Abbas on verge of dissolving PA?

"President Abbas will give Hamas one last chance," said Nabil Amr, a Fatah legislator and adviser to Abbas. "At this stage, all options are open and the door remains open for the formation of a unity government." Amr and other Fatah officials said they did not rule out the possibility that they would initiate a no-confidence vote in parliament against the Hamas-led cabinet if the national unity negotiations failed. They are hoping that such a move would succeed, since more than 20 Hamas legislators are in Israeli prisons.

HAMAS refuses to be a part of an unity government if that government recognizes Israel's right to exist, and refuses to comply with any agreement made that is not simply and totally beneficial to the HAMAS position.

International funds have been cut since HAMAS' refusal to seek peace, refusal to recognize Israel's right to exist and refusal to recognize the Oslo accords. Abbas is no lover of Israel, he is simply trying to free up the West's money.

Looks like its inevitable. Hamas cannot recognice Israel, especially after the current war.

The big question is if the government is disolved and elections take place again, will Hamas win even more seats?

Democracy is only useful when they vote in the people that you want :)

The political crisis in the Palestinian Authority deepened on Monday as PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas called off a scheduled meeting with Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. They had planned to discuss a Hamas-Fatah national unity government.

Abbas was to travel to the Gaza Strip on Monday but canceled the visit because of recent statements made by Hamas leaders, senior PA officials here told The Jerusalem Post.

They said Abbas was especially angry at allegations made by Atef Udwan, a PA minister-without-portfolio, that Abbas was withholding the salaries of PA civil servants in an effort to extract political concessions from Hamas.

They just aren't getting along, it seems.
