      Abbas Meets with Former Hamas Minister

      Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority (PA) met, over the weekend with Nasr Ad-Din Ash-Shaer, a former minister in Hamas's government in Gaza, according to a Monday-morning report by Kol Yisrael government radio.

      The two agreed to advance efforts for reconciliation between Hamas and Abbas's Fatah faction. Palestinian Authority analysts speculate that the reconciliation talk has renewed recently due to difficulties in the negotiations between the PA and Israel.
