Hamdan welcomes European calls for renouncing policy of isolating Hamas

Osama Hamdan, the representative of the Hamas Movement in Lebanon welcomed the letter written by a number of European diplomats and published Thursday in the British Times newspaper which called for renouncing the failed policy of isolating Hamas and involving it in the peace process.


Hamdan told the Quds Press expressed his belief that such message reflects the awareness of some British politicians about the importance of opening dialog with Hamas and their recognition of the democratic results of the last Palestinian elections which many tried to ignore.


The Hamas leader urged the Europeans to open dialog with Hamas away from any preconditions such as demanding it to recognize the Israeli occupation, saying that the victim should not be asked to recognize its oppressor.
