A senior Hamas official referred to German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle's decision not to meet with members of the Hamas leadership during his visit to Gaza on Monday as "insulting," DPA reported.

"It was completely wrong to come to Gaza and not meet with the legal government's representative," Kamal Shrafi stated.

Westerwelle said his decision to not meet with Hamas stemmed from the Gaza leadership's refusal to renounce violence and recognize Israel.
