leave out from `House' to end and add `believes that a clear distinction must be drawn between moderate Palestinians such as those in the West Bank who are seeking a peaceful two state solution and terrorist groups in Gaza such as Hamas; notes that Ismail Haniyeh, the head of Hamas in the Gaza strip, recently said to reporters, of Osama Bin Laden, that `We condemn the assassination and the killing of an Arab holy warrior'; strongly welcomes the recent confirmation by the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office that the Government will not change its position on Hamas and that the Quartet Principles will `remain the benchmark to which Hamas should move towards - that is, a rejection of violence, a recognition of the state of Israel and an acceptance of previous agreements'; and therefore believes that only those areas of Palestine which accept the Quartet Principle, and renounce terrorism, should be considered for statehood.'.

This is a ammendment to 2135.
