Solana: Hamas missed opportunity for forming PA unity gov't
"EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana said the collapse of unity government talks killed hopes of ending the international economic sanctions on the Palestinian government and said Hamas missed its opportunity.
"Very sadly, I have to say the chance has been lost," he told reporters after meeting with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
"Some conditions have to be met in order to have full cooperation with the international community and the president (Abbas) has made tremendous efforts ... It has been impossible for the moment to get these conditions accepted (by the Hamas government) and therefore the situation (sanctions) will continue, but everybody has to know who is responsible ... It is not the president," Solana said, referring to Abbas."
PLAIN ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF WHAT SOLANA SAID:
"The E.U. has no guts and is totally dominated by the U.S. and Israel; therefore it has accepted the Usraeli conditions which our puppet Abbas has also accepted. These conditions include the acceptance of the Palestinians of the Israeli annexation of Jerusalem and more than half of the West Bank. In addition, the Palestinian refugees have to abandon their right to return to their homes, villages and cities. This nice man, Abbas, has accepted, but the bad people of Hamas are still demanding the rights of their people."
