Fatah - Hamas talks off for now

For now, at least, there are no talks between Fatah and Hamas.
Palestinian talks once again reach a deadlock. Hamas said Tuesday planned reconciliation talks with the Fatah have been postponed due to a spat over the venue. "Fatah has asked to be excused from taking part in the meeting which had been due to take place in Damascus tomorrow (Wednesday)," said a Hamas statement released in the Syrian capital. "Contacts will be made between the two sides to arrange a new date," AFP cited the statement.

A Fatah source in the West Bank said that the faction had asked that the talks be held "anywhere but Damascus" but that Hamas had refused.

Press reports said that the Fatah request followed a row between Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad at an Arab summit in Libya earlier this month over policy towards peace talks with Israel.

Faster, faster, faster, now heh.

Its just a coincidence this happened when Dhimmi Carter and the Elders were in Damascus!

If the Muslim brahs can't live in peace with each other, how does the world expect them to live in peace with the dhimmi Jews?

That's the elephant in the room every one overlooks for the sake of a "peace process" that will go nowhere in the future.
