Palestinian PM submits resignation

Posted by alicemarziali su 7 marzo, 2009

 AL JAZEERA INTERNATIONALSalam Fayyad, the Palestinian prime minister, has submitted his resignation to Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president.

Announcing the decision on Saturday, Fayyad said the resignation would take effect after the formation of a Palestinian national unity government.

He, however, said he would quit no later than the end of March.

Fayyad’s announcement comes ahead of the resumption of power-sharing talks between Abbas, who heads the Fatah movement, and his rivals from the Palestinian Hamas group. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Une bonne nouvelle palestinenne?

Posted by alicemarziali su 7 marzo, 2009


Le premier ministre palestinien, Salam Fayyad, a annoncé la démission de son gouvernement, samedi 7 mars. Ancien fonctionnaire du Fonds monétaire international (FMI), M. Fayyad s’est attiré les louanges, pour sa rigueur et sa compétence, des principaux pays donateurs impliqués dans le dossier palestinien. La démission de cet indépendant placé à la tête d’une équipe de techniciens, innamovible ministre des finances entre 2002 et 2007, n’est pourtant pas nécessairement une mauvaise nouvelle pour les Palestiniens puisqu’il ouvre la voie, ce faisant, à un gouvernement d’union qui rassemblerait les frères ennemis du Hamas et du Fatah, à la suite de leur retrouvailles au Caire, le 25 février.

Palestinian factions agree on unity

Posted by alicemarziali su 26 febbraio, 2009

AL JAZEERA INTERNATIONAL Palestinian factions have agreed to establish five committees to address key issues for unity.

The Egyptian-brokered talks in Cairo between 12 Palestinian factions began on Thursday and follow 18 months of disharmony between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

At a news conference after the talks Ahmed Qurei, a senior Fatah official, said that the moves were a “national necessity and a response to the aspirations of our people.” Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Reprise du dialogue entre le Fatah et le Hamas au Caire

Posted by alicemarziali su 26 febbraio, 2009

près plusieurs tentatives infructueuses, les deux partis palestiniens rivaux, le Hamas et le Fatah, se sont rencontrés, “dans un climat positif et prometteur”, mercredi 25 février, au Caire, en Egypte, pour tenter d’ouvrir la voie vers une réconciliation nationale.

C’est la première fois, depuis le coup de force du Hamas à la mi-juin 2007 et l’éviction du Fatah de la bande de Gaza, qu’ils se retrouvent, sous l’égide de la médiation égyptienne. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Analysis: In a Palestinian unity gov’t, Hamas wins

Even if Hamas agrees to form a unity government with Fatah, this does not mean that the Islamist movement would change its overall strategy or soften its position on the Israeli-Arab conflict.

Barring last-minute obstacles, reconciliation talks are slated to be launched in Cairo this week between representatives of Hamas and Fatah in a bid to reach agreement on the formation of a new Palestinian unity government.

The talks are not aimed at persuading Hamas to change its ideology or recognize Israel’s right to exist or renounce terrorism.

Instead, they are designed to find a formula that would allow the two parties to sit together in a unity government whose primary mission would be to rebuild, with the help of the international community, houses and institutions in the Gaza Strip that were destroyed during Operation Cast Lead.

Fatah leaders have already made it clear that they are not going to the talks to ask Hamas to make any “political concessions.”

These leaders stressed that the talks are mainly aimed at resolving their differences with Hamas and establishing a unity government as a way of lifting the blockade that was imposed on the Gaza Strip after the movement came to power in January 2006.

Hamas spokesmen, on the other hand, have made it clear that the movement’s participation in any future government with Fatah should not be seen as a step toward “moderation.”

As a Hamas legislator in the Gaza Strip explained on Monday: “If anyone thinks that Hamas is going to give up its principles and ideology in return for ministerial posts or international aid, they are mistaken.”

He pointed out that if Hamas really wanted to change its policies, it could have done so three years ago. Then, the international community set three conditions for dealing with the newly elected Hamas regime: renounce violence, recognize Israel and accept all agreements signed between Israel and the PLO.

“Then we said no and we continue to say no today,” the Hamas representative said. “We haven’t changed and we’re not going to change just to make [Palestinian Authority President] Mahmoud Abbas happy.”

