Ariel Sharon’s son: Unthinkable for Likud to work with ‘Hamas backers’ in Ra’am

Gilad Sharon, the son of late prime minister Ariel Sharon, calls the Islamist Ra’am party “Hamas supporters” and says it is “unthinkable” that Likud is considering forming a government based on its backing.

“The Islamic Movement in Israel is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood,” he tells 103FM Radio.

“It is unacceptable. I don’t believe there’s a Likudnik who can accept such a thing. It’s inconceivable that a few days ago the prime minister said there would not be a government leaning on the Islamic Movement and all the ministers agreed, and today it’s the opposite and the ministers again agree.”
