"Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas on Thursday accused the United States of undermining efforts to form a new coalition government and called on Europe to take the lead in lifting international sanctions against the Palestinians.
Haniyeh spoke a day after U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the new Palestinian government would have to accept international demands to renounce violence and recognize Israel.
"The U.S. administration does not want the Palestinians to be unified. It puts obstacles in the way of this political coming together," Haniyeh told reporters. "It wants to extort the Palestinian people and the Palestinian government."
Hamas, which has controlled the Palestinian government since March, caved in to the intense international pressure this week and agreed to share power with President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party."
Duh Mr. Haniyeh! It finally dawned on you that "The U.S. administration does not want the Palestinians to be unified" and "It wants to extort the Palestinian people and the Palestinian government?"
You are not the brightest bulb in the lot. But keep listening to your advisor, Ahmed Yusef; pretty soon he will make sure that you and your "national unity" government will be tied with a thousand ropes and cut a thousand cuts. Long live "national unity!"
