Noam Schalit on Monday criticized Prime Minister Binaymin Netanyahu's government for "giving in" to pressure and transferring tax funds to the Palestinian Authority, which had been withheld in the wake of the unity deal between Fatah and Hamas.
"Today, after the reconciliation deal signed between Fatah and Hamas and the renewal of the Palestinian Authority's sovereignty over the Gaza Strip, the PA actually is responsible for the kidnapped Israeli soldier held by his captors, which are also part of the new government set to be formed. They are holding a hostage for the purposes of extortion and bargaining," Schalit said.
Schalit said that the Palestinian Authority, together with Hamas, was now guilty of "a clear war crime."
