The article focuses on the impact of the Fatah-Hamas dispute to the Middle East region and other countries as well. According to the author, it is the Palestinians themselves that are the main victims of the said feud. However, other countries have also been affected including Egypt which attempted on some peace negotiations but eventually ended up with threats on its national security. Another failed attempt was that from U.S. President Barack Obama who failed to settle a peace agreement with Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
