Two Palestinian factions have stunned the Middle East with an agreement to get together. Fatah, which governs the West Bank, and Hamas, which broke away and won elections in Gaza, will form an interim government, followed by elections in both Palestinian Territories. The agreement announced today reportedly was reached after a series of secret meetings in Egypt, and is expected to be formally signed in Cairo. Dan Ephron is Jerusalem Bureau chief for the Newsweek.
