Netanyahu is currently in Europe, trying to rally support for the view that including the rejectionist Hamas knocks any peace deal on the head.
This view is supported by strong statements from the English Chief Rabbi Sacks here and also by Larry Derfner. Based on comments here about the response to Netanyahu in England and France, it looks suspiciously like the leaders of these 2 countries don’t care whatever is said or known about Hamas. Hopefully, they are not acting with collusion from Obama. Jimmy Carter of course can always be relied on to fly the flag for Hamas, even as its leader bewails the “passing” of Bin Laden.
