    “[Fatah] Revolutionary Council member and [Official Fatah] Movement Spokesperson Osama Al-Qawasmi said: ‘Despite all of the differences of opinion with Hamas, and despite everything that it has done to harm the legal Palestinian government (apparently refers to 2007 Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip; see note below –Ed.) , we know the order of priorities of the national activity well. We firmly oppose the American-Israeli attempts to denounce Hamas as terrorist at the UN, and we will fight to thwart the proposal.’ … The UN General Assembly will vote this Thursday [Dec. 6, 2018] on an American resolution proposal condemning the Hamas Movement for firing rockets at Israel… The American delegation to the UN said in a statement that it had hoped that the vote on the resolution proposal would be held on Monday, but the pressures exerted by the Palestinians succeeded in causing the vote’s postponement to Thursday.”

2007 Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip - Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah won the 2005 Palestinian Authority Presidential election. However, Hamas won the 2006 parliamentary elections in both the Gaza Strip and West Bank, with a majority of 74 out of 132 seats, to Fatah’s 45 seats. Fatah’s rule of the PA Presidency and Hamas’ rule of the PA government led to friction and eventually armed conflict between Hamas and Fatah. Hamas defeated Fatah militarily in the Gaza Strip in 2007, and since then Hamas rules in Gaza while the PA continues to rule the West Bank under Fatah.