He and other Hamas representatives said that they were nevertheless not opposed to the idea of forming a unity government with Fatah “because of the huge challenges facing the Palestinian people.”

In other words, Hamas is saying that it will form a unity government with Fatah only because the new reality on the ground and the results of the Israeli general elections require that the Palestinians close ranks.

Both Hamas and Fatah realize that the only way to persuade the international community to contribute to the reconstruction work in the Gaza Strip is by ending their continued power struggle and forming a unity government.

Ever since the war ended, the two parties have been engaged in a bitter power struggle over who’s in charge of rebuilding the Gaza Strip – bickering that has prompted many countries to delay sending financial and humanitarian aid to the Palestinians there.

Hamas and Fatah are also worried about the rise of right-wing parties in Israel’s recent general election.

Both factions expect a right-wing coalition led by Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu and Israel Beiteinu leader Avigdor Lieberman to escalate tensions in the region by launching an all-out military offensive in the Gaza Strip.

Ibrahim Abu al-Naja, a senior Fatah official, said over the weekend that the latest political developments in Israel, namely the probable rise of Netanyahu to power, require that his faction join forces with Hamas.

Another Fatah leader claimed on Monday that a Likud-led coalition would signal the “death of the peace process.”

This, he said, would “undermine the Palestinian Authority and boost Hamas.”

At present, the prospects of establishing a Hamas-Fatah government appear to be slim, as the gap between the two sides appears to be as wide as ever. The propaganda war between the two parties is still raging despite efforts to create a better atmosphere ahead of the Cairo talks.

Moreover, Hamas on Monday threw a bombshell by announcing that it has arrested Fatah security officers who allegedly helped the IDF during the war in the Gaza Strip.

Some of the suspects even made televised “confessions,” saying their Fatah handlers in Ramallah had recruited them to gather information about the movements and whereabouts of Hamas members.

The Hamas allegations were strongly condemned by Abbas’s top aide and unofficial spokesman, Yasser Abed Rabbo, who rushed to accuse Hamas of seeking to sabotage the Cairo reconciliation discussions.

In any case, a new Palestinian unity government would mean victory for Hamas for two reasons: one, the movement would not be required to make any major political concessions and, two, a unity government would turn the movement into a legitimate and internationally recognized player in the Palestinian arena.

Ironically, the same forces that have been working so hard over the past three years to delegitimize Hamas are now helping the movement win the international recognition that it is so desperate to gain.

The Obama administration has given the Palestinian Authority a “green light” to talk to Hamas about forming a Palestinian unity government, a PA official in Ramallah said over the weekend.

The official said that Washington had also given Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak the go-ahead to resume his efforts to achieve reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Livni: Joining Likud gov’t a breach of Kadima voters’ trust

Jpost.com staff, gil hoffman and AP , THE JERUSALEM POST

Joining a Likud government would be a breach of Kadima voters’ trust and an act of self-delusion, Kadima leader Tzipi Livni said on Sunday evening ahead of a meeting with prime minister-designate and Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu. Speaking to the Kadima faction in the Knesset, Livni stressed the difficulties she perceived in the idea of her party joining a Likud-led coalition. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Netanyahu? Livni? Rotation? Peres won’t say

Posted by Andrea Pompozzi su 17 febbraio, 2009

Feb. 17, 2009

President Shimon Peres vowed on a visit to Beersheba on Monday to abide by the law and the will of the people when he decides in the coming days whether to entrust Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu or Kadima leader Tzipi Livni with the task of forming a new government.

But given that the law gives him wide leeway in making that choice, and that the will of the people produced less than decisive election results, Peres’s comment offered little. And he made no further clarification.

For now, the president said, he wasn’t even running through the options in his own mind. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Bibi, Livni seek coalition crisis ‘savior’

Sources close to Kadima leader Tzipi Livni and Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu expressed hope on Sunday that a “responsible adult” would intervene in their efforts to build a new government after the two sides grew further apart.

Both Netanyahu and Livni called for the formation of a national unity government during the campaign, but they have been sparring over who should head it since last Tuesday’s election, when Livni’s Kadima won one more seat than Netanyahu’s Likud but the Right bloc beat the Left by 10 mandates.
