The article informs that militant Islamic party Hamas' victory in Palestinian legislative elections has made the U.S. and Israel rethink their policy on the Arab-Isareli peace process. Hamas is identified as a terrorist group by the U.S. U.S. President George W. Bush said the vote will not change the American position on Hamas. Israel's acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said he would not negotiate with a Palestinian government that has a terrorist organization calling for Israel's destruction.
