(Times of Israel / Worthy News)– In tough language rare for an Israeli diplomat in Washington, Israeli ambassador to the US Ron Dermer said Tuesday that Israel was "deeply disappointed" in the State Department's decision to continue dealing with the Palestinian Authority now that it has Hamas support.
"Israel is deeply disappointed with the State Department's comments today on the Palestinian unity government with Hamas, a terrorist organization responsible for the murder of many hundreds of Israelis, which has fired thousands of rockets at Israeli cities, and which remains committed to Israel's destruction," Dermer wrote in a Facebook post.
"This Palestinian unity government is a government of technocrats backed by terrorists, and should be treated as such," he said. "With suits in the front office and terrorists in the back office, it should not be business as usual."
