Fatah turns down reconciliation proposal from Hamas

Haaretz is reporting that the 'good terrorists' of Fatah have turned down a reconciliation proposal from the 'bad terrorists' of Hamas. Unfortunately, the only reason it seems that the offer was turned down was because Hamas wanted to snub Egypt by signing it in Syria.
Abbas did not give further details, but Arab diplomatic sources said Hamas had planned for the agreement to be signed in Damascus.

The request by Hamas is an effort to undermine the status of Egypt, with whom Hamas has been sparring, while crediting Syria and indirectly Iran, both rivals of the Egyptians.


Another proposal, which was thought to be another attempt by Hamas to draw out the process, was that Abbas would meet with Hamas politburo chief Khaled Meshal in Damascus, where they would sign the Egyptian deal.

After the signing, a reconciliation ceremony would then take place in Cairo.

Under the Egyptian proposal, a supervisory committee under Abbas would manage the Gaza Strip and its reconstruction in parallel with a Hamas government, until presidential and parliamentary elections are held on June 28.

However, the friction between Fatah and Hamas continues.
The friction should only continue.

They don't really like or trust each other and both want to rule. No Palestinian reconciliation agreement is going to get anywhere any time soon.
