Netanyahu Repeats Call to Abbas to Break from Hamas


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu repeated, Thursday, his call for Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority to part company with the Hamas terror organization, with which Abbas recently formed a unity government.

Referring, at the Israel Air Force pilots' course graduation ceremony,  to the abduction of three Israeli teens, Netanyahu said, "A short time after the kidnapping I said that those who perpetrated this activity were terrorists of Hamas. And indeed, today, the security services of Israel have published the names of two of the perpetrators of this heinous crime. I now expect President Abbas, who said important things in Saudi Arabia, to stand by those words and to break his pact with the Hamas terrorist organization that kidnaps children and calls for the destruction of Israel."
