Bush urges Hamas to recognize Israel, work for peace
font size    

U.S. President George W. Bush on Tuesday reiterated his call for the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) to recognize Israel, disarm and work for peace.

"The Palestinian people have voted in elections -- now the leaders of Hamas must recognize Israel, disarm, reject terrorism, and work for lasting peace," Bush said in his annual State of the Union address.

Hamas defeated the ruling Fatah party in parliamentary elections last week by winning 76 seats in the 132-member Palestinian Legislative Council and was asked by Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas to form government.
