Israeli Ambassador Deletes Tweet Signaling Willingness To Sit Down With Hamas (Blames Staffer)

Source: Buzzfeed

The Israeli Ambassador to the United States deleted a tweet Saturday evening in which he said Israel would be willing to sit down with Hamas if they stopped firing at Israel.

"Just appeared on the set of #CNN: #Israel willing to sit down with #Hamas -- if they just stop shooting at us," Ambassador Michael Oren said in a now-deleted tweet.

Oren followed up on his deletion, blaming the mistake on a staffer.

"Correction: the earlier tweet about my CNN interview was sent erroneously by a staffer," he said.

The deleted tweet Oren attributed to a staffer appeared to be a paraphrase of a comment he made during his CNN interview were he said, while not mentioning Hamas directly, that Israel would be willing to sit down and negotiate.

"The people, and the government, and the State of Israel want peace with their neighbors. We are willing to sit down and negotiate with them, if they are willing to sit down and negotiate with us. Everything's on the table. We sign on to the two-state solution we're committed. Just stop shooting at us," Oren told CNN's Don Lemon.
