Report: Hamas might reconsider attitude to Israel

The Palestinian ambassador to Moscow said Thursday that Hamas might reconsider its attitude to Israel in order to advance the interests of the Palestinian people, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported. Hamas "ties the question of recognizing Israel as a state with the necessity to end the occupation of the Palestinian territories," Ambassador Bakir Abdel Munem was quoted as saying. "At the same time, I think that Hamas may revise its stance in the interests of the entire Palestinian people."
