such a reconciliation: Recognize the State of Israel, dismantle Hamas' military wing, sever the relationship with Iran, which calls for our destruction." A senior Israeli official said Tuesday that "Hamas is trying to gain international legitimacy without accepting Israel's right to exist, without disarming and without accepting the Quartet principles. Hamas remains a ruthless, mass-murdering terrorist organization that seeks Israel's destruction."
