Senior Fatah official Azzam Al-Ahmed (L), shakes hands with head of the Hamas government Ismail Haniyeh after announcing a reconciliation agreement in Gaza City April 23, 2014..
The recently announced Fatah-Hamas reconciliation brings to mind the notorious Hitler-Stalin pact of 1939; a totally cynical alliance of sworn enemies, conceived in the temporary self-interest of the two parties without any regard for principle, and destined to be torn asunder within two years.What did each of the parties hope to gain from this Fatah-Hamas get-together?
