Hamas on Tuesday called on Saudi Arabia and other nations not to attend the upcoming US-sponsored Mideast peace conference, the first time it has appealed directly to Arab states to stay away. The group also warned Arab countries against offering concessions to Israel. Hamas has spoken out consistently against the conference, called by US President George W. Bush to promote peace between Israel and the Palestinians. Hamas has said any decisions made there would not be binding. Hamas overran Gaza in June. Moderate Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas dismissed the Hamas-led government after the takeover, naming a new Cabinet that runs the West Bank.
