New Palestinian Finance Minister Omar Abdel-Razeq smiles during an interview in the West Bank city of Ramallah March 23, 2006. The 47-year old U.S.-educated Abdel-Razeq was appointed as finance minister earlier this week in the wake of Hamas' victory in Palestinian elections in late January, just weeks after being released from an Israeli jail.
