MK Tibi: PM's criticism of Hamas-Fatah unity is 'chutzpa'

April 28, 2011 10:58

Knesset MK Ahmed Tibi on Thursday morning commented on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's criticism of the unity deal between Hamas and Fatah, saying: "Threats by Netanyahu and the US Congress against the Palestinians in light of the reconciliation agreement are arrogant, hypocritical and Israeli chutzpa."

Earlier, Netanyahu said the PA needed to choose between a peace deal with Israel and one with Hamas.

Tibi added that "In Israel, they sanctify the value of national unity, but demand that the Palestinians remain divided and weak. Palestinian unity will promote the goals of the Palestinian people to achieve freedom and independence."
