Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal is presenting a national initiative designed to overcome the current Palestinian crisis through a united front and decision-making by consensus.

In support of those goals, Meshaal called Sept. 7 for postponing the Palestinian National Council session that was set for Sept. 14, arguing that if Fatah alone held the session, it would deepen the Palestinian divide and would not give the Palestinian Liberation Organization greater legitimacy. In his speech from Doha, Qatar, Meshaal said it would be absurd if the meeting did not include Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
