Worthy Christian News » Abbas announces new PM, but unity government with Hamas on hold

(Times of Israel/Worthy News)– Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas chose a prime minister to head a unity government on Thursday but announcement of the lineup was held up over the foreign affairs portfolio, officials said.

Abbas sent a "letter of designation" to Rami Hamdallah, who is currently serving as premier within the West Bank-based government, an official in Ramallah said.

Hamas Prime Minister in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh said that a declaration on the forming of a new government could come in in coming hours or days, Israel Radio reported.

However, a Palestinian source cautioned that the move would only come if a dispute over who would hold the position of foreign minister is resolved.

    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
    Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Romans 1:26-27, 32
