Hamas And Fatah Reached a Preliminary Agreement For a Unity Government

This could get interesting; with interesting meaning an unfortunate increase in the probability of major terrorist-military action.

"The rival Palestinian Hamas and Fatah groups reached a preliminary agreement to end their almost four-year divide, form a unity government and hold elections.

Egypt, which acted as mediator during the secret talks, will host a meeting of Palestinian factions next week for a formal signing ceremony, Fatah negotiator Azzam al-Ahmad said.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said a unity agreement would put an end to negotiations and said the Palestinian Authority “must choose between peace with Israel and peace with Hamas.” President Shimon Peres said it would prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state and “sabotage any chance for peace.”

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said the agreement “crosses a red line” and suggested the government withhold tax revenue it transfers to the Palestinian Authority and rescind travel permits for its officials. A clause providing for the release of Hamas prisoners from Palestinian jails “will flood the West Bank with armed terrorists,” Liberman told Army Radio today. “The army will have to act accordingly.”

  1. Both sides (Israel and Palestinian) countries should have peace talks then this issue will be solved otherwise this issue will continue for a long time and neighbouring countries will suffer along with these countries and also this conflict will be one of the reason for world war so we have to solve this problem immediately United Nations should negotiate with these countries.
