Hamas and Fatah Announce Unity Government
Posted by Shadi Hamid

This is very interesting. Hamas, as part of a unity agreement with Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah, has agreed to "respect" previous treaties with Israel. I suppose there will be a lot of commentary about what exactly such "respect" entails, and whether it will be enough for Western donors. Whatever the case may be, this announcement (if it holds) will put an end to the destructive, low-intensity civil war between Hamas and Fatah. That's long overdue and, for the first time in recent memory, we can credit the Saudis with doing something positive for the region.

What is your prediction that this will stick? And it is good to see the Saudis do something positive- I'd like to see them stop funding terrorists too.

Hamas has already announced that it will not recognize Israel. Furthermore, the deal doesn't deal with the fundamental problem in the territories -- the fact that the government does not have a monopoly of violence. Until the central government, and not Hamas or Fatah, controls the police and security forces, there will be no peace for the Palestinians.

Measure out a good length of wire line or Links of London Letters, if the balls are larger, leather or cotton cord. Should be enough to wrap around your neck than 5 inches. If you are using wire, slide a bead embedded in one end and a part of clasp. Pass the cable through the securing of accounts, adjust, and then flatten the Links of London Sale with crimping pliers. Trim the tail of wire. String accounts. If you want a symmetrical pattern, start with the Links of London Pendants and add segments on each side. Add the second part of the hook or, if you are using a snap hook Should silver jewelry be plated? Silver coating can be done with rhodium, white gold, yellow gold and platinum, even. Another thing you should know when to buy silver Links of London online may no longer be done by hand or machine. Of course, pieces of handmade silver are priced much higher than machine-made counterparts because more value is placed on the works of human hands.

Frankly, I think that's absolutely good stuff.

the record,that- the Republican side there seem to have been five votes for Iraq, four votes each for Islamic extremism and "security," and one vote each for foreign affairs, war on terrorism and climate change...

It is just another way for business interests to reduce the prevailing wage in our country. Besides, a guest worker is a second-class citizen, an UnAmerican idea.
