Hamas rejected a call by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Islamic group to recognize the state of Israel, Army Radio reported on Saturday afternoon. Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan reportedly said that the group will not recognize Israel nor meet the condition set by the Quartet, and noted that Clinton's request was unacceptable to the Palestinians. On Friday, Clinton was quoted as saying that the Egyptian-brokered efforts to bring about reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah will only work if the group recognizes Israel.
