Minister Accuses Abbas of 'Bluffing' on Threats

Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz dismissed, Tuesday, threats from Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority (PA) to disband the PA and unite with Hamas against Israel.

In a Facebook post, Katz wrote,"Now for the moment of truth: it is obvious that Abbas is bluffing again. He was not ready to make concessions, so he ran to the United Nations and ran to embrace Hamas. The peace talks actually ended in nothing and it is time to unite and stand together against potential pressures."
