Israel is rounding up Hamas people in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Nobody gave the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation effort much of a chance of actually working. And few would have bet real money that the Palestinians would manage to pull off real elections in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem later this year. But the Israelis might be thinking, let’s not take any chances. These arrests might also be a way to add pressure on Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas to stick with embryonic – and also most probably doomed – peace talks with Israel.
