Hamas to Abbas: Reject US money

Palestinian legislator and Hamas supporter Mushir al-Musri called upon Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Friday to refuse to receive funds from the USA. The accusation follows a report that the Bush Administration intends to transfer $86.4 million to the security branches of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. Al-Masri accused Washington of assisting the 'revolution' against the Hamas government. "We demand that Chairman Abbas reject this American policy which only increases the rift in the Palestinian nation," al-Masri said.
