The United State's willingness to recognize the new government formed between Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas is equivalent to giving out a prize for terrorism, Tourism Minister Uzi Landau said on Thursday.

He continued and said that the new government is now legitimate due to the US's willingness to work with them, even though Hamas had not changed its stance on any of the prominent issues such as denouncing terrorism and recognizing Israel.
