Bringing Hamas in from the cold

Here’s hoping that this is true:

Dr. Ahmad Yousef, a political adviser to the prime minister of the Hamas-led government, Ismail Haniyah, revealed Tuesday… that prior to the US… presidential elections, a secret meeting was held between senior officials from the… Palestinian movement… and President-elect Barack Obama’s advisers in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas must be involved in any peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.
