Meshal: Hamas won't stand in the way of PA-Israel deal
By Barak Ravid and Avi Issacharoff
Hamas political bureau chief Khaled Meshal told a Russian diplomat a few days ago that his group would not stand in the way of a peace deal brokered between Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Israel.
