In anticipation of Hamas and Fatah signing a unity agreement on Wednesday, Israel Beiteinu said that the government should stop funding the Palestinian Authority.

"Israel Beitienu will demand that the government and the cabinet decide to stop all contact between Israel and the PA," the party announced in a statement, "including cooperation between government ministries and the PA and ceasing to transfer funds."

They added: "It is impossible to expect that Israel will transfer money to Hamas and fund acts against its citizens. Whoever says that bin Laden is a saint and a Muslim freedom fighter, as Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh did, and whoever does not allow the Red Cross access to the captive soldier Gilad Schalit, can not be a partner in negotiations - directly or indirectly."
