"Paus" i fredsförhandlingarna

Efter att Abbas valt att samarbeta med Hamas (åtminstone i teorin) medger nu även USA att det behövs en paus i "fredsförhandlingarna". Ledare i regionen har visat sig vara ovilliga att göra svåra beslut, säger president Obama.
Israels regering har enhälligt beslutat att i nuvarande situation inte fortsätta förhandlingarna men Netanyahu håller dörren öppen för förhandlingar i framtiden.

Netanyahu keeps door open to future negotiations after talks suspended due to Hamas-Fatah pact (Jerusalem Post)
" Just two hours after Israel suspended diplomatic talks with the Palestinians over Wednesday's Hamas-Fatah reconciliation pact, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said he will "be there in the future if we have a partner that is committed to peace."

PA Chairman Abbas says no disagreement between Fatah and Hamas  (PMW)
 "The agreement signed yesterday between Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah and the terrorist organization Hamas to form a unity government should not have surprised international observers. For years Mahmoud Abbas has been seeking and demanding unity between Fatah and Hamas, despite international recognition of Hamas as a terror organization. In 2009, Palestinian Media Watch documented Abbas' assertion that there is nothing to prevent unity because Hamas and Fatah agree on all important issues:

"There is no disagreement between us [Fatah and Hamas]: About belief? None! About policy? None! About resistance? None! So what do you [Hamas] disagree about? Why are you not signing the [reconciliation] agreement?"
