French diplomacy at its finest:
France's Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy said rival Palestinian factions must bury their differences and form a working government, after bloody strife in the territories last week left 13 dead.
There is a need to "push the Palestinians to overcome their divisions so that they may be united in a government which the international community can work with", he told a news conference alongside his Egyptian counterpart Ahmed Abul Gheit.
...."The only solution is that there be a national unity government which allows Fatah and Hamas to work together," Douste-Blazy said on Saturday.
Well, why didn't anyone else think of that?
