Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhari said Sunday that the group was hurt by Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's statement made the previous day during which he denounced Hamas's takeover of the Gaza Strip. Mubarak described Hamas's takeover of Gaza as a "coup" and warned that group's conflict with the moderate Fatah movement could lead to the creation of two Palestinian entities. Abu Zuhari told BBC radio that the Egyptian president supports only one side on account of the other side. "Hamas was elected by law and agreed to establish a unity government with Fatah, but the one responsible for dissolving it is Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazzen, and not Hamas." He said.
