Palestinian agreement

So, the children are getting along.  Who would have thunk it. 

      After months of talks, Hamas and its rival Fatah have reached a deal to form a coalition government, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Monday.

How long do you think this will last?  It’s predicated on the request by Tony Blair that they form a coalition government if they ever want to see the funding that the international community was giving them to run their institutions, so they were kind of forced into it.

However, Blair did mention some other conditions, like recognizing Israel and renouncing violence.  I think forming a coalition was probably the easiest of the three for them.
