Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh proposed an initiative to renew talks between his group and its rival Fatah, Israel Radio reported on Tuesday. According to the initiative, the PLO will be declared as a common ground for all Palestinians; armed struggle will be defined a legitimate right which should be protected, and respect of democracy and of elected authorities will be embraced. Haniyeh added that preventing external intervention in Palestinian matters was also part of the proposal. While speaking with reporters, Haniyeh said he supported Arab mediation between Fatah and Hamas, adding that he and his government were willing to pay the price of national unity and resign their positions.
