So what else could it be then? Well, it could be that Hamas wants to ensure FATAH don’t drop this right in future. It could be that Hamas is forcing Abbas to reiterate what was decided at the conference in August 2009, in order to ensure that the right to resist is NOT off the table should any unity deal take place with Hamas and FATAH.Egypt then delayed the date of signing for Hamas, And it now appears that Hamas has studied the deal and now feels assured the right to resist will remain a Palestinian right.
The Hamas movement announced on Friday it was ready to accept the national reconciliation agreement and that it was scheduled to be signed on 26 October.True that in the past there have been conflicting reports regarding a “completed” unity deal that Hamas was “going to sign up to”, many of these “reports” were created by the US/FATAH and Israel team in an attempt to pressure Hamas and spread false information to cause unrest within the Hamas organisation. Now it appears that Hamas has finished assessing the situation and now feel assured over sections that concerned their party. So, judging on the next report, I think we can all assume it’s a done deal this time. AS Egypt has just released ALL Hamas members it held held in its jails, they are now free to return to Gaza. Now, that’s the writing on the wall, the deal is done, that’s why Egypt has released them:
Ahmad Yousef, a senior official at the de facto Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told Ma'an in a telephone interview that "after holding intensive consultations, the movement will deliver its positive stance toward the Egyptian proposal on Saturday, with a few minor notes."
"From the beginning, Hamas never objected to the Egyptian proposal, but needed time to clarify a few points, particularly the conditions placed by the [International] Quartet," he added, referring to demands that Hamas recognize Israel, renounce violence and accept previously signed agreements before being allowed to participate in negotiations.
Cairo sources: Egypt has released Hamas men from custody
Egypt has released almost all the Hamas men it had held in custody and has allowed them to return to the Gaza Strip, Israel Radio quoted security officials in Cairo as saying on Friday night.
