Israel Root Cause of Mideast Crises: Iran's UN Envoy

Israel Root Cause of Mideast Crises: Iran's UN Envoy

Jason Greenblatt, who has repeatedly visited the region to seek ways to restart peace talks, laid out a series of conditions in Washington's first detailed response to the landmark reconciliation deal signed between Hamas and Fatah last week.

US President Donald Trump's special representative for worldwide negotiations said Thursday that an emerging Palestinian unity government must recognize Israel and disarm Hamas movement.

President Donald Trump's Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt said Hamas must renounce violence and recognize Israel.

The national unity deal between Hamas and Fatah is an "internal Palestinian matter" that will help bring peace, a Fatah spokesman told Al Jazeera after a USA official demanded Hamas disarm.

Under the agreement, the Palestinian Authority should take control of the crossings of the Gaza Strip by 1 November.

"If Hamas is to play any role in a Palestinian government, it must accept these basic requirements", he added. Top Hamas terrorist Saleh al-Arouri announced over the weekend that among other things, the deal would integrate Hamas and Fatah security and police forces in Gaza and in PA-controlled areas of Yehudah and Shomron, which "means partnership in decisions of war and peace", al-Arouri was quoted as saying.

The statement backed a resolution by Israel's security cabinet on Sunday declaring that Jerusalem would not negotiate with the PA until Hamas was disarmed and agreed to disavow attacks on Israelis. In an official statement, the government said that "as in the past, we continue to hold the position that the government of Israel will not conduct negotiations with a Palestinian government that depends on the inclusion of a terrorist group that seeks the destruction of Israel". Hamas governs the Gaza Strip while Fatah has set up offices in the West Bank.

"Hamas asserts that it is moving ahead with the implementation of all reconciliation steps and will not pay attention to any attempt to sabotage or disrupt this path".

"A Palestinian government must dismantle the terror organizations and recognize Israel". Accelerating the political settlement of the Palestine issue through dialogue and consultation is in the fundamental interests of both Palestinians and Israelis and conducive to durable peace and stability in the region, he said. Israel captured the territories in 1967, though it withdrew from Gaza in 2005.
