“We are being led around by Hamas’

More ministers speak before going into today’s weekly cabinet meeting.

Tourism Minister Uzi Landau says, according to Ynet, “Hamas is running the show, and we are being led by them. There is a very unpleasant feeling that Israel wants quiet at any price. This is a temporary quiet.”

“There is international credit that we are wasting,” he continues. “Because of the earlier rounds, we reached an arrangement and deterrence, and after that received a more difficult round. We are giving Hamas international status. There is no victory on the ground.”

Meanwhile, Science and Technology Minister Yaakov Peri condemns racism against Arabs. “I want to strenuously condemn the racism we are witnessing against Israeli Arabs since the start of the operation…They are part of us. We must show solidarity as the public has shown and stop the racism.”
