Hamas is hopeful President Obama will open dialogue with the Islamist group in spite of congressional restrictions on such talks, Ahmed Yousef, Hamas' chief political adviser in Gaza, said in an exclusive interview today.

Yousef, speaking from Gaza one day after Obama met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House, made the recorded comments to Mideast journalist and author Aaron Klein

Yousef said he believes Obama intends to "change" American policy toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He called Obama a "smart and decent man."

Klein is available for comment on this issue, as well the major differences in policy between Obama and Netanyahu - especially regarding Iran - that could ultimately lead to a crisis in U.S.- Israel relations.

Klein's just-released blockbuster book is The Late Great State of Israel. In the urgent work, Klein documents the unprecedented, mortal danger that Israel faces.
