Potentially, an important development in Palestine

Now the interesting test will come in Washington, which, it must be remembered, urged the elections that brought Hamas to power notwithstanding objections from both Abu Mazen and the Israelis.
The Daily Star - Politics - Abbas, Haniyya agree to join forces: "Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas reached a deal with Prime Minister Ismail Haniyya of Hamas on Monday to form a unity government. But Hamas said it would never recognize Israel, raising questions over whether a unity coalition would satisfy Western demands for lifting sanctions. 'We have finalized the elements of the political agenda of the national unity government ... Hopefully, in the coming few days we will begin forming the government of national unity,' Abbas said on Palestine TV with Haniyya sitting next to him."
