"Obama: Hamas, Chance For Change," from ANSAmed, November 5 (thanks to Insubria):
(ANSAmed) - GAZA, NOVEMBER 5 - The election of Barack Obama offers the United States a "chance for a change, after his predecessor, Geroge W. Bush destroyed relations with the external world": this was stated by Hamas' al-Aqsa television by an executive from the movement, Ahmed Yussef. Yussef complained that during the electoral campaign, neither Obama nor his rival john McCain dedicated particular attention to the Palestinian issue. We hope, however - he said - that now Obama will understand the suffering of the Palestinian people and that he changes in United States strategy not only in Palestine, but also in Iraq and Afghanistan".
