Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said Saturday that calls by former European officials to end the western boycott of Hamas shows that Europe has realized its mistake in cutting Hamas out of the regional arena.

Abu Zuhri called on the EU to respond to the calls and honor the results of Palestinian elections of 2006.

The call was one of many from Europe that have the same inferences, Abu Zuhri said, adding that the move marks the increased isolation of Israel and support of the Palestinians.

Twenty four former European premiers and foreign ministers have called on the US and EU foreign policy chief Katherine Ashton to support the Palestinian unity deal and change foreign policy in the Mideast.

The letter signed by the officials says that ”a lasting peace with Israel is only possible if Hamas is on board”.

Among the undersigners are four EU prime ministers, 11 former EU foreign ministers, and former Israeli foreign minister Shlomo Ben-Ami.
