"GAZA, (PIC)-- The Hamas Movement has called on all concerned parties to boycott he autumn conference called for by US president George Bush in November in the light of Israeli premier Ehud Olmert's statements.
Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri, one of the Hamas's spokesmen in the Gaza Strip, said in a press release that Olmert's statement that concluding an agreement with the Palestinians was still remote and filled with obstacles meant that the IOA was not ready to give any political price for the Palestinian people.
The IOA would only offer carefully worded, unbinding political statements that are hollow of any concrete content, he elaborated.
The spokesman said that in the light of such political maneuvering on the part of the IOA, Hamas calls on the PA leadership to reconsider its position on participation in that conference because such participation would mean an involvement in the attempted liquidation of the Palestine cause.
Abu Zuhri also asked all concerned Arab countries to boycott he autumn conference and to adopt decisive stands in defense of the Palestine cause in face of liquidation."
