Hamas will never recognize Israel's right to exist or put its terrorist army under Palestinian Authority (PA) control according to a senior Hamas official, who on Tuesday revealed his version of the unity government deal reached last Wednesday.
Mahmoud Al-Zahar, a senior official and co-founder of Hamas, told Reuters that "Abbas is not telling them (the world) the truth. He says 'this is my government'. But it is not his government. It is a government of national unity. He is marketing it in this way to minimize (international) pressure."
