JNS.orgHamas could seize control of Judea and Samaria as a result of the recently formed Palestinian unity government, Israel Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Tuesday at the Herzliya Conference.

“The Palestinian reconciliation is misrepresented,” Ya’alon said. “If anything happens as a result of the reconciliation, it will be Hamas’s takeover of Judea and Samaria.”

Regarding Hamas’s partner in the new government, Ya’alon said the Palestinian Authority “is considered moderate, denies our right to a national home.”

“If you don’t understand that, then you don’t understand why the conflict remains unresolved,” he said.
