Hamas' deputy political bureau chief Moussa Abu Marzouk has called on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to hand over the Palestinian control of the West Bank to Hamas.
Marzouk was commenting on Abbas threat to "return the PA keys to Israel" if no progress is made in peace talks after the elections. He wrote on his Facebook page, "Why does he want to hand the PA over to Netanyahu? The best thing would be to hand it over to Hamas." (Elior Levy)
