The government of Israel is being forced to construct more settlement homes in the West Bank due to actions by Palestinians. Let me make clear to one and all the Israel government would never unilaterally construct new housing on the West Bank, but they were forced into such action because the Palestinian government led by President Abbas decided to form a unified government which included Hamas. Prime Minister Netanyahu made clear that he would never decide to engage in building if not for the new alliance. I am a bit confused, during the past ten years when Palestinians were NOT united, settlement houses went up and up and up. In other words, we Israelis build settlement homes if you are not united, and even more if you are. This clarifies the situation.
Reasons to welcome the new unity:
1. Once a part of the Palestinian government, Hamas becomes part of a government which recognizes the state of Israel.
2. If an agreement is reached between President Abbas and the Israel government, Hamas becomes part of that agreement.
3. Hamas leaders understand that if they engage in terrorism their agreement is null and void.

During the past eight years the leaders of Israel have complained and denounced former Iran President Ahmadinejad for denying that the Holocaust ever happened. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is furious at those who are “Holocaust deniers” because their refusal to accept the murder of millions of Jews is evidence they seek the murder of millions of Jews. Palestinian President Abbas, during a meeting with a Rabbi, made clear that he considered the Holocaust a terrible crime. He described the Holocaust as a “heinous crime” and among the worst to “have occurred against humanity in the modern era.” Of course, President Rouhani of Iran expressed warm regards for Jews in public.
So, Palestinian leaders are denouncing the Holocaust. And, the response from PM Netanyahu is–SILENCE. In other words, if an Arab leader denounces the existence of the Holocaust, then Netanyahu is furious and uses their words as evidence Muslims hate Jews, but when an Arab leader denounces the Holocaust itself, silence. This example is simply evidence that Prime Minister Netanyahu does not seek peace and reconciliation with Muslims. His goal is clear-transform the West Bank into a part of Israel and end peace forever!
