Mashaal: Netanyahu Threats Don't Scare Us


Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal said, Friday, that Israel could not stop the reconciliation process between Hamas and the Fatah faction of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. Referring to threats by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, he continued, "Netanyahu's threats don't scare us. On the contrary, they just strengthen the understanding that reconciliation is the right way for our Palestinian people and make it clear to us that we're going down the right path, the path of reconciliation."

Despite Hamas's efforts to oust Abbas and his own talk about stepping down, it appears he will continue to lead the PA, following talks, Thursday, in Cairo..
