Vice Premier Shimon Peres said Wednesday that the national unity government the Palestinians were trying to establish would be nothing more than a "facade," because Hamas militants who would be represented aren't interested in peace. Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas declared last week that efforts to form such a government had broken down, but Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas denied negotiations had reached a dead end. Hamas would use such a government in an effort to restore international funding that dried up after it took power, Peres said. "Hamas doesn't want peace, even if we give them '67 borders," Peres said. "Hamas wants to use Fatah as a facade to get money."
