Hamas: We won't oppose Obama visit to the Gaza Strip

While Hamas would not negotiate with Israel, it does not oppose a visit by US President Barack Obama to the Gaza Strip, a Hamas official told Palestinian news agency Ma'an on Wednesday.

"We are used to America viewing our cause from one angle," Aziz Dweik, the speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, said, but added he hopes 'the US attitude to reality will change."

Dweik also urged Obama not to visit Jerusalem, as to not "legitimize the Judaization of Jerusalem."

Obama is scheduled to arrive to the region for a visit in Israel and the West Bank on March 20.
