Barghouti's silence,there are two senior fatah people in Gaza who are still with Hamas and who view Dahlan as a traitor who conspired against the elected government.Egypt's approval of Plan A is just to hoodwink Abbas,I am pretty sure.They have to be seen as a major player and can't afford to offend their local opposition. Most important of all,what precisely is Abbas going to do after the initial excitement of appointing the new 'illegal' government?What is he going to deliver ? He'll be the laughing stock of the international community which is certainly watching. I predict that this so called new government will collapse like a deck of cards.
