Netanyahu: Palestinian Authority, like Hamas, wants to destroy us — but in stages

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tells the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that the Palestinian Authority wants to destroy Israel “in stages,” according leaks from the closed-door meeting published in Hebrew media outlets.

“The difference between Hamas and the PA is only that Hamas wants to destroy us here and now and the PA wants to do it in stages,” he is quoted as saying.

Netanyahu has repeatedly said he does not view the PA as a viable option to rule Gaza after the war with Hamas, citing its indirect support for terror through education and the payment of stipends to terrorists and their families.

The Biden Administration, by contrast, envisages a “revitalized” PA playing a central role in post-war Gaza.
