The Gatekeeper and the Keymaster finally hook up

The end result could be close to the union on film between Sigorney Weaver and Rick Moranis in Ghostbusters.  The destruction of New York City was assured after the two of them mated, releasing Gozer the Traveller in the form of the Stay-Puft marshmallow man.  The union of Hamas and Fatah will most assuredly be realized in a destructive power akin to Stay-Puft, covering that part of the Middle East with the sticky goo of Islamism.

Time to cross the streams, Egon.

Palestinian rivals Fatah and Hamas 'agree to end rift' 

The Fatah party of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas, which governs Gaza, have agreed a reconciliation deal, officials say.

Under the Egyptian-brokered deal, an interim government will be formed and a date fixed for elections.

The groups have been divided for more than four years, with Hamas in power in Gaza and Fatah running the West Bank.

Israel immediately said that the Palestinian Authority could not have peace with both Hamas and Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "I hope the Palestinian Authority will make the right choice - peace with Israel."

Hamas has carried out bombings and rocket attacks against Israel for years and does not recognise its right to exist.

The US responded to the news by saying that any Palestinian unity government would have to renounce violence and recognise Israel.

Thousands of Palestinians protested in Gaza this month, calling for reconciliation.

The protests were inspired by uprisings elsewhere in the Middle East and North Africa.

The split between Fatah and Hamas occurred when violence erupted a year after Hamas won Palestinian elections in 2006. Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007.

The BBC's Jonathan Head in Cairo says that if the deal goes ahead, it will end the bitter hostility between the two sides and remove a significant barrier to the Palestinian campaign for statehood.

Read that as: we will have the combined power of Islam against Israel and we will now do the final push to eliminate Israel as a state, instill a Palestine across Israeli land and scatter the Jews, or at least what is left of them, to the winds far and wide.

But he says there are many difficult issues to resolve - such as how the two factions will share security, how Gaza and the West Bank, separated by Israeli territory, will be governed, and whether the international donors will be willing to recognise Hamas.

Signing ceremony

At a news conference in Cairo, Fatah delegation head Azzam al-Ahmad said: "We are proud that we now possess the national will to end our divisions so we can end the occupation of Palestine... the last occupation in history."

Not so veiled threat alert.

The occupation of Palestine by Jewish racists is not 'the last occupation in history', but it is the last case of ethnic cleansing practised by a Western country with the support of all the other Western countries. Whereas America abandoned South African apartheid thirty years ago, it supports Jewish apartheid to the hilt. You call the Palestinian struggle a 'not so veiled threat alert'. It's a threat to Jewish supremacy. But why should we care?
