Donor countries should send Gaza reconstruction funds directly to property owners and contractors, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayad said Wednesday, offering a plan that effectively bypasses Hamas. Fayad is preparing a detailed spending proposal for international donors, to be presented at a pledging conference for rebuilding Gaza after Israel's offensive against Hamas last month. The conference is set for March 2 in Egypt, with about 80 countries and organizations participating. Fayad heads the West Bank-based government formed after Hamas' violent takeover of Gaza in June 2007. Hamas has said it wants to have a say over how the money is disbursed. However, the international community is unlikely to hand hundreds of millions of dollars to the Islamic group, still shunned by most of the world.
