Israeli Official: Obama Backed Our Stance on Hamas


An Israeli official said on Monday that the United States had in the past backed Israel’s position that it will not negotiate with any Palestinian Authority government that is supported by Hamas, even if it is made up of political independents and apolitical technocratic figures who meet international conditions for acceptance.

In fact, that official told The New York Times, Israel had received “a specific commitment from the American administration” backing that position.
