British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw urged Hamas on Thursday to renounce violence and recognize Israel following its success in the Palestinian legislative elections. "Hamas has to understand that with democracy goes renunciation of violence," Straw said on a visit to the Turkish capital. "It is up to Hamas to choose. We will have to wait and see, the international community will want Hamas to make a proper rejection of violence and to acknowledge that Israel exists," Straw said.
