Netanyahu tosses Hamas policy paper on Israel into waste bin

Netanyahu tosses Hamas policy paper on Israel into waste binBy Ori Lewis JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday symbolically tossed into a bin a Hamas policy paper published last week that set out an apparent softening of the Palestinian Islamist group’s stance toward Israel. In a document issued last Monday, Hamas said it was dropping its longstanding call for Israel’s destruction, but said it still rejected the Jewish state’s right to exist and continued to back “armed struggle” against it. The Israeli government has said the document aimed to deceive the world that Hamas was becoming more moderate.
