Haniyeh: Some parties too immature for unity

Gaza – Ma'an – Gaza government Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh told his legislative council Sunday that he was committed to national conciliation, but that "there are some parties that are still too immature to end Palestinian division."

Giving the closing comments to assembled members of the Gaza-based PLC, Haniyeh told representatives that he and other officials had "presented a practical program to [Arab League Secretary-General] Amr Moussa to move conciliation forward" during the leader's visit to Gaza one week ago, but that his opposing Fatah party had failed to accept the offer.

According to Haniyeh, the package included the creation of a Palestinian-Palestinian understanding document, which would govern the implementation of the Egyptian unity paper, and serve in lieu of the amendments to the document that Hamas had requested but Egypt and Fatah had vetoed.

Haniyeh said that the offer was given the blessing and support of both Egypt and the Arab League.

The accusation of Fatah immaturity came two days after Hamas officials announced that President Mahmoud Abbas and his Egyptian counterpart Hosni Mubarak had agreed to amend the Egyptian unity paper, a pronouncement that was neither confirmed or denied by Palestinian Authority officials in the days that followed.
