ABC + Reuters = Sympathy for Hamas

ABC News Online - either wilfully or blindly transcribing off the Reuters feed - dropped a clanger in the last sentence of this article in their Middle East Conflict section:

Unity talks broke down partly over Hamas's rejection of Western demands to recognise Israel.
How unfair of the West to demand Hamas recognise Israel, eh?

It does raise two interesting questions:

1. Why are none of the remaining 190+ countries in the world on the "demand to be recognised" list?

2. If it is only the West that demands Hamas recognise Israel, then how many other countries are indifferent? How many oppose demands to recognise Israel?
