JERUSALEM, April 27 (Reuters) - Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu said on Wednesday Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas
could not hope to forge a peace deal with Israel if he pursued a
reconciliation accord with the Islamist group Hamas.
"The Palestinian Authority must choose either peace with
Israel or peace with Hamas. There is no possibility for peace
with both. Hamas aspires to destroy Israel and fires rockets at
our cities ... at our children," Netanyahu said after the two
Palestinian groups announced they had overcome past differences.
