The international community should open their eyes and see that the policy of boycott and isolation is not fruitful or productive. Hamas is now a major player in this region. I don't say it's an angel. We made some mistakes. But Hamas has to be part of the peace process. We've made many positive changes in the past five years. We agreed [in principal] to become part of the PLO. We participated in elections. We talk about a cease-fire. But the international community doesn't look at that.
No one in Hamas will accept the quartet conditions. There is nothing to convince us that this track is correct. Look at what happened to Abbas [who accepts the conditions]. For 21 years he's said he's a man of peace and against violence. He did everything Israel asked. He even makes security coordination with Israel [in the West Bank]. What did he get? More settlements. Israel ignores him. He's very angry.
