Formation of Palestinian Unity Government Runs into Obstacles – Khaled Abu Toameh and Tovah Lazaroff
(dailyalert.org, May 29, 2014)

Differences between Fatah and Hamas may delay the formation of a Palestinian unity government, Palestinian sources said Wednesday. The sources told the Palestinian Al-Quds newspaper that one obstacle related to Hamas’ rejection of the idea of permitting Fatah-dominated security forces to return to Gaza. The second obstacle centers on PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Habbash, a former Hamas representative who defected several years ago and has since been an outspoken critic of the Islamist movement. A third obstacle is Hamas’ demand that 40,000 of its supporters be placed on the PA’s payroll. (Jerusalem Post)
