Mahmoud Azahar, leader of Hamas in the West Bank, announced Wednesday that he would be willing to consider negotiating with Israel, as long as any negotiations would serve the Palestinian interest. Azahar refused to consider disarming, telling Israel Radio that the Palestinian people need weapons in order to protect themselves. According to Azahar, when Israel "refused" to withdraw from the West Bank peacefully, it lost both status and credibility.
