Two Palestines?

Hosted by

After a week of fighting that killed at least 100 people, an "uneasy calm" is reported today in the Gaza Strip.  Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has appointed a new prime minister, but Ismail Haniyeh says he still holds that office.  In any case, Haniyeh's Hamas faction now has total control in Gaza, with Abbas' authority now limited to the West Bank.
