In Britain: Creeping Hamas recognition by creeps

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2009/04/in-britain-creeping-hamas-recognition.html

How appropriate that Hamas leader Khaled Meshal will address British MPs in honor of Holocaust day. No doubt Clare Short has invited him to expound his views on the solution to the Jewish problem. The issue regarding Hamas is not just that it is a terror organization, but that it is an organization that openly preaches genocide in contravention of international conventions. Perhaps there is no stopping an idea whose time has come - as events proved in the 1930s, and as they are proving once again.
 
The news:
 
Hamas political bureau chief Khaled Meshal was to deliver an unprecedented videoconference address to a closed meeting of British MPs on Tuesday. The Foreign Ministry is fuming over the event, which goes ahead despite pressure on senior British parliamentarians.
 
The event was arranged by MP Clare Short, who resigned from the Labor Party in 2006, several years after quitting the government over the war in Iraq. Short recently led a delegation of British MPs to meet with Meshal in Damascus.
 
Short extended personal invitations about a week ago to dozens of MPs to attend the videoconference, to be broadcast to a meeting room in the MPs' office building. A large number of MPs are expected to attend.
 
The Israeli Embassy in London tried unsuccessfully to get pro-Israel MPs to exert pressure to cancel the event.
 
Israeli Ambassador Ron Prosor said Monday: "If Khaled Meshal would ask to enter the U.K., he would be denied, because the British government knows very well that Hamas is a terror organization. It is therefore a very serious matter when the British Parliament gets around this obstacle and opens its doors to a terror leader by means of a videoconference."
 
In recent months, particularly after Operation Cast Lead, several MPs have met with Meshal in Damascus and with Ismail Haniyeh in Gaza.
 
The British government does not meet officially with Hamas, as it is on the European Union's list of terror groups.
 
U.K.-Israeli relations have been overshadowed recently by closer relations by British politicians and Hamas.
