In view of deferring action on the report compiled by Richard Goldstone regarding war on the Gaza Strip, resubmitting it to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva and endorsing it, the Palestinian scene witnessed different public and official reactions towards the PA’s handling of the report. The UN Human Rights Council Report was the main factor in escalating the war of words between the poles of the Palestinian political system. Time again and after raising the expectations of the Palestinian public to an imminent national reconciliation agreement following several rounds of talks, a national reconciliation agreement has not been signed by some Palestinian factions including Hamas; most Palestinian factions who are members of the PLO, signed it On another scale, some Palestinian resources revealed President Mahmoud Abbas’s intention to issue a presidential decree in which he will assign a date for Palestinian Presidential and Legislative elections as it is a constitutional demand whether a reconciliation is achieved or not.
