Hamas, anti-Zionist Jewish leaders meet

Palestinian Cabinet minister Atef Adwan and a controversial Austrian rabbi pledged Friday to work to build ties between Hamas and anti-Zionist Jews. Adwan, Hamas' refugee minister, and orthodox rabbi Moishe Arye Friedman told The Associated Press their meeting in the Swedish capital heralded a "joint coalition" between their groups. Adwan also said the two hoped their meeting would lead to plans for humanitarian aid to flow from Friedman's congregation in Vienna to the West Bank.
