Critical Meeting Between Fatah and Hamas Tomorrow re: Unification Government

June 14, 2011

According to previous reports, Hamas has rejected Fatah‘s nomination of Salam Fayyad as the Prime Minister of the unified government.  His selection would almost certainly be viewed favorably by both Israel and the United States.  Whether Hamas can be convinced otherwise may be decided tomorrow.

According to the Palestinian News Network:

Dr Mahmoud al Zahar, member of the political office of Hamas, told newspapers on Monday that the Hamas-Fatah meeting in Cairo on Tuesday will tackle all unsolved issues.

It will be interesting to hear the results.

    As of today, 19 June, it was announced that the meeting that was supposed to iron out the differences regarding who would be the next Palestinians PM was indefinitely postponed.
    Don’t worry, although HAMAS and the Palestinian Authority can’t work together, but Abbas will stick his neck out and make the concessions necessary to reach a peace agreement with Israel, even though these will brand him forever a traitor to the Arab world (e.g. by giving up the Right or Return of the refugees).
    Yes, indeed, peace is at hand.

      Well, based upon the reaction of Israel and the US, perhaps the inability of Fatah and Hamas to work out their differences might actually turn out to be a good thing. We’ll just have to wait to see how this plays out.
