Mofaz: Hamas Setting the Agenda in the Gaza-Area

Chairman Shaul Mofaz of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee said, on Sunday, "The Israeli government has eroded the deterrent power of the state of Israel. More than that - it has allowed a terrorist organization to determine the agenda for the past two and a half years, rather than fight it with all its might."

Addressing the opening day of the 11th annual conference of the Institute for Antiterror Policy at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center, the former chief of staff and defense minister added, "The problem of this government is that it has lost all the legitimacy it had in the world and is portrayed as an occupier that does not want to implement the vision of two states for two peoples. The government of Israel claims it is 'standing firm' but, in fact, it is doing nothing and has decided not to decide."
