Intra-Hamas split seems to widen

Palestine Press Agency quotes London-based Al Hayat that the much reported split between the Gaza leaders of Hamas and the Damascus political leadership continues to widen.

The latest salvo, according to the report, comes from Khaled Meshal, who heard that his Gaza rival Mahmoud al-Zahar was going to meet with a Swiss group. Meshal told the Swiss that Zahar does not represent Hamas, but only the Damascus leadership does.

Meshal then went on to deny that there was any split in Hamas.

If Hamas can't even gets its own act together, how real can the "unification" with Fatah be?
