My comments : There does appear to be a time table in place here that is moving forward, with or without the agreement of key Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah.
The Egyptians, Israelis, Saudis and others are deciding what is best for the West Bank and Gaza Palestinians. Simply because they have not been able to sort things out despite so much time having been wasted.
Moral of the Story : If you dont know how to take care of your country, others from the outside will come and do it for you.
Egypt wants Fatah / Mahmoud Abbas to take over the Gaza, now run by Hamas (aka Muslim Brotherhood / Ikhwan Muslimin).
A big chapter is closing in the Middle East. I will not be visiting the Middle East perhaps ever.
