ABSTRACT
This article reports that as the situation in Gaza appears to edge closer to crisis point, the relationship between the old Fatah and the new, juxtaposed with the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, took center stage of the Palestinian political arena. What has become painfully clear in the aftermath of the Israeli evacuation from the Gaza Strip is that internally and externally, the Palestinian National Authority, Fatah and perhaps even Hamas, lack a clear sense of strategy, counter strategy, or perhaps even a vision for the future of the Palestinian people.
