Did you know that Israel has 'colonies'?
Tel Aviv stand on colonies unite Fatah and Hamas
Ramallah: The lack of an extension on a moratorium on colony construction by Israel has helped improve the relationship between Fatah and Hamas, given that the Palestinian National Authority is now looking for alternatives to the peace talks to move forward.
One option is to unite Palestinian political views in opposition to the Israeli government, to give it a stronger position in any future negotiations.
And reconciliation efforts between Hamas and Fatah look likely to continue in spite of the ongoing uncertainty about the peace process. This was made clear in statements released by Hamas earlier this week.
Peace partners? What a joke.
