The United States and European governments want the Palestinians to set up a government of non-partisan technocrats. That would spare them the problem of deciding how to deal with representatives of Hamas,
which they call a "terrorist group". The West had shunned a previous national unity government headed by Hamas after it had won parliamentary elections in 2006. Many Arabs and Palestinians said Western powers were punishing the Palestinians for their democratic choice. But several participants, including senior Fatah official Ahmed Qurei, refused to rule out the possibility of a cabinet that represents the different groups. "It could be a government of groups, it could be a government of technical experts or it could be a government of technocrats," he said, adding the type of the cabinet was up to the committee handling the issue. The Islamist group Hamas and the rival Fatah group, which dominates the Palestinian Authority, have different visions of the crucial question of how to deal with Israel. Hamas, which has controlled Gaza since June 2007, reserves the right to fight Israel, although it is prepared to accept an 18-month truce. Fatah, which controls the West Bank, has renounced violence and puts all its hope in negotiations.
One participant said a disagreement emerged in the talks about the fate of the upcoming legislative and presidential elections. He said several groups wanted to set a fixed date in January 2010 for the polls to allow President Mahmoud Abbas to remain in power unchallenged as long as possible. But the final statement said the polls would take place by January 2010, leaving open the possibility of early elections.

And like big saviours so as they call it, the US and the European governments are being liable caretaker, pushing up all their efforts to save Palestine from further distruption or politic problems for the better good of the global world in the future.
