The world needs to condemn Hamas, support Israel’s right to protect its citizens, and call on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to end his unity pact with the terrorist organization, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told Quartet envoy Tony Blair on Tuesday.

At the start of their meeting, Netanyahu said that the ”brutal”  kidnapping of the three Israeli teenagers -- Naphtali Fraenkel, Gil-Ad Shaer, and Eyal Yifrach -- reveals Hamas’s “true face.”

Hamas, Netanyahu said, is not only intent on killing Israelis, but also kidnapping children.

“Anybody who supports peace must tell the Palestinian Authority that they cannot build a government that is backed by the kidnappers of children and the murderers of innocents,” he said.
