BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Hamas official Ismail Ashqar said Friday that consultations for establishing a national consensus government will be initially confined to Fatah and Hamas, and then presented to the rest of the factions.

Fatah and Hamas are set to meet Sunday in Cairo in order to discuss formation of the new government.

Ashqar presented two conditions for the long-awaited joint government. He said Hamas still does not agree with the original proposal that the cabinet is composed of technocrats, but rather they want political figures from both parties.

The Hamas official also said that Abbas' decision to form the government only has political weight, to be a legal entity it should be approved by the parliament.

The Palestinian Legislative Council has not sat since 2007, when Hamas and Fatah split Palestine into separate governments in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Why is Maan whitewashing the truth? "Hamas and Fatah split Palestine into separate governments in the West Bank and Gaza Strip"???? Why did that happen? Why no mention of the civil war and the hundreds of deaths?

- Abbas to Hamas: We have international legitimacy,
so you must "RECONCILE WITH our position of PRETENDING,
to seek peace with the Zionists", and
- Hamas to Abbas: "We can not even say 2 states, so you must RECONCILE WITH our position of FIGHTING the Zionists, to the death" !!

You mean that both Hamas and Fatah are pretentious! Hamas pretends to fight the occupation and Fatah pretends to have peace with it! That leads us to conclusion that Hamas is what really Fatah is and conversely, according to you. But if the Palestinians voted Fatah into power, you would say those people are not different from Hamas, and if the Palestinians voted Hamas into power you would say those are terrorists. I know How the Israelis think.

How many times are they going to the "conciliation" well before something solid comes out of it. Honestly speaking this has to be at least the 10th time I have read about a NEW meeting to reconcile. It is a joke at this point.
