Unity! Hamas arrests Fatah youth, elections now in doubt

In the wake of the latest photo-op of Hamas/Fatah unity in Cairo, Hamas has arrested four more Fatah youth leaders in Gaza.

Fatah demanded that Hamas immediately release the arrested youths.

One of the major "agreements" made in Cairo was for the PA and Hamas to release all political prisoners of the other party. That's supposed to happen Any Day Now.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Saleh Aruri, member of Hamas' political bureau, said that no elections will be held until every part of the reconciliation agreement is complete beforehand - pretty much the same agreement signed in May and not yet implemented.
