GAZA CITY: Palestine: The U.S. decision to put the head of Hamas on its terror blacklist Wednesday will not deter the group's "resistance" to Israel, the movement said.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel will retain security control over the Palestinians as part of any future peace deal, deepening Palestinian fears that Israel and the Trump administration are colluding on a proposal that will fall far short of their dreams of independence.Netanyahu's statement exposed a deepening rift that has emerged between the U.S. and Israel on one hand, and the Palestinians and the Europeans on the other, ahead of an anticipated peace push by the Trump administration.U.S. President Donald Trump has said he would support Palestinian independence only if Israel agrees.
