Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said Friday that he would go to early elections if the current round of coalition talks with Hamas fails. Abbas also said new elections did not mean Hamas would be forced out of power. "We say either there is a (unity) government or elections," he said. "And elections don't mean we want to throw Hamas into the sea. It has been elected and can be elected again."
