Pakistani President Gen. &to=http://english.pravda.ru/hotspots/2001/11/27/22107.html' target=_blank>Pervez Musharraf said Friday the world must give Hamas a chance to show if it can transform itself like Israeli Prime Minister &to=http://english.pravda.ru/main/18/90/364/16746_sharon.html' target=_blank>Ariel Sharon into a force for peace.
"Everyone thought he (Sharon) was a military man, a strongman, that he's the one who was destroying peace.

"Let us hope that Hamas also ends up like that."
