"Normalize relations with Hamas," British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw urged Thursday. "Hamas is now heading a government, and we want to maintain normal relations with them as we did with the previous government," Straw said during his visit to Riddyah, Saudi Arabia. Straw added that he would demand in any case that Hamas meet the demands of the international community, but softened his stance by saying that he would be satisfied with the group accepting the existence of the Jewish state, and would not insist that Hamas recognize Israel formally.
