There is little in the Middle Eastern political scene these days more shameful than the sheer incompetence and irresponsibility of both leading Palestinian political groups, Hamas and Fatah, in moving ahead to implement their national reconciliation government.This is critical for any real improvements in the lives of Gazans.Allowing the 7-year-old stalemated situation between Hamas and Fatah to persist is not a viable option. Juxtaposed against this grim reality is the pride of many, probably most, Palestinians in the ability of the armed resistance (mainly Hamas and Islamic Jihad) to fight Israel for 50 days and not surrender or be destroyed.The wider prevailing political and economic conditions suggest that Hamas, Gazans, Fatah and all Palestinians suffer increasing vulnerability at all levels that matter to them: Hamas-Gaza, Palestine, Israel, the Arab world, the Middle East and the world. Where Arab governments do hold sway, most of them seem to have quietly sided with Israel in its war on Gaza and Hamas.The fact that Hamas and Fatah have not consummated reflects irresponsibility and incompetence on their part.
