Dr. Ismail Radwan, one of Hamas's political leaders, has said that the statement by French Senator Philip Marini that called for ending the political boycott of Hamas was an indication that Hamas could not be sidestepped.

He told the PIC on Saturday that Marini's statement underlined that the policy of isolating, besieging and marginalizing Hamas was not of any use.

Radwan asked the European Union (EU) to get rid of its "oppressive conditions (for dealing with Hamas) and to deal with the de facto situation that was chosen and elected by the Palestinian people".

All international parties are called upon to deal with Hamas if they want to deal with the Palestine cause, the Hamas leader said, describing his Movement as the "real gate" of the Palestinian question.

Marini had told the Jazeera.net website that Hamas was representing a de facto authority in the Gaza Strip and dealing with the Movement was essential for those who wish to contribute to inter-Palestinian reconciliation, which in turn is a pre-condition for resumption of any serious settlement process between Israel and the Palestinians.

He criticized the EU boycott of Hamas, which he described as a major Palestinian faction, adding that Hamas could not be isolated forever.

The Senator noted that Paris always condemned the Israeli settlement activity in the West Bank and was still refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
