PA daily: Hamas views expressed in speech by Mashaal match PA political positions 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 11, 2012
     “In the address delivered in Gaza by the head of the Hamas Political Bureau Khaled Mashaal, there is nothing that differs notably from the political discourse in the Palestinian Authority. In reactions of friends who followed the speech with me, it was said that Mashaal’s language in this speech is almost [exactly the same] as that of Fatah, in one way or another, especially with respect to everything regarding the national principles and reconciliation, and even with respect to resistance as a means and not an end…
The important thing is that Mashaal’s speech, in general, was positive and important, even though he said nothing new, especially concerning national reconciliation…
Resistance, statehood, reconciliation, the program for national accord, and the PLO – none of these things are controversial, and in fact they never were. Also, the separation must end, since there is nothing about it that is good for the homeland. So where might conciliatory steps trip up in the coming days? I mean the path is no longer dark or filled with obstacles. Rather, it is clear and open. So when will the next steps begin? We have nothing that has to be discussed again or that we have to begin a dialogue about. The documents are ready, the agreements have been signed, and the Doha declaration is waiting to be enacted – no more, no less. So when will we begin?”
PA daily columnist praises Fatah-Hamas "unity" during the Gaza conflict 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 23, 2012
On Nov. 14, 2012, Israel launched an aerial offensive in the Gaza Strip called Operation Pillar of Defense, with the aim of crippling the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza and protecting Israeli civilians from Hamas rocket fire. On November 21, Hamas and Israel reached a cease fire.
Columnist for official PA daily Adel Abd Al-Rahman on the cease fire:

     “The cease-fire [between Israel and Hamas] went into effect sponsored and guaranteed by Egypt, with American supervision by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The advantages are as follows:
Firstly: Ending the barbaric Israeli aggression, and removing the threat of an even more despicable and bloody Israeli massacre of Palestinian people in the southern districts (i.e., Gaza Strip).
Secondly: Realization of national unity between the people at various levels and the all over the homeland, the diaspora, and the interior (i.e., Israel). This in addition to blending political activity and struggle, and between all the VIPs– notably President Mahmoud Abbas [of Fatah] and other Palestinian figures, especially Khaled Mashaal, Head of the Hamas Political Bureau –paving the way for rapid progress towards a stable national unity.

Senior Fatah official: "We salute every hand that launched a rocket at Israel from Gaza" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Nov. 22, 2012
PA TV show Topic of the Day discusses the ramifications of the cease fire between the Palestinian factions and Israel in the November 2012 conflict between Israel and Gaza.
Member of Fatah Central Committee Jamal Muhaisen: 

     "We say again: We of course praise our people's resolve in Gaza. We praise and salute every hand that launched a rocket at Israel from Gaza, and every hand that threw a stone at the Israeli side in the West Bank. And here, when signing agreements, it must not be done as if the battle was between Israel and Hamas only. The battle was [between Israel] and all the Palestinians."

Fatah MP lobbies in Europe for removal of Hamas from list of terror organizations 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 8, 2011
     “At a press conference following the meeting [between Nabil Shaath, Fatah MP and Central Committee member, and Amr Musa, Secretary General of the Arab League], Shaath added: ‘We are in a situation that requires aid, because we are facing the Israeli occupier, and right now there is no hope of any sort of negotiations with them. This is because they do not recognize the sources of authority of the peace process, nor the need to implement that which was agreed upon in the past.’…
He emphasized that the result of the [planned Palestinian] elections is what will determine the level of participation of each faction in the future Palestinian government, such that no one will be left out. He said, ‘I was recently in Europe, and we are acting for Hamas to be removed from the list of terror [organizations] and for the countries of Europe to recognize any national government in which Hamas and the other elements participate.’”
Shalit deal motivates kidnappings and strengthens Hamas 
Source: Al-Ayyam, Dec. 1, 2009
Hani Al-Masri, PA columnist:
Headline:
"The effect of the prisoner exchange deal on the Palestinian map"
     "The degree of influence of the prisoner exchange deal [on Palestinian society] is dependent on the conditions of the deal and whether it follows Israel's criteria, which include not freeing those serving lengthy prison terms ("whose hands are stained with blood") [parentheses in original] ...
The information thus far shows that Israel's criteria have largely been shattered, while the Palestinian criteria have been breached to a lesser degree...
Completing the deal according to Palestinian criteria means:
a. Israel understands only the language of force, since kidnapping is the only thing that leaves open the gates of hope for freedom for prisoners with long prison terms. This encourages others towards self-sacrifice for the sake of the homeland and to respond to the mandatory call to resist the occupation and to cause it loss of life.
b. Israel was forced to negotiate - even if indirectly - with a Palestinian organization, that refuses to recognize it and to stop its (violent) resistance, and does not accept the Quartet's conditions. This will weaken Israel's ability to object to European, American and international contacts and meetings with the Hamas movement.
c. The Hamas movement's success in completing the prisoner exchange will deal it an important hand that will improve its internal [Palestinian] position, especially since the [exchange] deal occurs at a time when the bilateral negotiations [between Israel and the Palestinian Authority] have reached a dead end."
