After all the Western bleating about Fatah not talking to Hamas, it appears that the Palestinians realise that only unity will gain them freedom:
High-ranking Hamas sources revealed to Ma’an on Friday that contact and dialogue have been established between Hamas dignitaries and Fatah representatives, in addition to the president’s office alongside the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine PFLP and the Palestinian People’s Party PPP, in order to set the basis of bringing to an end the state of division in the Palestinian arena.
The same source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, stated that intense consultations were being conducted between figures from Hamas, Fatah, the PPP, the PFLP and the Palestinian National Initiative.
It is the only common-sense approach. A united front against Israel is essential, as the Jewish state can be relied upon to continue to divide and conquer the occupied territories.
