Senior Hamas leader in Mahmoud Zahar appeared in public on Saturday for the first time since Israel launched Operation Cast Lead six weeks ago. Zahar led a Hamas delegation to a new round of cease-fire talks in Egypt, crossing the border from Gaza into Egypt together with three other Hamas officials, en route to Cairo.
