      Report: Hamas Met Secretly with EU Officials


      Senior officials of Hamas met secretly with officials from four European Union countries in an effort to get the group off the EU's list of terror organizations, according to a Friday-morning report by the Ma'ariv daily.

      Israeli sources expressed outrage at the meetings, claiming they are in contradiction to the EU principle of not meeting with Hamas until it accepts three principles set down by the Quartet of Middle East peace-broker nations: recognition of Israel, abandonment of terror, and recognition of existing agreements between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
