(NEWS) Mashaal: Hamas Willing To Accept Peace Deal With Israel

"Hamas Politburo Chief tells Newsweek his organization will abide peace agreement with Israel if it has Palestinian consensus; urges US to hear Hamas directly.

Hamas Politburo Chief Khaled Mashaal says his group is willing to accept any peace agreement achieved between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, as long as it enjoys a Palestinian consensus, Ynet learned Wednesday.

In an interview with Newsweek Magazine, Mashaal predicted that the inception of a Palestinian state was not something that could happen in the foreseeable future, and urged Washington to 'hear from us directly.' Hamas, he said, already talks to Washington via unofficial channels, including former president Jimmy Carter."
