Full marks to Egypt’s newly elected president, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. Alone among the world’s statesmen, he has refused to recognize the cobbled-together Fatah-Hamas “unity” government. Hamas is formally designated a “terrorist organization” by the United States and the European Union, just as it is by Egypt. All the same, based upon Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas’s assurances that his new administration is composed solely of non-political technocrats, that it will honor all agreements entered into by the PA, recognize Israel and reject terror, the US and the EU, together with the United Nations and China, have declared that they accept and will work with the new administration. 

Once again, led by the US, the world as a whole prefers to turn a blind eye to stark reality in favor of insubstantial hopes and unachievable promises.
