What will change now that Hamas and Fatah have made a deal?

Asked by JLeslie (47629 points ) December 22nd, 2011

I heard this morning that Hamas and Fatah have reconciled. Is this good for the Palestinian people? What will change for the Palestinians? How do you think it will affect their relationship with Israel?

Here’s one article.

There are a bunch. I just don’t know all the background, so I thought some jellies would have interesting insight.

Nothing. They will find that they are incompatible within 6 months. At that point they will split again.

If anything, Hamas will force Fatah (well, the PA) to break any agreements or understandings with Israel. THere will be negotiations at all.

In summary, this is going to change nothing in the long term, although in the short term they may seem to be getting along.

I hope it lasts but there are too many ‘people’ there that will never accept harmony they believe that ‘God’ has chosen them to rule all land from the Mediterranean to the Euphraties river.

Do you want it to last @mattbrowne ?
What of Zionism?

@Boogabooga1 – Ideally both Fatah and Hamas disappear over time while the Palestinian people found new modern parties. I also wish that the Israeli right-wing parties get replaced by moderate conservative parties.
