Former Israeli ambassador to the United States Michael Oren has joined the thus-far quiet chorus of criticism of recognition by the U.S. of the Palestinian Unity Government (PUG).

Oren publicly stated on Sunday morning, June 15, that Israel now knows Hamas is behind the kidnapping of the three Israeli boys from Gush Etzion on Thursday night.

He also wrote that Hamas publicly praised the kidnapping, and has ordered Palestinian Arabs in the territories to obstruct Israel’s rescue efforts.

Ambassador Oren has a bottom line message: the U.S. should rescind its hasty recognition of the Fatah-Hamas Unity Government.

Oren served as Israel’s ambassador to the U.S. from 2009 until 2013.
