BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A spokesperson for the Palestinian Authority security forces on Sunday accused Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu of supporting terrorism by encouraging Jewish settler attacks on Palestinian civilians and property.

The remarks came in response to a speech by Netanyahu during the weekly Israeli cabinet meeting, when he said that Hamas was taking control "inside the PA" and called for "international pressure" on Abbas to "reverse course and end cooperation with Hamas."

"Those who thought that the Palestinian unity between Hamas and Fatah would moderate Hamas were mistaken," Netanyahu said as reported by the Jerusalem Post.

"Instead of the Palestinian Authority taking control of Gaza, there are increasing signs that the exact opposite is taking place -- that Hamas is increasing its control inside the PA in Judea and Samaria," he added.

Spokesperson for the Palestinian security forces Adnan Dmeiri, however, countered that "Netanyahu and his right wing extremist government are seeking to muddle Palestinian reconciliation and foil the national consensus government."

In a phone call with Ma'an, Dmeiri said that the Israeli government was doing do its best to lay obstacles and "mines" in the way of Palestinian reconciliation after it had failed to convince the United States and other world powers to boycott the Palestinian national consensus government.

The unity government, he added, would endeavor to support peace in the Middle East.

He charged, however, that Netanyahu's government is a major supporter of "'terrorism" given its continuous support for Jewish settlers' attacks on the Palestinian people and their properties.

Dmeiri said that the Palestinian security services were committed and able to keep the peace and order in cooperation with the Palestinian people.

The two largest Palestinian political parties Hamas and Fatah formed a government of national unity last week five weeks after signing a historic accord that ended a seven-year long division.

Although the international community welcomed the move, Israel opposed it and has threatened sanctions. Israel is against Hamas' involvement in the coalition, as it says Hamas does not recognize its right to exist and is committed to its destruction.

Palestinian leaders, however, have countered that the unity government is committed to the principles of the PLO, which has long recognized Israel's right to exist and renounced violence.

Israel, meanwhile, has never recognized the Palestinian right to exist, nor has it renounced violence.

"Instead of the Palestinian Authority taking control of Gaza"?Well,seeing as the PA/Fatah are still,essentially,a Zionist-proxy,that would mean that Israel takes control inside Gaza again.Or,of course,not care if life crumbles to more bombscape dust containing BOTH Hamas&Fatah.After all,when does a "Good Arab" become "bad"?When he doesn't obey Israel which wants them ALL dead anyway,from the cradle,if not womb!When Bibi says 'moderate',he means Zionist occupation-compliant! SUMUD Palestine!!!!

- The world leaders are done listening to your accusations of Israel*, and they will only listen to your words of peace to Israel, so - Unless you start talking to Israel**, you may as well be mute !! * Israel has favored economic status at the EU and USA, and Australia does NOT even consider Jerusalem "Occupied" anymore. ** Peace talks will only be possible during construction of Jewish homes on some lands that you claim should be Palestine's.

Anyone with a thought process, based upon the regional realities, "thought that the Palestinian unity between Hamas and Fatah would" more radicalized Fatah towards Hamas' support for "armed resistance" (or in other words, Murder & Terrorism), then the other way around !!

@3 - No,you just tell them to go kill, beat up, uproot trees, spray graffiti, stalk, and terrorize Palestinians directly and keep them oppressed with your failed policies and apartheid treatment of them, that you Israelis are better than the Palestinians which clearly you are not. Palestinians victims far outnumber Israelis. But then you already knew that. Thanks for giving me the chance to set the hasbara crap you people spew correct.

All you apologists for Israel, just remember that Israel was born out of terrorism. Look at its history from the time the UN Partition Plan was promulgated to now and see what acts of terrorism were committed in the name of "war of independence" . . Just read a bit of history. And I mean history as it was written at the time, not as re-written hasbara BS.

"Netanyahu govt. is major supporter of terrorism." Remember what Netanyahu said post 9/11 - “We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq,” ref. Various world media.

Hyperbole. And after the bombing during intifadas one and two, disingenuous.

Yes, Netanyahu is a supporter of terrorism. He is an Israeli but not a Jew. There is a difference between both. An Israeli is the one that came from Europe or Eastern Europe during WW2, used terrorism, and create a State based on their own bad luck. A Jew is the one that lived there thousand years ago and lived peacefully with the Arabs/Palestinians and around the Middle-East where they are Arabs first than Jews, Christians and Muslims.
