Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat told Israel's Channel 2 TV that once Hamas takes a political role in elections and the parliament, it amounts to the first step toward giving up its weapons. "The Palestinian election law is clear ... no one can use guns and no one can incite verbally and no one can use mosques," Erekat said, "No one can get their political goals through the means of force. So the election law provides that those persons and those parties and those factions who run for elections must understand that only through peaceful means can they make changes."
