Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal said on Friday that his movement would work toward reconciliation with rival Palestinian faction Fatah in order to "evaluate what compromise has brought us … and pursue our real national options," according to a Reuters report. "Any leader who insists on the right of return … must know that the way to do this is not through negotiations … but through the holy struggle, resistance and national unity," Mashal was quoted by the news agency as saying. Mashal's comments came following Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's announcement that he would not be running for a second term in the January 2010 election.
