Report: Obama may aid Hamas-backed Palestinian government

Published: 04.27.09, 08:50 / Israel News

The Obama administration has asked Congress for minor changes in US law that would permit aid to continue flowing to Palestinians in the event Hamas-backed officials become part of a unified Palestinian government, the Los Angeles Times reported.


However, senior American officials have stressed that the move did not mean the US was planning to recognize or aid Hamas, which it defines as a terrorist organization. Under law, any US aid would require that the Palestinian government meet three long-standing criteria: recognizing Israel, renouncing violence and agreeing to follow past Israeli-Palestinian agreements.
