Hamas said Saturday that it was disappointed that it would not attend this week's Arab summit here in the Sudanese capital where it had hoped to explain its position to the Arab people. "We had hoped to attend the summit to be able to support our people in light of the threats against them and our upcoming governement," Moushir al-Masri, Hamas spokesman in the Gaza Strip told The Associated Press by telephone. al-Masri, who was elected to the Palestinian parliament in the group's landslide victory in January, blamed the group's absence on "Palestinian parties," alluding to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization. He argued that "obstacles" had been put in the way of the recognition of the Hamas-led government, calling such actions "immoral."
