Immediately after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech on Sunday in which he will present the new government's diplomatic plan, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal will follow suit and deliver his own special policy address, Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported on Tuesday. According to the London-based newspaper, the Damascus-based leader will present a new strategy for the movement in his speech. A source close to Hamas told the paper that the group was considering a number of options and political alternatives - some of which would be presented by Mashaal - in the wake of the US administration's new Middle East peace push. The source added that following Mashaal's address, which he said would outline Hamas's strategy toward negotiations with Israel and a peace agreement, Egypt was expected to issue an official invitation to Palestinian factions for talks. On Monday, another Damascus-based Hamas leader urged US President Barack Obama to talk directly with the group, saying it was the representative of the Palestinian people and that the American president's drive for Mideast peace was impossible without them. Hamas's deputy political leader, Moussa Abu Marzouk, also told The Associated Press that the group would not renounce violence - a key US demand before Washington will agree to deal with the group.
