Muslim States Call on Hamas to Recognize Quartet Terms

(Jerusalem Post) Lahav Harkov - The Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean called on Monday for Hamas to accept the Quartet's three conditions: renunciation of violence, recognition of Israel, and accepting the agreements signed in the past by Israel and the PLO. Deputy Knesset Speaker MK Majallie Whbee (Kadima) said that all of the countries attending the meeting in Croatia, including Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria, as well as the Palestinian Authority, voted in favor of the resolution. The assembly also called for a return to Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. "This is the first time, after 17 assembly meetings, that Israel is not the central topic and is not attacked from all sides," said Whbee. "When the Arab world is busy with itself - regime change and violent civilian protests - democratic Israel is popular and sought after," he added.
