Hamas declines to recognize Israel

Hamas has rejected a US call to recognize Israel in exchange for Washington's recognition of the movement as a legitimate government.

"This is an unacceptable interference in the Palestinian affair," said Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan on Saturday. "Hamas will stay on its stance not to recognize Israel or the Quartet's conditions."

Radwan's remarks came after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday that Hamas must accept the Mideast Quartet conditions for a unified Palestinian ruling system.

The Quartet comprises of the United States, the European Union, the United Nations and Russia.

Hamas took power in a democratic election in 2006; at that time, however, the West announced that it would not deal with the movement until it recognized Israel and denounced "violence".
