    Hamas agreed to share power with Fatah - it's a unity government, and Abbas has been given the authority to negotiate peace. Of course, it is required that any peace deal be approved by an expanded PLO that includes Hamas and Palestinians everywhere. Just an aside - many people think an overwhelming majority of Palestinians favor Hamas, but that is not true: Excerpt from a press release (Mar 26, 2007) by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research: "If new legislative elections are held today, 37% would vote for Hamas, 43% for Fateh, 11% for other lists, and 8% remain undecided..." And "If new presidential elections are held today and the only two candidates were PA President Mahmud Abbas and PA Prime Minister Ismail Hanieh, 47% would vote for Abbas and 46% for Hanieh...But if the only two candidates were Marwan Barghouti and Ismail Hanieh, Barghouti [Fatah] would receive 52% and Hanieh 43%." http://www.pcpsr.org/survey/polls/2007/p23epressrelease.html
