Hamas dan Fatah berdamai. Israel takut US kecut.

Monday 2 May 2011

Accompanied by senior Hamas delegates in exile, head of the Political Bureau of the Hamas movement in Syria, Khaled Mashal, arrived on Sunday evening in Cairo in preparation to sign the Palestinian unity agreement, with Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas.

The Hamas-affiliated Palestinian Information Center reported that Hamas figures Dr. Sami Abu Marzouq, Sami Khater and Imad Al Alami also accompanied Mashal.

The unity agreement will officially be signed this coming Wednesday. Abbas, Mashal, and leaders of other Palestinian factions will attend the official ceremony.

Hamas political leaders in Gaza will be heading to Cairo Monday to join Mashal and his team in order to hold a meeting with Egyptian Security Chief, lieutenant Mamdouh Muwafi.

Khalil Al Hayya, member of the Hamas political Bureau, confirmed that Mashal will also be holding meeting with Egyptian leaders, and leaders of different Palestinian factions, including a meeting with President Mahmoud Abbas.

Al Hayya added that, directly after unity deal is signed, Hamas and Fatah movements will start extensive talks on security arrangements, elections, the upcoming government and reforming the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).

After reaching the preliminary deal between Fatah and Hamas last week, Egypt started preparations for the signing of the final deal.

Different Palestinian factions and vast segments of the Palestinian society in Palestine and in exile expressed relief after the initial deal was signed.

Israel and the United States are threatening to boycott the Palestinian Authority, and indicated they would halt all sorts of cooperation with it.
( Obvious sangat mereka ni sedang takut. Kene buat derang betul2 takut! dalam hati ni duk berangan dan bercita-cita nak bunuh at least sorang zionist/israeli yang mengancam agama kita ni.. membara. )

Several U.S senators, mainly republicans, called for stopping U.S. and international aid to the Palestinian Authority of Mahmoud Abbas for signing a deal with the Hamas movement, dubbed as a terrorist group.

Pembukaan tembok rafah.


In an interview with Al Jazeera television on Friday, Egypt’s Foreign Minister announced that the interim Egyptian government has decided to re-open the border between Egypt and Gaza, and will begin in the next few days to begin easing the blockade on Gaza.

Israeli authorities imposed a siege on Gaza four years ago, although even prior to the siege many items were forbidden from entering the Gaza Strip, home to 1.4 million Palestinians – many of them refugees and the descendants of refugees forced to leave what is now Israel when Israel was created in 1948.

Hosni Mubarak, who was the ‘President-for-Life’ of Egypt at that time, agreed to help Israeli authorities enforce the blockade by keeping the Rafah border crossing (the only Gaza border crossing outside of Israeli control) closed indefinitely. Mubarak was overthrown in a non-violent revolution in February, and Palestinians in Gaza had been eagerly anticipating an announcement like this from the new Egyptian government.

The Egyptian Foreign Minister, Nabil al-Arabi, called the blockade on Gaza “shameful”, and said that the border will be opening to both people and goods in the coming days.

Representatives from both the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank (run by Fateh), and the Palestinian Authority in Gaza (run by Hamas), welcomed the decision. Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat urged Israel to follow Egypt’s lead and ease the blockade on Gaza, saying, “We welcome this step by Egypt. We have been pressing them all the time to end the suffering of the people in Gaza, but the real siege is caused by Israel because there are many border crossings with Israel but only one with Egypt.”

An unnamed Israeli official told Al Jazeera reporters in Jerusalem that this decision by Egypt raised serious security questions about Egypt. The anonymous source told Al Jazeera that the Israeli government believes that Hamas has a store of weapons in the Sinai peninsula in Egypt – but the source did not back that claim with any actual evidence of such a cache.
