Senior Journalist: Hamas and Fatah Deal Won't Last


Hamas and Fatah have tried numerous times in the past to work together, but the deals never “stuck” - and neither will this one, said journalist Baruch Yedid, who has reported on and has excellent connections with the Palestinian Authority for years.

Speaking to Arutz Sheva, Yedid said that the agreement between Fatah and Hamas last month to join together to run the PA is doomed to fail, if past performance is any indication. The two groups are so far apart ideologically and politically on so many issues, “the likelihood of a true collaboration are less than next to nothing,” he said.
