Abu Obaida, spokesman for Hamas's armed wing, said Sunday that Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salaam Fayad's meetings with Shin Bet head Yuval Diskin and Defense Minister Ehud Barak were "a betrayal of the Palestinian people and their armed struggle," Israel Radio reported. According to Obaida, there was no comparison between these meetings and the meetings between envoy Ofer Dekel and the Hamas prisoners in the Hadarim prison. "The purpose of these meetings was honorable: the release of prisoners," he said.
