KUWAIT,  The Kuwaiti government agreed to pull out from the Arab peace initiative at the request of its parliament following the Israeli brutal attack on the Freedom Flotilla that grouped Kuwaiti citizens and journalists other than relief material.

The Kuwaiti step was in response to the Israeli massacre in lines of solidarity activists on board the ships of the Flotilla.

For its part, Hamas appreciated the Kuwaiti parliament and government's move, describing it as an "advanced step" in retaliation to the Israeli bloodbath in international waters.

Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, told the PIC on Tuesday that the step was a strong response to the Israeli disregard to the Arab Nation and continued crimes against the Palestinian people and those displaying solidarity with them.

The spokesman asked all Arab regimes to adopt a similar step and withdraw support for the Arab peace initiative in light of the continued Israeli crimes.

For his part, Arab League secretary general Amr Mousa said in a terse statement in Doha on Tuesday that Israel should be legally prosecuted for its crimes.

"Israel believes that it is above accountability", he said, adding that Israel should respect the international law and should be prosecuted according to articles of this law.
