    NAZARETH, (PIC)-- Israel has called on the United Nations to pressure the Palestinian government to recognize Israel after the signing a historic national unity deal by Hamas and Fatah.

    Israeli minister Ehud Barak phoned Saturday UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and expressed Israel's concerns over the agreement initially signed on Wednesday.

    Earlier, Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haneyya called on the Palestinian Liberation Organization to renounce its recognition of Israel in response to its rejection of the initial signing of the Palestinian reconciliation deal.

    ”There is no longer an excuse to recognize the Zionist entity after its rejection of Palestinian rights and internal unity,” the premier said. ”Its existence on our land is illegal and it cannot be recognized.”

    I'm not sure there is anything the UN can do about it now as according to Rula Jebreal in the interview I left link to earlier, the votes are already done and there will be a State of Israel in September. She was certain it is a deal already done.
