Netanyahu told the Hollande that he "Appreciates the latter's strong and consistent stand against anti-Semitism."
Speaking in reference to the Palestinian unity government officially announced on Monday, Netanyahu told Hollande that, "The Palestinian unity government with backing from the Hamas terrorist organization is a Palestinian step against peace and in favor of terrorism and that, therefore, it would be a mistake to grant it legitimacy."
