Official: Hamas is against dialogue with Israel
Hamas official Salah Bardawil said that the movement "opposes any dialogue with Israel, especially concerning the diplomatic issue." Bardawil responded to a statement by President Shimon Peres, who said that Israel is ready to enter into negotiations with Hamas if the movement will recognize the terms of the Quartet.


"Peres must choose between settling on Palestinian soil and waiting for further attacks and leaving Palestine," Bardawil said. (Elior Levy)
