The rival Palestinian factions, Fatah and Hamas, have announced that a unity government will led by Mahmoud Abbas until elections can be held in the West Bank and Gaza. The agreement has created another convulsion in the Middle East. Dan Ephron, Jerusalem Bureau Chief for Newsweek magazine, considers what it means for relations with Israel, continued financial support from Western countries and a two-state solution.
