The leader of the 'Palestinian state'?

Hamas 'Foreign Minister' Mahmoud Zahar warns that things could get violent if 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen comes to Gaza.
This is from the first link. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has no intentions of visiting the Gaza Strip in the near future, Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar told London-based al-Quds al-Arabi, hinting that there may be threats on Abbas's life should he choose to do so.

Zahar stressed that Hamas was not interested in jeopardizing the internal security situation in the Gaza Strip should Abbas decide to visit and cause internal Fatah violence to occur as a result of "unsettled accounts."

According to al-Quds al-Arabi, Zahar may have been referring to the ongoing conflict between the Palestinian Authority president and ex-Fatah official and strident Abbas critic Muhammad Dahlan.
Or maybe Hamas itself would like Abu Mazen dead.
Zahar also dismissed any attempts by Abbas to rekindle the stalled reconciliation process between Hamas and Fatah's leadership as futile, saying of the failed process: "the [reconciliation] agreement was completed [in Cairo], but it's implementation is defunct."

Zahar dismissed any sort of talks that have occurred between officials in Fatah and Hamas of being concerned simply with "peripheral matters."
But just give them a 'state' and they'll figure out later what territory it 'controls.' You mean that's not what the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States says? Oh well....
