Hamas on Sunday rejected US President Barack Obama’s call to recognize Israel and accused him of being biased in favor of Israel.

In response to Obama’s speech before AIPAC, Hamas also urged the Palestinian Authority to reconsider its policies toward the Middle East peace process, saying there was no point in relying on the US as an honest broker.

The PA, in contrast, did not respond by late Sunday to Obama’s address to AIPAC.

Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan said that in light of Obama’s new speech, the PA should reconsider its position toward the peace process and increase efforts to achieve national unity.
