The new policy is significant because it veers away from the Hamas charter which lays claim to all land, including that which is the state of Israel; and because it appears to be a major step toward reconciliation with Fatah.
Ending the bifurcation between the Hamas-controlled Gaza and Fatah-controlled West Bank [Judea and Samaria] is seen as a priority in preparing for statehood. Hamas’ acceptance of the basic tenets of the peace process—even if it comes only after a referendum—arguably satisfies the preconditions of western nations in order to accept Hamas as a partner in a Palestinian government.
