ABSTRACT
The article reports that Israeli Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz has increased pressure on the Palestinian Authority (PA) on February 15, 2006 by threatening to cut off all ties if Hamas representatives were appointed to positions of power. Mofaz's comments come as Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is set to chair a cabinet meeting to discuss two possible policy options. Tel Aviv will either sever all ties the moment a Hamas-led government is announced, or will issue an ultimatum to PA president Mahmoud Abbas demanding that he dismantle all militant groups or Israel will cut off all contact with the PA.
