Netanyahu labels U.S. media reports "fake news"

Carolyn Kaster/AP

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu called the U.S. media "fake news" for its reporting on Hamas' new political document. In a new video, he argued that even if though Hamas wrote that they will accept the Palestinian state based on the 1967 border lines, they remain a terrorist group and are not interested in peace with Israel.

"So why does Hamas say there is a consensus for a smaller Palestinian state now? In order to destroy Israel later. They want to use their state to destroy our state..."
