The political split between Gaza and the West Bank is an opportunity for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, a former Palestinian national security adviser said Saturday. Mohammed Dahlan, Fatah's strongman in Gaza until the takeover of the coastal strip by Hamas, told a security conference in Geneva he was confident that Palestinians across the political spectrum would support a negotiated settlement with Israel if asked in a referendum. "What happened in Gaza should not been seen as an excuse to evade the peace process," Dahlan said, adding that the division between the two Palestinian territories represented "an opportunity" rather than a stumbling block on the path toward an agreement with Israel.
