Israel's Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer reproached the State Department on Monday for its decision to continue to uphold ties with the Palestinian Authority following the swearing in of a Fatah-Hamas unity government.

"Hamas hasn't changed. It remains as committed to Israel's destruction today as it was yesterday" Dermer warned on Facebook.

He charged that the technocratic heads of the new Palestinian unity government were just posing to front the body backed by terrorists, and the government should be recognized as such.

"With suits in the front office and terrorists in the back office, it should not be business as usual," said the Israeli envoy.
