Egyptian Intelligence Chief Omar Suleiman met with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas Wednaesday evening. Abbas told Suleiman that east Jerusalem Arabs must be allowed to vote for the upcoming Palestinian parliamentary elections, reiterating calls from Palestinian Information Minister Nabil Shaath, who said that barring the vote in Jerusalem would be grounds for calling off the ballot. Two senior Israeli government officials said Wednesday that Israel would not let Palestinians vote in Jerusalem because it objects to Hamas' participation in the race. Hamas, which is committed to Israel's destruction, is running for the first time in parliamentary elections, and poses a strong challenge to Abbas, a moderate.
