ABSTRACT
The article looks at the reconciliation between the Palestinian political parties Fatah and Hamas in relation to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, as of May 2014. It notes the agreement includes elections for a Palestinian unity government. The author expresses the view that Israel stands to gain from the agreement whether or not it succeeds in politically unifying the Palestinians of the West Bank and Gaza Strip and that Israel's actions suggest it does not want a two-state solution.
