Iran: Hamas Invites Obama To Peace Talks

From Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency:

Hamas invites Obama to peace talks

November 8, IRNA

Hamas politburo says US president-elect Barack Obama has no other alternative but to talk to this Islamic movement if he wants to deal with the Middle East.

“The American administration, if they want to deal with the region, Palestine and the Arab-Israeli conflict, they have no other option than deal with Hamas because we are a real force on the ground, effective,” Khaled Meshall told Sky News in an exclusive interview from Damascus.

He said Hamas is a movement that won a majority of votes in the Palestinian election and therefore Obama should hold talks with its leaders.

Referring to the recent US elections, Meshall said “there is no doubt the elections were a big change when you get an American president with African roots.

He also extended his congratulations to Obama, alarming him to become aware of “duties to the United States and in the whole world and in hotspots especially in the Middle East.”

Meshall, who lives in exile in Syria, said his movement is ready for dialogue with the incoming US president with an open mind on the basis that the American administration respects the rights of Palestinians and options of Hamas.

“We welcome any change in the US foreign policies to end favoritism towards Israel as well as aggression on the region,” he said.

And the Anointed One is sure to attend. After all, they are some of his staunchest supporters.

Isn’t it a beautiful thing, the way the world is finally coming together?

    Chat em up. Wave fingers in front of their eyes. Move pea quickly under shells. Explain why no really means yes and yes really means no.

    Get em involved in some community service.

    Phantom “Hamas” problem solved.
