US tells moderates to stay out of Hamas cabinet

FT.com / Middle East & Africa / Arab-Israel conflict - US tells moderates to stay out of Hamas cabinet: "US officials are exerting pressure on moderate Palestinian politicians not to serve in a Hamas-led government and have warned that Washington would sever existing contacts with them if they did.
According to Palestinians familiar with Hamas's current efforts to put together a national unity government following its election victory in January, Washington has targeted a number of independents the Islamist movement was considering for cabinet posts."
