Here is more of what Gul said regarding Hamas in yesterday's talk at the Turkish Parliament: "Hamas came to power through an election. They have to get along with Israel. Israel knows this. If Israel had wanted, they could have prevented Hamas from entering the elections in their own country. But they didn't do this. We want to contribute to the peace process between the two countries. This is why we gave the Hamas delegation the message of "leave off weapons, and recognize Israel as legitimate." Whether or not they take this advice is up to them."
