Great news: Hamas and Fatah terror groups reach 'reconciliation' agreement

The two smiling hyenas reached agreement on a 'reconciliation' between their respective terror organizations during a meeting on Wednesday in Cairo.
“The meeting decided to fully implement the reconciliation agreement and the Doha declaration,” Izzat al-Rishq, an aide to Meshaal told the Associated Press.

“It puts an end to the debate and discussions over Hamas’ position concerning the Doha agreement and puts an end to what seemed to be disagreement within Hamas.”

A reconciliation deal has previously been a struggle to implement as the long-time rivals have run separate governments since 2007 - Abbas in the West Bank and the Islamic militant group, Hamas, in Gaza.

Hamas leaders in Gaza had previously objected to relinquishing power to Abbas under the terms of a unity deal.

But earlier on Wednesday, members of Hamas’ leadership said the deal must be implemented in a “thorough and honest” way.

“We stress the need for thorough and honest implementation of the reconciliation agreements of Cairo and Doha to end the division and unify the national front,” they said in a statement after meeting.
No word yet on when the composition of the 'government' will be announced.

The Obama administration celebrated the looming end of the 'peace process' by protesting the construction of Israeli homes and the legalization of 'outposts' in Judea and Samaria.
The United States joined the Palestinian Authority and UN on Wednesday, in condemning Israeli plans to authorize the Shvut Rachel outpost and 180 homes in the Shiloh settlement, according to an AFP report. Both the Shvut Rachel outpost and the Shiloh settlement are located in the Binyamin region of the West Bank.

According to AFP, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said he "was not familiar" with the construction plans approved Wednesday, but stated the the US government opposes such moves because they do not help the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

"We want to see clearly a comprehensive settlement that delineates borders and resolves many of these issues," Toner reportedly said.
What could go wrong?
