SWC: President Obama Must Tell Abbas to End Unity Government with Hamas or US Aid to PA Will End
The Simon Wiesenthal Center expresses its condolences and total solidarity with the families of Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel whose bodies where recovered near Hebron.
“This is not a time for ambiguity but for decisive action. Those are our children who were murdered by Hamas, but make no mistake the leadership of that terrorist organization is already planning the next attack against women and children,” said Rabbis Marvin Hier, SWC Founder and Dean and Abraham Cooper, SWC Associate Dean.
“President Obama must act by sending an unmistakable message to President Abbas: ‘Are you the leader of a government that seeks peace or the leader who accepts murderers of children as part of his government?’”
“President Obama must tell the Palestinian people that peace and Hamas are mutually exclusive and that the US will no longer agree to any contact with a Palestinian government where any member of Hamas – political, military, or technocrat,” Hier and Cooper concluded.
