Viewing cable 06REYKJAVIK88, ICELAND WILL NOT HOST HAMAS

If you are new to these pages, please read an introduction on the structure of a cable as well as how to discuss them with others. See also the FAQs

Understanding cables
Every cable message consists of three parts:
  • The top box shows each cables unique reference number, when and by whom it originally was sent, and what its initial classification was.
  • The middle box contains the header information that is associated with the cable. It includes information about the receiver(s) as well as a general subject.
  • The bottom box presents the body of the cable. The opening can contain a more specific subject, references to other cables (browse by origin to find them) or additional comment. This is followed by the main contents of the cable: a summary, a collection of specific topics and a comment section.
To understand the justification used for the classification of each cable, please use this WikiSource article as reference.

Discussing cables
If you find meaningful or important information in a cable, please link directly to its unique reference number.

SUBJECT:  ICELAND WILL NOT HOST HAMAS 
 
REF:  (A) STATE 37552, (B) REYKJAVIK 50 
 
Post discussed ref A points with Icelandic MFA Head of 
International Institutions Division Nikulas Hannigan March 
ΒΆ16.  Hannigan took note of U.S concerns about a Hamas 
government.  He assured us that Iceland has no plans to 
receive any member of Hamas.  Referring again to Arab 
revulsion at the Mohammed cartoons (ref B), Hannigan quipped 
that he did not believe Hamas planned any near-term visits 
to countries with crosses on their flags.  (Note:  An off- 
center cross is the chief feature of all Nordic flags.  End 
note.)
