Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh says the rise of the far-right in Israel “is a natural result of the growing manifestation of extremism and racism in Israeli society, which our people have been suffering from for years,” according to Middle East Monitor.

“We were under no illusions that the Israeli election would produce a partner for peace,” he adds.

“The identity of the winner in the Israeli election does not matter, as the difference between the Israeli parties is the same as the difference between Pepsi-Cola and Coca-Cola.”
