Israel denies PLO official entry to Gaza via Erez

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinian lawmaker Mustafa Barghouti has been denied a permit to the Gaza Strip via the Erez crossing, a PLO official said Monday.

PLO Executive Committee member Jamil Shehada told Ma'an that Israel rejected Barghouti's application for a permit to enter Gaza, where he intends to travel as a member of a delegation to discuss national reconciliation.

Shehada said the delegation would travel to Gaza via Egypt if necessary.

A member of the PLO delegation told Ma'an Sunday that the visit to Gaza is part of an effort to implement reconciliation agreements reached with Hamas in 2012.

The delegation consists of Fatah Central Committee member Azzam al-Ahmad, Secretary-General of the Palestinian People's Party Bassam al-Salhi, businessman Munib al-Masri, Barghouthi, and Shehada.

The division between Fatah and Hamas began in 2006, when Hamas won Palestinian legislative elections.

In the following year, clashes erupted between Fatah and Hamas, leaving Hamas in control of the Strip and Fatah in control of parts of the occupied West Bank.

The groups have made failed attempts at national reconciliation for years, most recently in 2012, when they signed two agreements -- one in Cairo and a subsequent one in Doha -- which have as of yet been entirely unimplemented.

Israel don't want Palestinians to unify. It's not in her interest, therefore these blockades to prevent reconcilliation.

the correct move would be to arrest those members of delegation and put them in jail together with the rest of the palestinian terrorists. They will have opportunity to reconcile while in jail.

They are invited to get into Gaza though our brother Egypt. Why to be dependent on Jews?

* ISRAEL should NOT deny PLO officials entry to Gaza via Erez, but instead it
* SHOULD DENY PLO OFFICIALS ENTRY INTO ISRAEL, on the way back, and not just from Gaza, but instead FROM THE WHOLE WORLD.

1., Sander, in reality, it isn't in the Palestinians best interests for the PLO and Hamas to unify, either.
