I hope they do it. Obama would be breaking U.S. law if he continued to fund the Palestinians with Hamas (a designated terrorist organization) as a member of the government.

(Times of Israel) — Hamas Politburo Chief Khaled Mashaal will meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to announce the formation of a new Palestinian unity government, Israel Radio reported on Saturday.

The two will commence consultations for establishing a joint government on Sunday, and within ten days they will announce its foundation.

Hamas leader Osama Hamdan said Fatah and Hamas representatives will meet in Cairo this week to discuss the composition of the government and the date Mashaal and Abu Mazen will meet.

In an interview with a Kuwaiti newspaper, Mashaal said that the events in Syria have affected relations between Iran and Hamas and Hezbollah but did not specify how.

He confirmed that the Hamas leadership left Damascus and is now dispersed between several countries.

Mashaal called on the US earlier on Saturday to stop hindering reconciliation between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.
