Palestinian negotiator: Hamas-led gov’t will resign

This would be a good first step in working towards a workable solution to some of the many problems that plague the Mid East.  But it is just the first step.  Before any real progress can be made however, it will be up to the new “Unity Government” to demonstrate that they truly want peace. They can do this by exercising some control over Gaza by stopping the terrorists that virtually every day launch rocket attacks into Israel.  Until now the Palestinian Authority has shown that it is unable or more likely unwilling to do anything to stop the terrorist attacks. The International community and the Media continually criticizes Israel for a “disproportionate response” to terrorist attacks, yet is virtually silent on the complete lack of response by the PA to stop the same terrorist attacks on innocent civilians.  

Palestinians must make a choice, they can choose to live in peace with all their neighbors including Israel, or they can choose to continue the bloodshed & violence. The ball is in their court.     

From the Jerusalem Post

The Hamas-controlled Palestinian government will resign within two or three days to make way for a new unity government that could help end a punishing Western aid boycott and resume long-frozen peace talks with Israel, a senior Palestinian negotiator said Friday.

The negotiator took part Thursday in a nighttime meeting in Gaza where Palestinian Authority Chairman President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah and Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas pressed forward with efforts to bring their rival factions together. He spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting was not public. The two leaders were set to meet again Friday.
