Bennett: Don't Blame Abbas, Blame the Palestinian People


Economy Minister and Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett on Friday said that the blame on the Hamas-Fatah unity government should not be placed on Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, but rather on the Palestinian Arab people.

“The anger against Abbas over the Fatah-Hamas unity government is misplaced The problem is not Abbas. Rather, it is the Palestinian public that does not accept the State of Israel,” wrote Bennett on his Facebook page.
