"Rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas signed a landmark reconciliation pact on Wednesday, ending a four-year rift that had divided the territory envisioned for a future Palestinian state. The deal plunged Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking deeper into uncertainty as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a 'mortal blow to peace.'" [editor's note: When Hamas and Fatah are fighting, Bibi's unhappy; when Hamas and Fatah kiss and make up, Bibi's unhappy. Time to dispense with the pretense that the Israeli government wants peace any more than Hamas or Fatah do - TLK](05/04/11)
