A Sliver of Hope Unites West Bank and Gaza

Palestinians celebrated in Manara Square in Ramallah, while Fatah and Hamas officials met in Cairo to end a four-year schism.


<h6 class="byline">By ISABEL KERSHNER and FARES AKRAM</h6><h6 class="metaFootnote">A version of this article appeared in print on May 5, 2011, on page A12 of the New York edition with the headline: A Sliver of Hope Unites West Bank and Gaza.</h6>

RAMALLAH, West Bank — Thousands of Palestinians, led by youth activists, have poured onto the streets of the West Bank and Gaza in recent months to demand national reconciliation.

But when the leaders of the rival Palestinian factions, Fatah and Hamas, signed a historic, if preliminary, agreement in Cairo on Wednesday to end a four-year schism and unify the two Palestinian territories, wariness and skepticism precluded any mass outpouring of joy.

At the Brazil coffee shop in Ramallah near its central Manara Square, men carried on playing cards and chatting, largely oblivious to the speeches of Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Authority president and Fatah chief, and Khaled Meshal, the leader of Hamas, based in Damascus, Syria, as they were being broadcast for the first time. The sound was muted on the flat screen television fixed to the coffee shop wall.
