Hamas and Fatah Agree to Unity Government in Historic Deal

GAZA CITY (Ma'an)
-- PLO and Hamas representatives announced an
historic unity deal on Wednesday to bring to an end
to more than seven years of political division
between the main Palestinian political parties.



Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh announced the end
of years of Palestinian political division in a
press conference in Gaza City, saying that the Hamas
and PLO delegations had worked as "one team"
throughout the reconciliation dialogue and had
stressed the necessity of achieving results in this
round of dialogue.



The joint PLO-Hamas statement given at the
conference also authorized the Palestinian Authority
president to set a date for new elections, and
emphasized the commitment of both sides to the
reconciliation principles that had been agreed upon
in the Cairo Agreement and the Doha Declaration.



They also emphasized the need to reactivate the
Palestinian Legislative Council.



Fatah leader Azzam al-Ahmad said that neither side
will accept the resumption of negotiations with
Israel without clear guidelines, and that
negotiations had stalled as a result of "Israel
intransigence" and "American bias."

Some thirteen years after the event, the shadow of
the

9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center
in Manhattan and the Pentagon still darkens our
world. The legacy of that terrible day has impacted
not only our foreign policy, bequeathing to a new
generation an apparently
