Via Majikthise: Hamas and Fatah are about to form a coalition government, based on an indirect recognition of Israel.
The current Hamas-led Palestinian government will be dissolved within 48 hours and a new prime minister will be appointed, Nabil Abu Rdeinah, a spokesman for Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, said Monday. The new government is expected to be a unity government comprised of Hamas and Fatah.
“We are very, very close to the establishment of a unity government,” said an advisor to Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh on Monday.
The progress in talks between Hamas and Fatah came after Haniyeh agreed to indirect recognition of Israel by accepting a 2002 Arab peace initiative as part of the platform for a unity government with Fatah, Hamas representatives indicated Monday.
The head of the Hamas parliamentary faction, Salah El-Bardaweil, said that the group’s political stance is based on the “prisoners document,” as well as the 2002 Arab League peace initiative.
Obviously, they just pretend to recognize Israel; they still want every Jew in the world to die and everyone else to convert to Islam. The Likud says so, so it must be true.
