Fatah, Hamas Unity Deal Threatens Foreign Aid

Thursday, May 26, 2011

Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank receive more foreign aid per person than any group of people in the world. The EU and its members alone give around a billion Euros a year to the Palestinian Authority. This is one of the main reasons that the Palestinian economy is growing. However, the unity deal recently signed between Fatah and Hamas could jeopardize all that. The BBC's West Bank correspondent, Jon Donnison reports.

Very interesting. And we are surprised that no progress is made?
