Hamas supporters protest against Annapolis parley

Hamas protests Annapolis peace parley Thousands of Hamas supporters converged on the deserted Gaza City house of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday, warning of violence if he makes concessions to Israel in an upcoming US-sponsored peace conference. The moderate Abbas will be leading the talks at the end of the month in Annapolis, Maryland. Abbas rules in the West Bank after he kicked Hamas out of the government and installed his own administration following the group's seizure of control in the Gaza Strip in June. Hamas is not invited to the meeting.
