US Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-NY), top Democrat serving on the House Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia, responded to the Hamas-Fatah agreement to form a national unity government, saying that the US will withhold any assistance to a terrorist group.

"As in prior cases, the United States will be compelled by both law and decency to withhold any assistance that could fall into the hands or control or even partial control of anyone reporting to, or belonging to a terrorist entity, as is Hamas," Ackerman explained. "And in the current political climate, even assistance that would otherwise have gone to parts of the Palestinian Authority untainted by terrorism may no longer be salvageable. "
