US Vows to 'Work With' Palestinian Arab 'Unity' Government

Washington said Monday it will work with the Palestinian Arab unity government and maintain aid, while "watching closely" to ensure it respects the principle of non-violence, AFP reports.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Washington believes Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has "formed an interim technocratic government... that does not include members affiliated with Hamas."

"With what we know now, we will work with this government," Psaki said.

Abbas has insisted that a 'unity' government would be based on what he called"the four Palestinian principles": recognizing Israel, recognizing the terms of international agreements, and the explicit rejection of violence and terrorism.

But Hamas continues to be adamant over its full control of a "unity" government, expressing over and over again that it would remain in control of both Gaza and the PA after elections and insisting that Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh would rule the government.

More recently, Hamas announced that any "unity" government would be unequivocally subject to their approval before being established.

Funding terror

Earlier Monday, Hamas and Fatah swore in a "unity" government, headed by top-ranking PA officials but including several Hamas directives. Meanwhile, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh and several Gaza politicians left the government, vowing to step away from politics but maintain the fight for the "Palestinian nation."

This is not the USA cooperating with the “Palestinian” terrorists — it is Obama.

I’m sympathetic, but you’re wrong. It’s the USA cooperating with terrorists, and our cooperation will go a very long way to legitimizing them.
