Fatah is afraid that Hamas's chances of winning the elections, especially in the West Bank, are very high. Hamas is not willing to relinquish control over the Gaza Strip, certainly not to Abbas and the Palestinian Authority, who were expelled from there in 2007.
Each party cares only about its own interests, while at the same time lying to the world that it is all Israel's fault. Hamas continues to invest enormous resources in digging new tunnels, in preparation for a new war with Israel.
All this is being done with the help of anti-Israel governments around the world, and groups such as the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, whose only goal is to delegitimize Israel and demonize Jews rather than to help the Palestinians.
