Unity! Hamas and Fatah still have not scheduled a meeting

Hamas leader Salah Bardawil says that no meeting has yet been scheduled between Hamas and Fatah leaders to work on the reconciliation that they announced some six months ago.

According to Bardawil, the reason there has been no meeting is that the two sides have not yet agreed on an agenda, and Hamas does not want the meeting to be merely ceremonial.

Hamas is claiming that Fatah has not yet even fulfilled its responsibilities under the watered-down agreement reached last May. In addition, Hamas wants to be represented in the PLO and to discuss security arrangements.

Bardawil also accused Fatah of lying about wanting to meet and blaming Hamas for this failure.

And the unity sham continues....
