delight in Israel. It Abbas is doing exactly what the Pal constitution dictates, announcing the 4-yearly elections and giving the correct 90 days' notice. If he hadn't, the accusation would no doubt have been of unconstitutional behaviour! Hamas was reportedly disagreeing with 3 specifics in the reconciliation deal. One is that they will not surrender the right to resist Israeli occupation, as the US and EU have tried to make a condition. And why should they? The others are wrangles about the number of constituency v list seats and the security force arrangements, where both sides are vying for advantage. No doubt Hamas is also seeking a delay to give its electoral support time to recover. (Political parties do that kind of thing). It hardly sounds like a grievous parting of the ways. It would be better if they sort it out and have a democratic election, it would give the PA more legitimacy in its dealings vis a vis Israel.
