Hamas is attending the board meeting of the Yasser Arafat Foundation for the first time at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo on Thursday.
Hamas deputy politburo chief Moussa Abu Marzouq will address the foundation's board of trustees for its sixth meeting, attended by league secretary-general Nabil al-Arabi, the head of the foundation Nasser al-Qidra told Ma'an news agency.
Abu Marzouq will brief the foundation about reconciliation, al-Qidra said.
Fatah leader Azzam al-Ahmad will also address the conference.
"My brother Moussa Abu Marzouq and I will submit a report regarding what we have reached with reconciliation and the importance of accomplishing it as soon as possible," he said..."Politburo chief"? And here I though politburos were retired when the Berlin Wall came down. Who knew that Hamas, the Gaza branch of the Muslim Brotherhoood, was keeping the Soviet tradition alive?
