Palestinian parliament speaker Aziz Dweik waves after a press conference outside the Palestinian legislative council in Ramallah on June 23, 2009 following his release after nearly three years in Israeli prison. Dweik, 60, was elected speaker in February 2006, a month after the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) swept Palestinian parliamentary elections and he was arrested by Israeli security forces at his Ramallah home in August 2006 in a West Bank crackdown on Hamas.APAIMAGES PHOTO /Issam rimawi
