Kadima MK: 'Hamas-Fatah deal is great failure of Netanyahu'

The unity deal between Hamas and Fatah is "the great failure" of the Netanyahu government, Kadima MK Nachman Shai said Thursday morning in an official statement.
"Netanyahu failed to understand the strategic changes in the Arab world and their implications on the Palestinians. The unity between Hamas and Fatah produces a new political and security reality, which surprises Israel and forces it to present a new political program that is not under the control of the prime minister. The result is that the road to international recognition of a unilaterally-declared Palestinian state is open," Shai said.
