The violent Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip in June was a mistake, Ghazi Hamad, a former spokesman for the Islamist group's government in the Strip said over the weekend. Israel Radio quoted a letter sent by Hamad to Hamas leaders in which he writes that since the takeover Hamas has been isolated in a small area, instead of deepening its ties with the Arab world and the international community.
