Fatah-Hamas Unity Government Collapsing

Tuesday, May 12, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- The fluid and rapidly changing dynamics of politics in the Middle East, where allegiances can shift dramatically, is impacting Palestinian politics and the biggest loser appears to be the Fatah-affiliated Palestinian Authority (PA) which is losing support amongst its followers and being sidelined by Hamas, Deutsche Welle reported.

Despite promising to never negotiate with "terrorists," Israel appears to have sidelined the PA and is currently holding secret talks with Hamas to reach an understanding on a long term "quiet," which would include Israel significantly easing its blockade on Gaza. Numerous intermediaries are involved in the talks, including officials from the United Nations, Europe and Qatar.

Israel's fears of another outbreak of fighting follows its recent shelling of northern Gaza in retaliation for a rocket fired into Israel from Gaza, a scenario which preceded previous wars between Hamas and Israel. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.dw.de/fatah-hamas-unity-in-tatters/a-18442870 " type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
