Netanyahu: European Position on Hamas, PA Unity is ‘Strange’

The Hamas charter contains a vow to annihilate the State of Israel through violent "resistance" but the EU praises unity with Hamas.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu slammed European Union support for the Palestinian Authority unity deal between Fatah and the Hamas terror organization on Monday.

Netanyahu pointed out the bizarre inconsistency between the European position on the PA reconciliation deal that is allegedly to result in a unity government between the Fatah and Hamas terror faction – and its clear condemnation of the recent deadly terror attack on the Jewish Museum in Brussels.

He told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday he finds it “strange that European governments who strongly condemn the shooting attacks in Brussels, at the same time speak kindly of the unity agreement with Hamas, a terrorist organization that carries out and praises such attacks.”

The prime minister pointed out that the attack which took the lives of four people little more than a week ago was a sign that radical Islamic terrorism is “rearing its head in Europe.”

Leftist Meretz leader MK Zehava Gal-On, however, claimed “The unity between Hamas and Fatah is essential.” She contended the deal would transform PA Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas “into the president of all Palestinians . . . on the condition that the new government will recognize the State of Israel, recognize previous agreements and stop violence and terrorism.”

Since the Hamas charter is entirely based on its vow to erase the State of Israel and banish every Israeli Jew from the Land through violent “resistance,” it is not clear why Gal-On should believe unity with Hamas would facilitate peace.

    Yes, PM, this does not make sense at all in this crazy world. Therefore I do believe the conspiracy theory about the NWO and UN that are evil and wanting to play G-d. They have been planning a ‘sustainable earth and governance’ since 1972. They are humanist materialists who do not keep G-d, the only and true Creator and Owner of the world, into account . ‘Sustainable earth’ is the depopulation of the world and keeping populations low (their goal is under 1 billion!!!) and absolute control so that what we consume does not exceed what we produce (this is the theory) but to achieve this goal they have used the Media and Hollywood to brainwash people. This is what they started with: planned parenthood, abortion or infanticide, pushing the homosexual agenda (they cannot reproduce), wars, funding radical revolutionists and terrorists to do the dirty work for them of killing off people, eradicating the Judeo/Christian ideology which cherishes human life as G-d-given and owned (we do not have the right to take lives or will be accountable to G-d – although we may defend ourselves but they put gun-control laws to restrain us from doing that), immorality and the introduction of AIDS from apes to the human bloodstream which is a sexually transmitted killer. They also want to dumb society down so they can more easily be controlled by the elite few: therefore evolution and outcome based education and pushing hedonism in film industry, shallow minded people with emphasis on ‘how I look’ instead of what I have between my ears. They do not take into account that G-d can send droughts in answer to not keeping His law and His ways. G-d’s blessing is not on this earth as we can see in the amount of natural disasters hitting this planet. G-d will not be mocked. Instead of creating a ‘sustainable earth’ they are creating a demonic infested cursed planet.

  15. Hamas and PA has always been united. They just got tired of the ruse.Europeans love stability, comfort, ease and are always prone to some power that will take advantage of that. Terrorists are like murderers at a birthday party in Europe. It is not strange. These people are not “organizational” driven but “cause” driven. They want control and will kill anyone who denies it.

  16. This is preposterous and evil. The UN is perverse.

  17. Uzi Kattan says:

    THen destroy the PA and Hamas instead of talking!
