Hamas Takes Power of Palestinian Government


GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Hamas formally took power Wednesday, and the newly installed prime minister pledged to cooperate with President Mahmoud Abbas, head of the defeated Fatah party.

At a news conference in Gaza after Abbas swore in Ismail Haniyeh and his Cabinet, Haniyeh said his relations with Abbas would stress “cooperation and harmony, based on the supreme interest of the people.” Haniyeh said he and Abbas would confront “Israeli aggression against the people” as well as internal chaos.

He called Hamas’ assumption of power “a great moment.”

Yeah, great, the sworn terrorist enemies of peace are now in control, ready to drive their country, and the stagnant peace process, directly into the ground. A “great moment” of status quo and medicrity.

Update

And so the game begins.
