Barak casts doubt on unity deal maturing into joint gov't

The unity agreement between Hamas and Fatah has "dramatic potential" but it is doubtful that it will mature into a joint Palestinian government, Defense Minister Ehud Barak told Israel Radio Thursday morning.
Barak admitted that Israeli intelligence had foreseen a low probability for a reconciliation agreement, and noted that Palestinian officials were also skeptical about it.
He told Israeli Radio that he does not know how the unity deal will affect negotiations for the release of Gilad Schalit.
