(KETK/CNN) — If Israel cannot reach peace with Palestinians through an agreement, "we'll seek other ways" to achieve peace, . "I'm not going to accept a stalemate", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told CNN Sunday.
Netanyahu called on Palestinian Mahmoud Abbas to "tear up" his pact with Hamas.
"We're not going to negotiate with a government backed by Hamas unless Hamas changes its position and says it's willing to recognize Israel," he said.
The Prime Minister said, Mahmoud Abbas can't have it both ways by calling the Holocaust the most heinous crime in modern history while embracing Hamas, a terrorist organization that openly denies the Holocaust.
