US President George W. Bush said Thursday he would not negotiate with Hamas until the terror group renounces its desire to destroy Israel. In an interview to the Wall street Journal Bush said that a political party must support peace, and must act peacefully. A State Department official said Wednesday that Hamas was a terror organization and that whoever denies Israel's right to exist cannot participate in a Palestinian government.
