While Sam Segev is correct in stating in the Winnipeg Free Press yesterday that U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton ?did not oppose? the formation of a ?Palestinian national unity government, with Hamas participation,? he failed to mention that Ms. Clinton and the U.S. administration hold that the Quartet?s conditions for Hamas? participation in this government must be met. Namely, Hamas must renounce terrorism, recognize Israel, and must abide by previous Israeli-Palestinian agreements.
