Italian parliament speaker Fausto Bertinotti urged Palestinian lawmakers Wednesday to recognize Israel and accept negotiations as the only means to establish their own state. Bertinotti, the first Western guest to address the Hamas-dominated PA parliament also urged a resumption of foreign aid. Aid was cut off in 2006, when Hamas took power, because the US, EU and Israel list Hamas as a terror group. Bertinotti called for resuming funding to the cash-strapped Palestinian government. "If the national unity government is not allowed to work and start governing, all what we can expect is collapse," Bertinotti told the lawmakers through a translator.
