Foreign Secretary David Miliband has expressed concern over the worsening situation in Jerusalem and calls from Hamas to boycott Palestinian elections. In a telephone conversation with Prime Minister Salaam Fayad on Thursday evening, the Foreign Minister reiterated the importance of all sides working together to calm tensions. Miliband also condemned Hamas's statement on Wednesday which called for Palestinians to boycott the January elections in Gaza and threatening violence against those who did not. "This betrays the Palestinians in Gaza who have suffered so much in the past year," he told Fayad. He also expressed concern about evictions of Palestinian families in east Jerusalem and assured Fayad that he would continue to press Israel to desist from "such provocative and illegal actions."
