Hamas: Parties have 2 days to decide to join gov't

Hamas has told Palestinian parties they must decide by Monday whether to join a Hamas-led government, a spokesman for the group said Saturday. Hamas spokesman Salah Bardawil said two smaller factions were expected to join - the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a terror group, and Mustafa Barghouti's Independent Palestine. He said there are still differences between Hamas and the defeated Fatah Party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Fatah leaders have said they would not join a Hamas government.
