    The Pal unity government is stillborn. It is nothing but an attempt to restore foreign aid from the West because Saudis, Kuwaitis and Iranians could not care less about the Pal plight and are only interested in using them as pawns in the game of geopolitics. They have no interest in investing their own money into the Pal abyss. As for the EU, it just wants to be rid of the entire ME problem all together and they would gladly sacrifice Israel, if they could (but the can’t). So, as the second alternative, they will sacrifice the Palestinians, if this choice presents itself. What we are seeing now is exactly that. Haniyeh can urge all he wants but no money is forthcoming from EU and for sure not from the US, sorry. What, then, is left for the Palestinians? Unfortunately, nothing good: suffering, despair economic ruin and isolation. Palestinians will eventually come around to re-thinking their position. But it may take several generations. For all those who unconditionally support the current losing Palestinian position on this forum - your enthusiastic cheerleading is foolish. There is a well known military history cliché “never reinforce failure”. You will be well advised to ponder it.
