He believes unity benefits Israel. Perhaps he doesn't understand longstanding Israeli plans explained above.
"We will rehabilitate Gaza and the West Bank and the society that is divided due to the political rift," he said.

"If there's a national unity government, we'll support (Abbas) in his policy of obtaining the rights of that state. Strengthened, (he'll) negotiate with Israel about implementing the UN resolutions."

"No protected person may be punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited."
Other political arrests included:
PLC Hamas-connected members Basem al-Za'areer, Imad Nofal, Ryad Radad, Fathi Kar'awi, and Yasser Mansour.
