The new Palestinian government announced today incorporates Hamas, giving the militant group far greater sway in a territory that comes within 11 miles of Tel Aviv.

Perhaps holding power will make them more accountable.

Technocrats not formally affiliated with either party? I'll have to think about that one for a while. They might not be as loyal to Hamas as is assumed. On the other hand, should peace actually become a possibility, that unity-government will implode anyways.

Who knows what it will all mean? Infighting, lies, handwringing, a few killings...and so it goes. Good luck.

" Palestinian Unity." Now there's an oxymoron.
Spot on Debra.

I don't think it will be before long when they will end up fighting each other all over again. It does not bode well for peace in the region.

of course it won't. hamas ideals will spread thru out the west bank and infect a whole new and younger generation of palestinians.

Why would Israel be in favor of this? The word Hamas will always send up a red flag.

"Hamas will always send up a red flag."... Just another brainwashed American 'patriot'?

Seeing red flag when it is there does not make one a "r brainwashed American 'patriot'", David.

Not seeing the red flag when it is there does make one a deranged, or hallucinating, individual.

The red flag is flying in Israel Bob... There are none so blind as those who refuse to see the truth.
