Sen. Lugar: Hamas Is in the Gunsights

Sunday, 15 June 2003 12:00 AM

If it comes to that, "it is possible that there will be an American participation," Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., told "Fox News Sunday."

While emphasizing such a decision would be "down the trail," Lugar warned Hamas "is right in the gunsights."

Lugar said an international force could also be used to keep the Israelis and Palestinians apart.

However, in emphasizing this was all speculation, Lugar said he did not want to "race ahead of a lot of talks that must take place."

Sen. Carl Levin, D-MI., told CBS's "Face the Nation" it is premature to talk about sending in outside forces.

Levin said it is imperative the U.S. convince the Palestinian Authority to directly deal with Hamas.

"That should be our major focus," he said.
