Jacob Walles, the US consul-general in Jerusalem, said Saturday that the international aid embargo imposed after Hamas won parliamentary elections last year will no longer apply to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's government, and that he expected it to be lifted this week. The US move essentially would reset US policy to the days before Hamas swept legislative elections in early 2006 and upended US and international peacemaking. The United States, Israel and the European Union regard Hamas as a terrorist organization.
